    Pierce/Garnet to Brooklyn Nets

    The Brooklyn Nets have reached an agreement in principle with the Boston Celtics to acquire future Hall of Famers Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce after Garnett agreed to waive his no-trade clause, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

    Garnett waived his no-trade clause after the Nets agreed to fully guarantee the $12 million owed him for the 2014-15 season, the third year of his contract. Prior to the agreement, the Nets could have bought out Garnett for $6 million.

    The Nets have discussed a possible deal to land Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. (USA Today Sports)

    Garnett also was swayed by the chance to join his close friend, Pierce, in Brooklyn where they could play for longtime rival Jason Kidd.

    The trade can't be made official by the NBA until July 10.

    The trade comes with a heavy cost for the Nets: They face a luxury-tax bill of nearly $80 million. Their payroll will be close to $100 million.

    The deal centers around a package that sends Gerald Wallace, Kris Joseph, the expiring deal of Kris Humphries and three future first-round picks (2014, '16 and '18) to the Celtics, sources told Y! Sports. The 2014 pick will either be Brooklyn's or Atlanta's because the Hawks have the right to swap the pick with the Nets as part of last summer's Joe Johnson trade; the Celtics will get the worst of the two selections. The Celtics also will have the right to trade first-round picks with the Nets in 2017 if the Nets have the higher pick

    NBA Finals?????
    KNOCKING on the door????
    dude i swear NY fans over hype everything. This move sounds like the KNICKS blue print. Bring in some ole washed up players with high salary, give away a shit load of draft picks, go way over the salary crap and revel in mediocrity for many years. Talking about going to the champion ship.....

    I think it is more than that, trying to establish the brand.

    So, now Brooklyn NETS fans can feel like they are a REAL NBA Team...and, no longer NBDL expansion team.

    This would be a championship level move....in 2008.
    This is similar to Pippen and Barkley joining Hakeem, but not as good. Nets will win 55 games and lose to the heat or Bulls. The only thing this move did was lose season tickets for the celtics and make the road for Miami or Chicago slightly more difficult.

    i was saying that is the mentality they have from the moves they making... Firing a wining coach cause they didnt make it past the bulls, bringing in some old men... i didnt say i think they are knocking on the doors to the finals.. i said they think they are.. bringing old guys like that is something you do when you are already there and you lookin for a few key puzzle pieces, like Miami and Ray Allen... not when you are a 5th seed team or whatever seed they are
