The Celtics have agreed to send Kendrick Perkins to the Thunder in exchange for a package built around Jeff Green.
Green and Perkins will both be free agents this offseason, while the former will be restricted.
Nenad Krstic and Nate Robinson will also be included in the deal.

Why doesn't anyone look at the trade dealine thread lol. But yes Boston just did become weaker.
I think Shaw and Perk were probably redundant. Kristic gives them another option at that spot for a quicker line up. And i really like Jeff Green. he can effctively play the 3 & 4 and it the 3 ata decent rate.
Celtics also trade erden and harangody for a 2013 2nd and traded marquis daniels for cash wtf....
Hurts BOS now, helps them longterm likely going forward.
Green gives them some needed athleticism and slashing with his size/game, too, that they've lacked. But big(ger) thing IMO, is he is longterm for them. Versus Perk/n8.
Maybe we have better chance at Perkins now. Or, worse at Glen Davis?
Really good deal for Thunder, potentially. They can be lethal this yr w a healthy Perkins.
I'm guessing the only reason they'd be willing to do this is cause they might have Troy Murphy ready to jump in their pocket.
OKC just got a lot stronger. Their weakest point was not having a defensive big (much like us) and Nate is gonna be great off their bench.
The Celtics are too smart for this to be their only trade, they've got something in the bag mark my words.
They made 3 trades actually.
According to the NBA TV guys they think it has to do with the Collective Bargaining Agreement and Perkins and his agent.
Glad Nate is on a team I like. Was sad seeing him on the Celtics. Did have some success though. Hopefully he gets more minutes.
