NBA Trade Rumors 2013: Wizards send Detroit native Jordan Crawford to Celtics for Leandro Barbosa

Jordan Crawford, who was made kind of famous for once dunking over LeBron James, was traded from the Washington Wizards to the Boston Celtics on Thursday for the expiring contract of Leandro Barbosa. The Wizards will get Barbosa, too, but he's done for the season with a torn ACL.

David Aldridge appeared to have the news first, although initial reports were that the Celtics were giving up on Fab Melo for Crawford. It was later confirmed that the swap would involve Barbosa, not Melo. Shedding Crawford means the Wizards will save about $2.1 million in cap space next season. The Celtics get a high usage scorer.

Crawford, a 24-year-old native of Detroit, is putting up his best numbers in his third season in the NBA, but that's not saying much. The volume shooter has only a 51 TS% and a 47 eFG% while averaging a little over 13 points per game in just over 26 minutes.

What a blockbuster...
