The Memphis Grizzlies completed a three-team trade with the Boston Celtics and New Orleans Pelicans in which they acquired forward Jeff Green from Boston and guard Russ Smith from New Orleans. In exchange, Memphis traded forward Tayshaun Prince and a protected future first round draft pick to Boston and traded guard/forward Quincy Pondexter and a 2015 second round draft pick to New Orleans, Grizzlies General Manager Chris Wallace announced today. As part of the trade, New Orleans also has traded guard Austin Rivers to Boston. In addition, Memphis will receive a traded player exception. NBA.com

No deal to send Austin Rivers to the Clippers had been completed as of Sunday night, though it was likely he was going to the Celtics as part of a three-team trade. While Doc Rivers said he’d be open to coaching his son on Saturday, new updates were hard to come by a day later. “I know there's been all these rumors and stuff, and I can't talk about that,” he said. “We're going to do what we need to do. I can tell you that." Orange County Register

The Pelicans had failed to find a deal for Rivers, whom they declined his third-year option for the summer of 2015, allowing him to become a free agent. Boston has discussed a deal with the Los Angeles Clippers to reunite Rivers and his father, Clippers president and coach Doc Rivers, league sources said. Yahoo! Sports
