The Boston Celtics made a move just at the NBA's 3 p.m. trade deadline, agreeing to trade Kendrick Perkins and Nate Robinson to the Oklahoma City Thunder for Jeff Green and Nenad Krstic, according to ESPN.

Boston also agreed to send Marquis Daniels to Sacramento for cash, according to CBS Sports, and sent Semih Erden and Luke Harangody to Cleveland for a second-round 2013 pick.

In other deadline moves:

The Portland Trail Blazers traded Joel Przybilla and draft compensation that is not yet clear to Charlotte for Gerald Wallace, according to Yahoo Sports. Adrian Wojnaroski of Yahoo.com reports that Portland parted with a second-round pick; Ken Berger of CBS Sports.com says it's two first-round picks.

The Grizzlies attempted to trade O.J. Mayo to Indiana for Josh McRoberts and a first-round draft pick, but there are conflicting reports about why and when the deal feel through.

Memphis did send Hasheem Thabeet and a first-round draft pick to Houston for Shane Battier and sent Aaron Brooks to Phoenix for Goran Dragic and another pick, according to ESPN.

Ron Artest, however, is staying put.

I'm sort of puzzled by the Thunder's trading Green. Thought their plan was to let all their young talent develop together. It's a shame that they've broken up the two PG County boys, Durant & Green. I am not a Georgetown fan but have always admired Green and his game.

So I guess Doc Rivers doesn't really think he needs Perkins to beat the Lakers...thought that was the big deal at the end of the Finals?

Should be interesting to see what happens with the Thunder. I could see them taking a step back if Durant and co are put off by this.

Jeff Green had 14 points last night but took a bad 3 point show with 3 seconds left instead of passing to Durant who had a better shot. The comments on the game last night was that the Thunder needed to get a big man to help out Durant and Westbrook and maybe they think that Perkins fits the bill.

The major thing is that the Spurs showed that experience still counts in the last minute of the game and the young Thunder still has a way to go to move into the top tier.

Dumping Marquis Daniels was a no brainer but not Perkins.

No brainers are good for Boston. Something they can do.
