Indianapolis, IN (SportsNetwork.com) - Brandan Wright is on the move again.
Just over three weeks after being acquired from the Dallas Mavericks in the Rajon Rondo trade, the seventh-year center was dealt by the Celtics to the Phoenix Suns just prior to the start of Boston's game at Indiana on Friday.
The Suns will send a protected 2015 first-round pick they originally obtained from Minnesota as well as a trade exception to the Celtics.
According to Yahoo! Sports, the pick is protected if it falls between slots 1-12 in both the 2015 and 2016 drafts. Boston will receive two 2017 second- round choices in the event it doesn't receive the pick in the next two years.
Wright saw action in just eight games with the Celtics after coming over in the Dec. 18 trade involving Rondo, averaging 3.3 points, 2.1 rebounds and 10.8 minutes during his brief tenure with the team.
The well-traveled 27-year-old put together a strong 2013-14 season as a key reserve for Dallas, with Wright posting career bests of 9.1 points and 4.2 rebounds over 58 games and shooting 67.7 percent from the field.
Over 320 career NBA games, Wright owns averages of 7.1 points, 3.6 rebounds and a 60.9 percent field goal percentage.
The rebuilding Celtics may not be done dealing, as Yahoo! Sports also reported that the team has a tentative agreement in place with Memphis to send leading scorer Jeff Green to the Grizzlies for veteran forward Tayshaun Prince and another protected first-round pick. According to the report, the Celtics and Grizzlies are awaiting authorization from a third unidentified team to complete that trade.
Green was not spotted on the floor during Boston's pregame warmups for Friday's matchup with the Pacers.
