Report: Celtics, Nets blockbuster involving Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce pending

The Celtics [1] and Nets have agreed to a deal that will send Kevin Garnett [2] and Paul Pierce [3] to Brooklyn, pending Garnett waiving his no-trade clause, according to Yahoo! Sports columnist Adrian Wojnarowski [4].

While both sides are pressing to finalize the trade, Garnett “doesn’t want to be pressured into a quick decision,” a source told Wojnarowski, and the NBA’s moratorium prevents any deal from becoming official until July 10.

Jason Terry [5] would reportedly join the two future Hall of Famers in going to Brooklyn.

Meanwhile, the Celtics would receive three first-round picks — in non-successive seasons from 2014-18 by rule, the report said, giving the C’s nine first-rounders over the next five seasons.

The Celtics would also assume the following salaries in order to make the deal work: Gerald Wallace [6] (3 years, $30.3 million), Kris Humphries (1 year, $12 million), Reggie Evans [7] (2 year, $3.5 million), Keith Bogans (sign-and-trade) and one more NBA minimum-wage player.

The Celtics also discussed potential Garnett and Pierce trades with the Warriors and Mavericks, according to Wojnarowski.
