Celtics trade Jordan Crawford for 2, or possibly 3, draft picks

It was a 3-team deal, but basically, as I understand it, here are the relevant bits:

Celtics give up Crawford and Marshon Brooks

Celtics get Joel Anthony (and are on the hook for his $3.8 million next year), a 2014 second-rounder (the Warrior's, I think), and the Sixer's 2014 first-rounder, lottery-protected this year and next year, after which it becomes two second-rounders. So the most likely haul, if I've got the details right, is 3 2nd-round picks, including one or two that are likely to be reasonably high in the round.

This is hardly a franchise-changing trade, of course, and the we shouldn't discount the fact that the Celtics absorbed a year of Joel Anthony. (We probably should discount Marshon Brooks, though, who has faded badly, and who seems to be very much a throw-in.)

Still, it seems to me to show the propensity of this franchise -- and EG in particular -- to mismanage assets and make panic trades. We sold Crawford at his absolute nadir in value -- and we created that nadir by the way we publicly trashed him and aired team laundry last year. Given the thinness of our roster -- even with Booker and Vesely and occasionally Seraphin playing a little better -- it sure would be nice to have a few extra draft picks coming up.
