UPDATED: Celtics acquire Green, not done dealing

By A. Sherrod Blakely

CSNNE.com has confirmed the report earlier from Y! Sports that Kendrick Perkins and Nate Robinson have been traded from the Celtics to the Oklahoma City Thunder for Jeff Green and Nenad Krstic.

Multiple media outlets report the Celtics will also receive the Clippers' No. 1 draft choice in 2012 from the Thunder.

Nor are the Celtics done dealing, apparently. CSNNE.com has also confirmed the Celtics traded Semih Erden and Luke Harangody to Cleveland for a second-round pick, Marquis Daniels to Sacramento for cash. League sources say they're are looking to add Troy Murphy and possibly another wing player.

Murphy has been bought out by the Warriors, but reportedly is weighing offers from the Celtics, Heat and Magic.

The NBA trade deadline passed at 3 p.m., but deals made before the deadline and submitted to the league office can be announced for the next several hours.

"Will miss all my Boston fans I love y'all," Robinson said in a Tweet about an hour after the trade was announced. "u guys showed me love, E.House shoes tough to fill and yall made it EZ for me."

Reached several hours before the deadline, Perkins said, "You never know what can happen."

"When it gets close to the deadline, it's like man, 'I hope it's not me,' " said Perkins, who added: "It's a business, but at the same time, I don't think anyone wants to get traded."

Report: C's first-rounder Guerschon Yabusele expected to miss summer league

It’s early for Celtics fans to be looking ahead to summer league play, but the C’s know at least one of their prospects likely won’t be there. 

Guerschon Yabusele, the second of Boston’s three first-round picks in the 2016 draft, recently had surgery to remove bone spurs from the top of each of his feet, according to ESPN.com’s Chris Forsberg. As such, Yabusele is not expected to play this summer.

A 6-foot-8 power forward from France, Yabusele was taken 16th overall in last year’s draft. He began this season playing in China before finishing the season with the Maine Red Claws of the D-League.
