Trade Imminent: Boston Celtics close to sending Jeff Green to Memphis Grizzlies for Tayshaun Prince and draft pick

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.
