            === Warriors acquire Crawford as part of 3-team swap ===
 
 Oakland,  CA (SportsNetwork.com)  - The  Golden State  Warriors have  acquired
 guards Jordan Crawford and MarShon Brooks from the Boston Celtics Wednesday as
 part of a three-team trade that also involved the Miami Heat.
 
 Golden  State  sent guard Toney  Douglas to the  Heat, who shipped center Joel
 Anthony to the Celtics.
 
 The  Celtics  will  also  receive  a protected  future  first-round  pick  and
 Miami's  2016  second-round pick in the  deal, as well as cash considerations.
 The  first-round pick  is  owned  by the  Philadelphia  76ers,  but that  will
 become  two second-round  selections if Philly misses the playoffs this season
 or next, according to Yahoo! Sports.
 
 The  Heat will  save  $11.5 million  in  salary and  luxury  tax by  unloading
 Anthony's contract.
 
 The  25-year-old  Crawford, who had a  career resurgence in Boston this season
 playing point guard, is averaging 13.7 points and 5.7 assists per game.
 
 Crawford  won  Eastern Conference Player of  the Week honors in early December
 when  he  averaged 23.3 points and  6.7 assists, but his field goal percentage
 has declined and his turnovers have increased since then.
 
 In 10 games played this year, Brooks is averaging 3.1 points per tilt.
 
 Golden  State has  been looking for depth at guard behind Stephen Curry, while
 Boston cleared room on the roster for point guard Rajon Rondo, who is expected
 back Friday.
 
 Douglas is averaging 3.7 points per game, while the defensive-oriented Anthony
 has seen his minutes dwindle to 3.1 per contest this season with the Heat.
