BREAKING: Celtics Acquire David Lee In Trade With Warriors

The Boston Celtics have acquired former All-Star power forward David Lee in a trade the Golden State Warriors, according to ESPN's Marc Stein:

Lee, who was an All-Star in 2013, fell out of the rotation in Golden State with the emergence of Draymond Green and Harrison Barnes, and was looking to move to a team where he could get more playing time. He averaged 7.9 points and 5.2 rebounds per game last season.

Both Lee and the Warriors "resolved to work together to 'come up with a good solution' to find a new home for Lee this offseason." He is entering the final year of his contract that will pay him $15 million this season.

Wallace played a very minor role for the Celtics last season, appearing in just 32 games while averaging 1.1 points and 1.8 rebounds per game, but is in this deal for salary cap purposes. He is in the final year of his contract that will pay him over $10.1 million this season.
