Kendrick Perkins Trade Includes Clippers' 2012 No. 1 Pick For Celtics

In addition to acquiring Jeff Green and Nenad Krstic from the Thunder in the trade that sent Kendrick Perkins and Nate Robinson to Oklahoma City, the Boston Celtics received a 2012 first-round pick from the Los Angeles Clippers.

The pick is projected to be in the top ten and will reportedly be “the lower pick from either the Clippers or the Minnesota Timberwolves in that draft,” according to Mike Prada of SB Nation.

Oklahoma City acquired the draft pick last year in exchange for the 18th overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft, which Los Angeles used to draft Eric Bledsoe. The Clippers received the pick back in 2005 in the trade that sent Marko Jaric to the Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for Sam Cassell.
