Report: Courtney Lee trade now involves Thunder; Ryan Gomes headed to Boston

For those wondering why we did not get an official announcement of the Celtics-Grizzlies trade today - we now have an answer. According to Marc Stein of, the deal now includes the Oklahoma City Thunder, and old friend Ryan Gomes is heading back to the Celtics.

So it's possible that the Celtics will also be including a 2nd round pick to make this happen. Still a really smart deal for them though, as saving $12-13 million is well worth a future 2nd rounder.

As always with these confusing NBA deals, we'll have to wait until the official announcement before locking this one in. But if Stein is correct, Danny Ainge will have successfully re-acquired another player he traded away during the summer of 2007.

Delonte West, Jeff Green, and now Ryan Gomes. For a day or two.
