The Boston Celtics have acquired guard Malcolm Brogdon from the Indiana Pacers in exchange for center Daniel Theis, guard/forward Aaron Nesmith, forwards Malik Fitts and Juwan Morgan, guard Nik Stauskas and a 2023 first-round draft choice.

During a press conference, Malcolm Brogdon shared some of his thoughts on joining a contending Celtics team: “I’m in my prime … this is everything I’ve wanted. I think it’s the perfect time for me.”

Brogdon, a 6’5” guard, led the Indiana Pacers in scoring last season with 19.1 points, along with 5.1 rebounds and 5.9 assists in 33.5 minutes per game.
