How much will Jordan Crawford's playing time be affected by the impending return of Rajon Rondo to the Celtics' backcourt? That was the big question Tuesday.
Today we have a much clearer understanding; Crawford is headed to Golden State as the key player in a three-team deal that also includes Miami. Along with Crawford, the Celtics will send MarShon Brooks to Golden State, with the Warriors trading Toney Douglas to Miami and the Heat sending little-used center Joel Anthony to Boston. In addition, the Celtics will receive Philadelphia's protected future first-round pick from Miami -- it could become a second-rounder if the Sixers don't make the playoffs -- along with a future second-round pick.
