MEMPHIS, Tennessee — The Memphis Grizzlies have acquired guard Courtney Lee and have sent guard Jerryd Bayless to the Boston Celtics as part of a three-team trade that also includes the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Under terms of the deal announced Tuesday, the Grizzlies received Lee and a 2016 second-round NBA draft pick from Boston.

The Celtics got Bayless and also received forward Ryan Gomes from Oklahoma City, whom they later waived. The Grizzlies sent a 2014 second-round pick they’d acquired from Philadelphia in August and a 2017 second-round pick to the Thunder. Both picks going to Oklahoma City are conditional.
