When the Golden State Warriors made a deal with the Boston Celtics for Jordan Crawford and MarShon Brooks on Jan. 15, they had the lowest scoring bench in all of basketball. It has been roughly two weeks since the trade, and CLNS takes you through a look at how the two have fared out in Golden State thus far…
Jordan Crawford is currently averaging 6.6 points, 1.8 assists, and 1.1 rebounds in six games with his new team so far. His highest scoring game came against the New Orleans Pelicans on Jan. 18, when he had 10 points on 4-6 shooting, including 2-3 from 3-point land.
Crawford was having a career-year with the C’s before the trading, putting up 13.7 points, 5.7 assists and 3.1 rebounds. At this point, Crawford’s future with the Warriors is very dependent on how he plays down the stretch.
Brooks, on the other hand, hasn’t seen much playing time since the move. He has checked into only three games, played only three minutes from the floor and scored only six points. There has been speculation that Brooks could be waived at some point, and that Golden State doesn’t see him in its long-term plans.
