Crawford averaged 13.7 points and 5.7 assists in 39 games for the Celtics.  But he became expendable with the return of Rajon Rondo.

The Cletics announced Wednesday that Rondo has been assigned to the Maine Red Claws of the NBA Development League.

“Rajon is progressing terrifically in his rehab and this is the next step,” said Danny Ainge, Celtics president of basketball operations. “This is a brief assignment so that Rajon can participate in a workout this afternoon with the Red Claws and he will be called back up to the Celtics upon the conclusion of the workout.”

The Celtics will get Anthony in addition to a future second-rounder and also a protected first-round pick acquired initially from Philadelphia that could become a second-rounder.
