Tuesday’s roundup: Celtics obtain Lee from Warriors

Associated Press

Oakland, Calif. — A person with knowledge of the deal says the Warriors agreed to trade former All-Star forward David Lee to the Celtics for forward Gerald Wallace.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Tuesday because the trade can’t become official until the moratorium on NBA business ends Thursday.

Lee injured his left hamstring during the final exhibition and his role diminished with the emergence of Draymond Green, the runner-up for defensive player of the year.

The champion Warriors have been looking to trade Lee this summer to limit the team’s luxury tax hit next season.

Lee is due about $15.4 million in the final year of his contract. Wallace, who averaged 8.9 minutes in only 32 games last season, will make $10.1 million in the last year of his contract.

Green wrote on Twitter he wished Lee “nothing but the best and I appreciate you showing me the way Champ!!! Much love.”

Warriors All-Star guard Klay Thompson wrote on Instagram after reports of Lee’s trade surfaced: “it’s tough to see my big bro D Lee go, Boston gotta great player and true pro. A true vet who looked out for me and all the young guys. I’m not alone in saying this but DubNation is gonna miss u my man!”

The Warriors reportedly also agreed with guard Leandro Barbosa on a one-year deal worth $2.5 million.
