Celtics Acquire Green And Krstic From Oklahoma City

Celtics trade Perkins to Thunder, acquire Green

      BOSTON (AP) – The Boston Celtics have traded starting center
Kendrick Perkins to the Oklahoma City Thunder and acquired forward
Jeff Green.
      The Celtics also dealt reserve Nate Robinson to the Thunder and
received Nenad Krstic, a future first-round draft pick, and cash in
the deal that was approved by the NBA about five hours after
Thursday's trade deadline.
      Perkins recently returned from a knee injury he sustained in
Game 6 of the NBA finals. Once loaded with interior size, the
Celtics will now have to hope Shaquille O'Neal or Jermaine O'Neal
get healthy in time for the playoffs.
