The Celtics have traded guards Jordan Crawford and MarShon Brooks to the Golden State Warriors, a league source tells the Globe's Baxter Holmes. In a three-team deal, the Warriors will send point guard Toney Douglas to the Heat, while Miami sends center Joel Anthony to Boston. The Celtics will receive a projected future 1st-round pick and future 2nd-round pick in the deal.

Rajon Rondo's impending return and Boston's rebuilding plans made Crawford expendable. When Rondo returns, he'll join a backcourt rotation of Avery Bradley, Jerryd Bayless, and Phil Pressey. Crawford, who is making $2.16 million this season, averaged 13.7 points, 5.7 assists, and 3.1 rebounds in almost 31 minutes per game this season will the Celtics. Brooks has seen very limited action since being traded to Boston over the summer.

After figuring heavily in Miami's rotation three seasons ago, the 6-foot-9-inch Anthony was averaging 3.1 minutes per game for the Heat this year. He is owed $3.8 million in salary next season.

Per Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, if the Sixers don't make the playoffs this season or next, the first-round pick turns into two second-rounders.

The news that Crawford was on the block, was first reported by New York Post columnist Peter Vecsey.
