Boston makes smart bets on triangular trades, receives Forzingis

The Boston Celtics are shaking up their starting lineup with a triple-trade.

Citing sources, ESPN reported on Feb. 22 that the Celtics have completed a three-way trade with the Washington Wizards and Memphis Grizzlies.

At the same time, the team will send guard Marcus Smart to Memphis. ESPN reports that Memphis was looking for “a strong-minded, playoff-experienced player to lead a young roster” and saw Smart as the right fit.

Memphis will send Boston its first-round picks in the 2023 and 2024 drafts. The 2023 pick is the No. 25 pick.

Washington will receive Tius Jones from Memphis, Danilo Gallinari and Mike Muscala from Boston, and the 35th pick in this year’s draft.

It looked like the deal would fall apart after news broke that trade talks between the three teams had fallen apart, but with Boston and Washington looking for new partners, the trade appears to be moving forward.

Porzingis, a former All-Star center, played in 65 games last season, averaging 23.2 points, 8.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game. The 23.2 points were a career-high.

He joins Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown in a new trio in Boston.
