The Boston Celtics put together a few moves before the NBA trading deadline Thursday.

Boston acquired Isaiah Thomas from the Phoenix Suns, according to media reports, and also sent Tayshaun Prince to Detroit for forward Jonas Jerebko and guard Gigi Datome.

Thomas was one of the two members of the Suns’ point guard trio to be dealt. Phoenix also traded Goran Dragic to the Miami Heat. Phoenix acquired Cleveland’s 2016 first-round draft pick and Marcus Thornton in the Thomas deal. The pick is top 10 protected.

Thomas signed a four-year, $27 million contract with Phoenix in the offseason in a sign-and-trade deal with Sacramento.

He averaged 15.2 points and 3.7 assists coming off the bench for the Suns.

In other trades Thursday, point guards moving quickly made this trade deadline a transition game.

Besides Dragic, Michael Carter-Williams, Reggie Jackson and Brandon Knight all were dealt in the final hours that trades were allowed, as a number of teams handed their keys to different drivers.

Kevin Garnett also has a new address – his original NBA one. The Timberwolves brought him back to Minnesota by sending Thaddeus Young to Brooklyn.

There were so many players on the move in deals agreed to shortly before the 3 p.m. deadline that most of the transactions were still awaiting NBA approval hours later.

Dragic and Jackson were two players to watch on deadline day, because neither was expected to remain with his team after this season.

Both their teams opted to move them rather than risk losing them for nothing.

Phoenix sent Dragic to Miami, getting two first-round picks and a package of players for the Slovenian, a third-team All-NBA selection last season. The Suns filled his spot by acquiring Knight from Milwaukee in a three-team deal with Philadelphia, which sent Carter-Williams to the Bucks.

“I did feel it was time to find a better fit,” Dragic wrote on Twitter, adding “NOW it’s (hash)heatnation time and I’m excited to bring the Dragon’s fire to Miami!!”

Zoran Dragic, Goran’s brother, also went from Phoenix to Miami.

“We are incredibly pleased to take another step in getting the Miami Heat back to real championship prominence with the acquisition of Goran Dragic,” said the Heat president, Pat Riley. “Goran is an All-NBA player, including the Most Improved Player last season, and we felt that once he became available, we would do all that we could to acquire him.”

Jackson, who began the season replacing an injured Russell Westbrook, now will step in for the sidelined Brandon Jennings. The Oklahoma City Thunder sent Jackson to Detroit in a three-way trade that included Utah.

Even backup point guards seemed in demand, with players such as Thomas going to Boston while Ramon Sessions (Washington), Andre Miller (Sacramento), D.J. Augustin (Oklahoma City), Norris Cole (New Orleans) and Pablo Prigioni (Houston) also got new homes.

Some big guys got in on the little guys’ fun, with Enes Kanter getting his wish to leave Utah when he ended up in Oklahoma City as Kendrick Perkins’ replacement.

“It is a rare opportunity to acquire a player like Enes who will be an added dimension to our frontcourt and has his best basketball in front of him,” Thunder GM Sam Presti said.
