It appears as though a trade between the Memphis Grizzlies and Boston Celtics is imminent. Many of the top NBA insiders are leaking juicy tidbits, and then there's also Ron Tillery tweeting from the drive-thru line of Krystal. (h/t Andrew Millen.) The deal looks to be Tayshaun Prince and a 1st round pick for Jeff Green, but the percolating word on the Twitter is that a 3rd team will need to get involved to meet Boston's needs.
I'm a little confused as to why Prince would even take the court tonight for Memphis, but the Grizzlies could just be extending professional courtesies to one of the best pros to ever suit up in Beale Street Blue.
We'll keep you all updated!
