Leandro Barbosa for Jordan Crawford
According to Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports, the Washington Wizards have agreed to send guard Jordan Crawford to Boston in exchange for guard Leandro Barbosa.
It was reported that Crawford was not happy about his situation in Washington and wanted a change.
Crawford is a good perimeter shooter who can score in bunches when he's hot. Having a player like Crawford definitely creates space for forwards such as Paul Pierce and Jeff Green.
Celtics will benefit from this deal because it adds depth in their backcourt. Crawford is in his third year averaging 13.2 points, 3.7 assists, and 3.1 rebounds a game this season and has recorded two career triple-doubles, including one he had back in December.
