INDIANAPOLIS - The Boston Celtics made one trade Friday night, and it looks as if Jeff Green could be on the move, too. Jrue Holiday Pelicans Jersey .Green was pulled from the starting lineup moments before Bostons 107-103 overtime loss at Indiana. He did not suit up for the game, and wasnt listed on the Celtics injury report.A person with knowledge of the talks told The Associated Press that the Celtics and Grizzlies were discussing a deal that would send Green to Memphis. The person requested anonymity because a deal had not been completed.Negotiations stretched late into the night on Friday, with the teams discussing other players and draft picks, as well as possibly adding a third team to the mix.Green is averaging a team-best 17.6 points, but the Celtics (12-22) are rebuilding and the Grizzlies (25-11) are contending in the tough Western Conference. All Boston coach Brad Stevens would say about Greens absence is he also wont be with the team this weekend.The Celtics did announce a trade with Phoenix, sending Brandan Wright to the Suns for a protected first-round draft pick.

It changes your pregame speech a little bit. Its a jolt to your system.Memphis lost 106-95 at New Orleans on Friday night. The addition of Green would give the rugged Grizzlies a versatile scorer to go along with their stout defence.Memphis veteran Tayshaun Prince was bracing for a possible relocation.Obviously, everybody was getting wind of what was going on. ... Ive been in this league for 13 years, Prince said. Ever since I signed my first deal in Detroit, I was on the trading block every year. You know what Im saying? Ever since I signed my deal after that first year, I was on the trading block every year, so its part of the business. And if thats the case, then so be it.Memphis competition out West also has been active. Houston added Josh Smith and Corey Brewer. Dallas traded for Rajon Rondo, and Oklahoma City swung a deal to land Dion Waiters from Cleveland.If the 28-year-old Green is moving on, Boston will feel it.Its hard to see anyone go, Bradley said.
