Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce Brooklyn Bound?

by Gabriel Llanes

The Boston Celtics and Brooklyn Nets seemed to have agreed to a deal that will send Power Forward Kevin Garnett (who had a No Trade Clause in his contract in which he has agreed to waive), Shooting Guard Jason Terry, and Small Forward Paul Pierce to the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for Small Forward Gerald Wallace, Small Forward Keith Bogans, Power Forward Reggie Evans, Power Forward Kris Humphries, Small Forward Tornike Shengelia, and their 1st round draft picks in 2014, 2016, and 2018.

This trade isn’t official until July 10th. This is the 2nd out of 4 trades in a 2 week span.
The 1st trade was when the Celtics traded their head coach Doc Rivers to the Clippers for a 1st round draft pick in 2015. The 3rd and 4th trades came during the NBA Draft when the Celtics first traded the draft rights to their 16th overall pick Brazilian Center Lucas Nogueira to the Dallas Mavericks for the draft rights to their 13th overall pick Gonzaga Center Kelly Olynyk and for two future 2nd round draft picks.

Also in the Draft the Indiana Pacers traded their 53rd pick to the Celtics in exchange for cash considerations and used that pick to draft Colorado State Center Colton Iverson.

Celtics fans agree that they are sad to see KG and Pierce go, but some can agree that we got the best deal we could when it comes to reliving cap space for signing big name free agents this year and beyond, and beginning the rebuilding process.
