Smith-USA TODAY SportsThe Celtics have made another move to get more draft picks, sending MarShon Brooks and Jordan Crawford to the Warriors in a three-team deal that lands them some draft picks and former Miami Heat center Joel Anthony.

From Adrian Wojnarowski, who originally broke the news of the deal
"As part of a three-team deal, the Boston Celtics have traded guards Jordan Crawford and MarShon Brooks to the Golden State Warriors, league sources told Yahoo Sports. The Warriors will send guard Toney Douglas to the Miami Heat, and Miami sends center Joel Anthony and a future first-round pick and second-round pick to the Celtics, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Miami will send a first-round pick it owns from the Philadelphia 76ers to the Celtics, but that pick becomes two second-round picks should the Sixers miss the playoffs in 2013-14 and 2014-15. The Heat will save nearly $10 million in salary and luxury tax with the unloading of Anthony's contract."

To clarify:
Celtics give up: MarShon Brooks, Jordan Crawford Celtics get: Joel Anthony, draft pick from 76ers
Warriors give up: Toney Douglas Warriors get: MarShon Brooks, Jordan Crawford
Heat give up: Joel Anthony, draft pick (from 76ers) Heat get: Toney Douglas

This trade seems to make a lot of sense for all teams involved. The Warriors bolster their depth at the guard position, the Heat clear up some cap space and pick up a talented backup PG in Douglas, and the Celtics get a draft pick (something they dearly covet right now) and are aided in their tanking efforts.

Looks like a win-win-win to me.
