I know I'm late but can somebody tell me why the Wizards did this trade? What did the Wizards want in Collins (since Barbosa can't play and is i'm sure free to sign with anybody after he recovers)? Couldn't they have got like a draft pick for him?

No, Crawford had essentially no value. They just wanted him gone.

Jordan Crawford picked No. 27 -- not because of his draft position -- but 7-2 = 5, one of his preferred digits.

Crawford: “Nervous, more than anything. This is Boston Celtics. You hear about them growing up, so just to be on this team is an honor.”

Crawford on KG summer incident. “It was never a thing. It was just basketball. Now we’re on the [same] team, hopefully I can help them.”
He's saying the right things. I hope he doesn't forget how to play ball like JT did.

I forgot about this:
