    The Memphis Grizzlies have acquired guard Courtney Lee and have sent guard Jerryd Bayless to the Boston Celtics as part of a three-team trade that also includes the Oklahoma City Thunder.

    Under terms of the deal announced Tuesday, the Grizzlies get Lee and a 2016 second-round draft pick from Boston. The Celtics get Bayless and also receive forward Ryan Gomes from Oklahoma City. The Thunder receive a conditional 2017 second-round draft pick from Memphis.

    The 28-year-old Lee has averaged 7.4 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 16.8 minutes per game this season. The 6-foot-5 guard is shooting 44.2 percent from 3-point range.

    The 6-3 Bayless averages 8.0 points, 1.9 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 21.0 minutes this season. The 25-year-old Bayless is shooting 37.7 percent.

    Lee, a Pike High School graduate, joins Mike Conley (Lawrence North) and Zach Randolph (Marion) as former Indiana All-Stars on Memphis' roster.

    Good move for Memphis. Another wing defender that can hit the 3.
    How many teams does this make for Bayless Shade?

    So the Thunder dump a worthless contract and get a pick for their trouble, not bad Presti.

    Two actually. Although the one from Philadelphia (via Memphis) is protected 51st through 55th in this year's draft, and I'm betting the one Memphis is giving them in 2017 is top 55 protected. So there's a real good chance they never see either pick. They're definitely not getting the one from Philadelphia.

    Still, gives em just enough wiggle room under the tax to sign some guy that gets released if they want, or just to be comfortable.

    "Coveted" seems kind of strong when the primary motivation seems to be dumping Courtney Lee's contract.
