Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett are Brooklyn bound. The Nets and Celtics finalized their draft-night trade Friday, a nine-player, three-draft pick swap centered on the two aging champions who won a title in Boston in 2008.
The Scoop:The Nets also get Jason Terry and D.J. White from Boston while sending Gerald Wallace, Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks, Kris Joseph, Keith Bogans and first-round draft picks in 2014, 2016 and 2018 to the rebuilding Celtics. Boston also gets the right to swap first-round picks in 2017.
With only five games remaining, there's a good chance DJ White and Terrence Williams will see a rise in their playing time.
The Scoop: None.
