Celtics Complete Blockbuster Trade
The Boston Celtics move to rebuild the team took another big step on draft night when they traded Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett & Jason Terry to the Nets.In return Brooklyn gives the Celtics their first round picks in 2014, 2016 and 2018 along with Kris Humphries‘ expiring contract, Gerald Wallace, Tornike Shengelia, Reggie Evans and a sign-and-traded Keith Bogans.
The trade cannot be officially announced and completed because of salary cap purposes. The final piece to the trade was Garnett waiving his no-trade clause which he has done.
The Celtics also got two players in the draft getting 7 footer Kelly Olynyk form Gonzaga and trading cash to the Pacers for the rights to Colton Iverson, a 7 footer from Colorado State.
