The Pelicans agreed to trade guard to the Boston Celtics on Saturday as part of a three-team deal, which includes acquiring small forward Quincy Pondexter from the Memphis Grizzlies, league sources confirmed. The deal also involves the Celtics sending forward Jeff Green to the Grizzlies in exchange for forward Tayshaun Prince and his expiring $7.7 million contract.

Then, Henderson heard from Vince Carter, Tony Allen and several other players. No one would reveal how they learned about the incident. To a man, though, the players were eager to talk about why no one hesitated to help Henderson. “He’s dedicated to the Grizzlies. He’s always there when we need him,” Pondexter said. “We have to look out for our own. We say it’s a family around here, so we were looking out for a family member. I’ve had cars stolen. I didn’t grow up with any money, so I know how it is to be in that situation.” Memphis Commercial Appeal

Allen took part in the Memphis shootaround, but he was told to stay home as he recovers from the aforementioned virus. Quincy Pondexter was also kept out. “I’ve never witnessed anything like that, especially with it hitting that fast,” said Lee of the illness that ripped through the team. “It hit me as soon as I got off the plane in Toronto, and then it started happening one by one. I thought I was the only one that had it, and then Drew (Graham, the trainer) texted me at 3 a.m. that four other people had it. So I had a little company going to the hospital, but I’m glad it’s over with.” Boston Herald
