Celtics-Nets Blockbuster Trade is Agreed Upon
Kevin Garnett has agreed to waive his no-trade clause, clinching an agreement on a trade that will land Paul Pierce, Garnett and Jason Terry with the Brooklyn Nets, sources close to the process told ESPN The Magazine’s Chris Broussard on Thursday night. Garnett waiving the no-trade clause was the last step to sealing the deal, sources said.
No trade between the teams can officially be consummated until July 10 — when a leaguewide moratorium on signings and trades is lifted after free agency begins Monday — but the teams made fast progress on finalizing the trade parameters.
Brooklyn has agreed to send three first-round picks (2014, ’16 and ’18) along with Kris Humphries’ expiring contract, Gerald Wallace, Kris Joseph, MarShon Brooks and a sign-and-traded Keith Bogans to the Celtics for Pierce, Garnett and Terry, a source told Broussard.
