This is a tank move, and a salary cut. I don't like this move one bit. Its a gamble by Ainge, and I don't like it. The deal will send Crawford and Brooks to GSW, and the Heat will get Toney Douglas, and the Celtics get Joel Anthony from the Heat. The Celtics also get some picks, not worth it to me. Shawn will have more on this deal later.
The Boston Celtics have traded Jordan Crawford and MarShon Brooks to the Golden State Warriors in a three-team deal that will send Toney Douglas to the Miami Heat and Joel Anthony and two draft picks to Boston, sources told ESPN.com.
Rondo is also headed to play with the Red Claws for the day.
The Celtics announced Wednesday that they have assigned Rondo to the Maine Red Claws of the D-League in order to take part in a workout.
"Rajon is progressing terrifically in his rehab and this is the next step," Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said in a statement. "This is a brief assignment so that Rajon can participate in a workout this afternoon with the Red Claws and he will be called back up to the Celtics upon the conclusion of the workout."
