Jeff Green To Grizzlies Trade Finalized

Jan 11, 2015 6:29 PM

A Jeff Green trade that was first reported as being close to completion on Friday has finally been fully agreed upon.

The Memphis Grizzlies will acquire Jeff Green from the Boston Celtics, along with Russ Smith from the New Orleans Pelicans.

TayShaun Prince, Austin Rivers and a future first round pick from the Grizzlies will go to the Celtics.

Quincy Pondexter will be traded to the Pelicans from the Grizzlies, along with a 2015 second round pick.

Rivers is unlikely to play for the Celtics, sources said. The Los Angeles Clippers are in discussions with the Grizzlies to acquire Rivers.

The Celtics don’t want to take contract salary beyond this year, but the Clippers have been working to find a third team to help deliver Boston an expiring deal to go along with the second-round pick the Celtics want for Austin Rivers, sources said.
