OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - A three-team trade sending Jordan Crawford and MarShon Brooks from the Boston Celtics to the Golden State Warriors is complete.
The Warriors sent guard Toney Douglas to the Miami Heat as part of Wednesday's deal. The Heat moved center Joel Anthony and two draft picks and cash considerations to the Celtics in a move that creates financial flexibility for the two-time defending NBA champions.
Miami is sending Boston its 2015 protected first-round draft pick and 2016 second-round pick. If Philadelphia doesn't make the playoffs the next two seasons, the 2015 first-round pick will be a second-round selection.
The deal gives Golden State more scoring punch behind point guard Stephen Curry after the defensive-minded Douglas had struggled to provide much support. Crawford is averaging 13.7 points and 5.6 assists this season.
