Celtics set to acquire Courtney Lee from Rockets

LAS VEGAS — The Celtics’ response to losing Ray Allen to the Heat was their relentless pursuit of free agent guard Courtney Lee. And although neither president of basketball operations Danny Ainge nor coach Doc Rivers would officially comment Thursday night, two NBA sources said the Celtics have completed the framework of a deal that will bring Lee to Boston in a sign-and-trade with the Rockets.

According to the sources, the Celtics will send JaJuan Johnson, E’Twaun Moore, Sean Williams, and a 2013 second-round pick to Houston for Lee, who will be entering his fifth NBA season.
