Marc Spears reports:

The Celtics have dealt center Patrick O'Bryant to the Toronto Raptors for point guard Will Solomon, according to an NBA source.

Solomon, in his second NBA season, is averaging 4.9 points and 3.2 rebounds in 13.9 minutes per game in 39 games.

He is from Hartford and has played professionally in Turkey, Israel and Greece.

Earlier in the day, O'Bryant was thought to be heading to the Kings in a move to create salary cap space, but Celtics president Danny Ainge instead opted for the Solomon deal with Toronto.

The Celtics still have a roster spot open to add a free agent if they so choose.

We'll see what Danny picks up with his remaining roster spot.
