The Globe's Gary Washburn has confirmed a report by Yahoo! Sports' Marc Spears that the Celtics have acquired guard/forward Courtney Lee from the Rockets in a sign-and-trade deal.
The Celtics gave up JaJuan Johnson, whom they picked in the 2011 NBA Draft.
Lee, who is 6-5, has played four seasons in the NBA with the Magic (2008-09), Nets (2009-10) and Rockets (2010-12).
Washburn will have more on the story in the Celtics blog shortly.
