Boston Celtics Trade Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce to Brooklyn Nets For Spare Parts, Draft Picks

By Jason McIntyre

Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce are headed to Brooklyn. According to Woj, the Celtics are trading the two cornerstones of their franchise over the last five years to Brooklyn for a package of spare parts and draft picks.

That trade, as currently comprised consists of:

Brooklyn gets
Jason Terry
Kevin Garnett (he’s getting paiiiiid)
Paul Pierce

Boston gets
Gerald Wallace
Tornike Shengelia
Reggie Evans
Kris Humphries
Three future first-round picks (2014, ’16 and ’18)

The deal becomes effective July 10th.

Talk about pressing the reset button. Boston has lost its coach and two best veterans in the last week. The Celtics will be in the lottery next year, and have Brooklyn’s pick, too.
