Earlier today it was reported that Boston Celtics General Manager told center Brandan Wright was on the trade block. The Boston Celtics have agreed to terms to trade newly acquired center Brandan Wright to the Phoenix Suns for a future first round pick. The first round pick from the Suns own from the Minnesota Timberwolves. The pick is protected from picks 1-12 in the 2015 and 2016 NBA drafts. The picks turn into two second rounders if the picks are in the protected area.
Brandan Wright is a quality backup center. Earlier this season in Dallas, Wright shot a league high .748 shooting percentage with a .750 free throw percentage. He scored 8.8 points per game to go along with 4.1 rebounds. He barely played while in Boston. Tony Mitchell has been waived for a roster spot.
Danny Ainge has piled up even more picks. In the next four years the Celtics will have eleven first round picks along with six second round picks. Along with the Timberwolves pick from the Suns, the Celtics have the 2015 Philadelphia 76ers first round pick that are picks 1-14 protected. Those will turn into 2015/2016 second round picks if the 76ers pick falls in the protected zone.
