Boston Celtics acquire Perry Jones, second-rounder from Oklahoma City Thunder

The Boston Celtics acquire Perry Jones, a second-round Draft pick and cash in a trade deal with the Oklahoma City Thunder, sending a conditional second-rounder in exchange.

The Boston Celtics have acquired small forward Perry Jones, a second-round Draft pick and a sum of money in a trade deal with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The move is a luxury tax move for the Thunder as they are in need of relief on the salary cap following the signing of Enes Kanter in a $70m (£44.7m) deal.

Oklahoma City have traded Jones as well as their second-rounder in the 2019 Draft to the Celtics, while Brad Stevens's men will send a conditional second-round pick in exchange.

Jones averaged 4.3 points for the Thunder last season in 43 matches.
