Well, here’s a slightly unexpected trade, in which the Warriors get deeper, the Celtics get even closer to the NBA’s bottom and the Heat save some dollars. Via Yahoo!:
As part of a three-team deal, the Boston Celtics have traded guards Jordan Crawford and MarShon Brooksto the Golden State Warriors, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
The Warriors will send guard Toney Douglas to the Miami Heat, and Miami sends center Joel Anthony and a future first-round pick and second-round pick to the Celtics, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
Miami will send a first-round pick it owns from the Philadelphia 76ers to the Celtics, but that pick becomes two second-round picks should the Sixers miss the playoffs in 2013-14 and 2014-15. The Heat will save nearly $10 million in salary and luxury tax with the unloading of Anthony’s contract.
