The Celtics have traded the expiring contract of Leandro Barbosa to Washington in exchange for 2-guard Jordan Crawford.
Crawford, a 6-foot-4, 195-pound guard out of Xavier, was the 27th overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft and is a proven scorer in the league. Last season he averaged 14.7 points per game with the Wizards. Crawford had seen his playing time reduced this season as rookie Bradley Beal came on strong for the Wizards.
Crawford is signed through next season, with a contract calling for $1.2 million this season and $2.6 million next season.
