As long as the grain runs vertically on all 3 sides, it should be fine. The sides will grow front to back, and the back will grow left to right. They should not constrain each other. Growth along the length (up and down), would be negligible.

As far as connecting the sides to the back, you seem to have already cut them, so that may limit joinery options. What were you originally planning to do? Can you do a rabbet on each of the sides and fit it to a mating one on the back? Or you could dowel them together if they need to butt up like in your picture.
