Person familiar with deal: Warriors acquire Crawford, Brooks from Boston in 3-team trade

A person familiar with the situation says the Boston Celtics have traded guards Jordan Crawford and MarShon Brooks to the Golden State Warriors as part of a three-team deal.

The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday because the trade was awaiting NBA approval, said the Warriors sent guard Toney Douglas to the Miami Heat. The Heat moved center Joel Anthony and future draft picks to the Celtics in a move that creates more financial flexibility.

Yahoo Sports first reported the trade.

The deal gives Golden State a more suitable backup to point guard Stephen Curry after Douglas had struggled most of the season. Crawford is averaging 13.7 points and 5.6 assists this season.
