The Golden State Warriors acquired MarShon Brooks and Jordan Crawford on Wednesday as part of a three-team trade with Boston and Miami. Crawford will stick with the Warriors for the rest of the season, however Brooks could be waived at some point to open up a roster spot should GM Bob Myers look to make another trade by the Feb. 20 or sign a free agent.
"After this deal, it doesn't change our mentality," Myers told the San Francisco Chronicle. "Nobody is sitting back and saying, 'Well, we're done now. We did our jobs. Let's see what happens.' If something came up tonight that was good, we'd do it. That's how you have to be, because it's a competitive league and everyone is trying to get better."
Brooks did not play that much with the Celtics this season and he may have the same situation with the Warriors. Brooks will be an unrestricted free agent beginning on July 1 and won't re-sign with the Warriors.
The Warriors are now $2.28 million below the luxury tax line after Wednesday's trade which gives Myers plenty of room to make more moves.
