BOSTON (CBS) — Danny Ainge is making moves.
According to Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Celtics have traded guards Jordan Crawford and MarShon Brooks to the Golden State Warriors as part of a three-team trade. The Celtics will receive Joel Anthony from Miami, while the Heat will receive Toney Douglas. The Celtics will also get “Philadelphia’s projected future first-round pick and a future second round pick” from Miami.
Earlier, Wojnarowski reported that Golden State was “chasing down a multi-team deal to bolster its guard depth.”
The Celtics figure to have had an excess of guards without making a move, as Rajon Rondo is likely to make his season debut this week.
A report from Peter Vecsey surfaced overnight, which said that the Celtics were close to dealing Crawford.
Crawford, 25, is averaging 13.7 points and a career-high 5.7 assists per game this season, when he’s averaging over 30 minutes per game. Brooks, 24, has seen limited playing time this year, as he’s gotten into just 10 games for Brad Stevens’ Celtics.
Douglas averaged 3.7 points in just 11 minutes per game for the Warriors.
