Late Wednesday night, the Boston Celtics, Memphis Grizzlies, and Washington Wizards agreed to a three-way deal that has NBA fans buzzing.

Kristaps Porzingis heads to Boston, while Marcus Smart now plays in Memphis. Meanwhile, Washington continues to restructure their roster for a rebuild.

It was a solid deal that definitely shakes things up just hours before the NBA Draft. The Athletic shares the full details of the trade package for each team involved.

The Celtics get a big scoring option in Porzingis, who should be an elite third option behind Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. On top of that, Boston somehow managed to acquire two first round picks in the deal as well.

Meanwhile, the Grizzlies might just have the best defense in the league, as Marcus Smart teams up with Jaron Jackson Jr. These two have won the DPOY award the last two years. So, good luck trying to score on Memphis.

All of the attention is on these two teams, as the Celtics and Grizzlies received the more exciting players in Kristaps Porzingis and Marcus Smart.

However, NBA fans can’t seem to agree on whether or not they like this trade.

I’m not sure I agree with this guy. The Celtics also received the best draft compensation out of this deal.

This seems like a reasonable trade grade for each team involved.

The Wizards are embracing the rebuild. It’s going to be a rough year for this team.

Grizzlies fans really like Tyus Jones

NBA fans are really unsure about the Wizards right now.

In the end, this is just another big trade before the start of the NBA Draft.

Thursday night might be bonkers, as rumors are flying all over the place. Make sure to tune in and catch the drama yourself.
