Celtics Shipping Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry to Brooklyn
After the big trade being reported yesterday, it is apparently a done deal. Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry are all bound for Brooklyn.
The deal that was in the works yesterday was at first just a possibility. Kevin Garnett has a no trade clause in his contract with Boston, that he has refused to wave in the past. Perhaps it was the fact that he would be going to Brooklyn with Paul Pierce and Jason Terry that got him to wave the deal.
Sources tell ESPN that the deal is done, and that the Brooklyn nets will get the three above mentioned players, but the Celtics might be getting the better part of this trade. While they are losing three key veterans, they get Gerald Wallace, MarShon Brooks, Kris Joseph, Keith Bogans, the expiring contract of Kris Humphries and first round draft picks in 2014, 2016 and 2018.
