Boston and Brooklyn discussing a blockbuster deal that would send Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to Nets, league sources tell Y! Sports.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) June 27, 2013
Possible Nets package includes expiring deal of Kris Humphries, Gerald Wallace, Tomike Shenglia and three first-round picks, sources tell Y!— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) June 27, 2013
There's no indication that Garnett has yet to be consulted about waiving his no-trade clause for such a possible deal, sources tell Y!— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) June 27, 2013
Celtics, Nets couldn't potentially complete deal 'til moratorium ends July 10, source says. Teams need Pierce's 13-14 salary to make it work— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) June 27, 2013
Details are sketchy at this point and we'll keep updating as this story unfolds. One thing to keep in mind: Atlanta has the right to trade draft picks with Brooklyn in 2014 and 2015.
My initial reaction is NO, NO, NO. Wallace is owed over $30 million over the next three years and with that Hawks-pick-swapping stipulation, it's an awful deal. The biggest problem in trading with Brooklyn is that they have a collection of bad contracts and if the aim is to rebuild, priority #1 has to be shedding players who do little and get paid too much. Let's not forget that Rajon Rondo and Kris Humphries aren't exactly best buds.
It's no wonder now why Doc left. Let's all just hope that Danny is posturing here.
The Boston-Brooklyn discussions for Garnett and Pierce are serious, several team sources tell Y! "Deal could get even bigger," source says.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) June 27, 2013
The Celtics are discussing the possibility of including either guard Jason Terry or Courtney Lee in the package, sources tell Y! Sports.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) June 27, 2013
What could "bigger" mean? My guess is, Danny is making a run at Marshon Brooks who they initially drafted two years ago but traded for JaJuan Johnson, but if my CBA math is right, Billy King would have to include another player if the Celtics want to send over Terry or Lee. Reggie Evans? Tyshawn Taylor?
NBA source confirms Celtics-Nets talks and also adds #celtics are in talks with multiple clubs about deals— gary washburn (@GwashNBAGlobe) June 27, 2013
There was a rumor earlier this week about creating a TPE in order to bring in Josh Smith. Could a third or even fourth team facilitate that?
