The Celtics  acquired Jordan Crawford from the Wizards, as first reported by David Aldridge.
Despite speculation that the C’s would send Fab Melo in return, team president Danny Ainge instead dealt little used backup center Jason Collins  and the injured Leandro Barbosa  — both on expiring veteran minimum contracts — according to Yahoo! Sports columnist Adrian Wojnarowski.
The 6-foot-4, 195-pound shooting guard averaged 13.2 points , 3.7 assists and 3.1 rebounds in 26.2 minutes a night for the woeful Wizards. His field goal (41.5%) and 3-point (34.5%) percentages are both career-highs. Over three NBA seasons, Crawford has shot 40 percent from the field and 30 percent from beyond the arc.
Here’s former ESPN.com analyst and current Grizzlies  vice president of basketball operations John Hollinger‘s scouting report on the 24-year-old:
- Shoot-happy guard who takes terrible shots. Capable passer when mood strikes.
- Very quick and has a good handle. Can finish, but poor long-range shooter.
- Abysmal defender. Undersized for 2. Must add strength and dial up effort.
