Celtics get Richardson in trade as Mavs make salary cap move

BOSTON (AP) The Boston Celtics acquired guard Josh Richardson from Dallas on Saturday, a move that gives the Mavericks salary cap flexibility while adding young center Moses Brown.

The trade involves teams with new leaders in the front office. Brad Stevens recently became Boston's president of basketball operations after eight seasons as coach, ending Danny Ainge's 18-year run in charge of personnel.

Nico Harrison is the new general manager and president of basketball operations in Dallas after nearly two decades in which Donnie Nelson held one or both of those titles. Owner Mark Cuban fired Nelson in June, and Rick Carlisle resigned as coach a day later. Jason Kidd replaced Carlisle.
