The Boston Celtics have acquired guard Malcolm Brogdon in a blockbuster trade with the Indiana Pacers, sources confirmed to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Wojnarowski reports the Pacers will acquire Daniel Theis, Aaron Nesmith, Nik Stauskas, Malik Fitts, Juwan Morgan and a 2023 first-round pick as compensation in the deal.

"The Celtics wanted to land a true playmaking point guard and now acquire Malcolm Brogdon without costing themselves a core player," Wojnarowski tweeted. "The Pacers land another first-round pick in the deal."

Brogdon was selected by the Pacers at No. 36 overall in the second-round of the 2016 NBA Draft and was the 2017 NBA Rookie of the Year, as well as an NBA All-Rookie First Team selection during his first season, as well as a member of the 50-40-90 club in 2018-19, averaging above a 50% field goal percentage, 40% three-point field goal percentage and 90% free throw percentage.

The former University of Virginia standout averaged 19.1 points, 5.9 assists and 5.1 rebounds per game during the 2021-22 season.

The Celtics were defeated by the Golden State Warriors in Game 6 of the 2022 NBA Finals last month.

Brogdon will join a Celtics lineup that already includes All-Stars Jayson Tatum and Jaylon Brown, as well as veteran guard Marcus Smart.
