Celtics Trade Brandan Wright to Suns For Draft Pick

by January 10, 2015

The Celtics continued their tanking season by trading Brandan Wright to the Suns on Friday. According to Yahoo, Phoenix will send a conditional first-round pick (top-12 in 2015 and 2016) in return for Wright:

The Phoenix Suns have reached agreement on a trade to acquire Boston Celtics forward Brandan Wright, league sources told Yahoo Sports.


The Suns will send the Celtics the 2015 first-round draft pick they own from the Minnesota Timberwolves, sources told Yahoo.


The pick is protected from Nos. 1-12 in the 2015 and ’16 drafts. If the Timberwolves hold onto it through both drafts, they will then instead send their 2016 and ’17 second-round picks.
