The Indiana Pacers are trading guard Malcolm Brogdon to the Boston Celtics, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

The Celtics are sending Daniel Theis, Aaron Nesmith, Nik Stauskas, Malik Fitts, Juwan Morgan, and a 2023 first-round pick.

The 29-year-old Brogdon is coming off his sixth NBA season after being drafted in the second round out of Virginia by the Milwaukee Bucks in 2016. Earning Rookie of the Year honors in the 2016-17 season, he averaged 12.8 points a game in three seasons with the Bucks before he was traded to the Pacers.
