The Phoenix Suns have reached agreement on a trade to acquire Boston Celtics forward Brandan Wright, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

The Suns will send the Celtics the 2015 first-round draft pick they own from the Minnesota Timberwolves, sources told Yahoo.

The pick is protected from Nos. 1-12 in the 2015 and '16 drafts. If the Timberwolves hold onto it through both drafts, they will then instead send their 2016 and '17 second-round picks.

Wright was traded to Boston in last month's deal that sent Rajon Rondo to the Dallas Mavericks.

Wright gives the Suns one of the league's best backup power forwards/center for what could turn into only two second-round picks. The Suns, who entered Friday having won 10 of their past 12 games, also will have Wright's Bird rights should they want to re-sign him.
