The Boston Celtics have agreed to send forward Jeff Green to the Memphis Grizzlies as part of a three-team trade, Yahoo! Sports/FOX Sports 1 Insider Adrian Wojnarowski reported Sunday. 

Tayshaun Prince and Quincy Pondexter were unavailable Sunday night for Memphis for the Grizzlies’ game Sunday night against Phoenix, awaiting the completion of the trade.

The trade also would send Austin Rivers, the 10th overall pick in 2012, from New Orleans to Boston, and 2014 second-round pick Russ Smith from New Orleans to Memphis. Memphis also will send a protected first-round draft choice to Boston and a second-rounder to New Orleans.

Memphis coach Dave Joerger said he could not comment further until Monday, when the teams are expected to have a trade call with the league to make the deal official.
