Celtics Trade forward Brandan Wright to the Suns

Christopher Trotman/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Brandan Wright's tenure with the Boston Celtics lasted just eight games as the team has traded the forward to the Phoenix Suns.

In exchange for Wright, the Suns have sent a protected first-round pick to Boston. he pick is protected within the first 12 selections for the next two seasons and then turns into a pair of second-rounders in 2016 and '17.

Wright was one of the players the Celtics received from the Dallas Mavericks in the Rajon Rondo trade.

"I have known Brandan since he entered the NBA in 2007," Suns president of basketball operations Lon Babby said. "He is a person of the highest character who will fit perfectly into our burgeoning Suns culture. We look forward to welcoming him to Phoenix."

"The way Dallas played last year is somewhat similar to what we play -- being in the open court and pick-and-rolls," Suns coach Jeff Hornacek said.

In 35 games this season for the Celtics and Mavericks, the 27-year-old Wright is averaging 7.5 points and 3.6 rebounds per game off the bench.

It's a tribute to obviously the hard work, but all the great coaches and teammates that have gotten me to this point, and obviously staying healthy is a big part. I am proud of it but I am more proud that we got the win."

Mark Cuban Suggests Realignment in the NBA

Mark Cuban Suggests Realignment in the NBA

MichaEL Buckner/Getty Images for Reality Rocks(NEW YORK) -- The Western Conference has eight of the top-10 teams in the NBA record-wise, and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban thinks the league would benefit from realignment.

If Cuban had his way, the San Antonio Spurs, Houston Rockets, and New Orleans Pelicans would move over to the Eastern Conference while the Chicago Bulls, Detroit Pistons, Indiana Pacers, and Milwaukee Bucks would shift over to the Western Conference.

"It's not like you're reducing competition," said Cuban. "You keep Cleveland, Washington and other good teams in the East. It kind of shakes things up in terms of not just interest but also in terms of how people rebuild.

"It just changes things up and it changes the thought process of a lot of teams. It makes both conferences very competitive, at least for the short term and I think, based on the history of the teams, for the long term as well."

Cuban has not discussed his idea with commissioner Adam Silver.

Nowitzki Passes Hakeem Olajuwon on All-Time Scoring List

Nowitzki Passes Hakeem Olajuwon on All-Time Scoring List

NBA via Dallas Mavericks(DALLAS) -- Dirk Nowitzki moved past Hakeem Olajuwon into ninth place on the all-time scoring list on Tuesday night, making him the only international player in the top-ten

Nowitzki finished with 23 points in their 106-98 victory over the Kings to give him 26,953 in his career.

"It's an honor," Nowitzki said. "To do it at home, it was even more special. Getting a standing ovation, it was great."

"Hakeem, to me, was one of the greatest," Nowitzki continued. "I grew up watching him in the 90s. His footwork, his touch, was next to no other. I'm really humbled to keep climbing the ladder, blessed to stay healthy, and play at a semi-high level, I guess."

The 12-time All-Star had his longtime short doctor and mentor, Holger Geschwindner, in the crowd to see it as well.

"It's great for him to be here and see it," Nowitzki said. "He meant so much to me in my career and he still does. I'm 36 years old and we still work on my game like I'm 21 years old. It's fair to say that without him I wouldn't be sitting at number 9 right now."
