    Warriors acquire Jordan Crawford, MarShon Brooks from Boston

    Looking to bolster their backcourt depth, the Warriors acquired Boston guards Jordan Crawford and MarShon Brooks from the Celtics Wednesday, Yahoo Sports reports. In return the Warriors will send guard Toney Douglas to Miami, and the Heat will send center Joel Anthony and two future draft picks to Boston. The deal likely means Rajon Rondo is very close to returning for Boston, as reports indicated earlier in the week. Crawford was putting up career numbers as Boston's interim starting point guard, averaging 13.7 points and 5.7 assist on the year. Brooks, on the other hand, has barely logged a minute since being traded to Boston from the Nets.
