HoopsHype Courtney Lee + Trade rumors

January 10, 2014 Updates

A footnote relating to the Boston Celtics-Memphis Grizzlies-Oklahoma City Thunder trade that was completed earlier this week: the Grizzlies didn't just get shooting guard Courtney Lee and a 2016 second-round pick (via the Celtics), they were also given $1.1 million from the Thunder that must be paid within 30 business days. Considering Memphis dealt the expiring deal of Jerryd Bayless ($3.1 million) for Lee's contract that has approximately $11 million combined from this season and next, the extra cash should come in handy.

The Celtics reached an agreement to send Courtney Lee to Memphis in exchange for Grizzlies guard Jerryd Bayless, a league source confirmed to the Globe Sunday. The deal will give the Celtics a young, athletic perimeter player who has torched them in the past while, more importantly, giving the team more financial flexibility, which the organization covets in its new era of rebuilding.
