Nets-Celtics Complete Blockbuster Trade
(NEW YORK) -- A monster trade is official between the Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics. The Celtics are sending All-Star Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry to Brooklyn for three first-round picks (2014, '16 and '18), Kris Humphries, Gerald Wallace, Kris Joseph, Reggie Evans, and a sign-and-traded pick Keith Bogans, reports ESPN NBA insider Chris Broussard.
Garnett wavied his no-trade clause contract in order for the deal to work out.
Pierce has a team option for $15.3 million that would have to be picked up by July in order for the deal to be complete by July 10.
Brooklyn now has an expected starting five of Deron Williams, Brook Lopez, Joe Johnson, Pierce, and Garnett.
The Nets hired former All-Star Jason Kidd as their head coach this offseason.
