It was reported earlier that the Nets were among a handful of teams interested in making a deal for Jordan Crawford, who the Celtics had made available essentially with the looming return of Rajon Rondo to the lineup.
Well, in a matter of hours, really, the Nets fell out of contention for Crawford when the Celtics moved him, along with one-time Net MarShon Brooks, to the Grolden State Warriors in a 3-team deal.
Here are the details, as laid out by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports:
Boston has traded guards Jordan Crawford and Marshawn Brooks to Golden State, league sources tell Yahoo Sports.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) January 15, 2014
As part of three team trade, Toney Douglas will go to the Miami Heat, league source tells Yahoo Sports. Joel Anthony goes to Boston.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) January 15, 2014
From Miami, Boston will also receive Philadelphia's projected future first-round pick and a future second round pick, league source tells Y— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) January 15, 2014
On Philly's 1st-rounder to Boston via Miami, here's detail: If Sixers don't make playoffs this season or next, turns into two 2nd rounders.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) January 15, 2014
So, old friend MarShon Brooks is once again on the move, while the Celtics are clearly looking to free up money and also get back into tank mode, even with Rondo close to returning.
Are the Nets still in the market for a wing? Well, if they are, they'll have to now turn elsewhere.
