Report: Kevin Garnett Holds Key To Blockbuster Nets & Celtics Trade


Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the Boston Celtics are nearly done finalizing a deal that would send Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry to the Brooklyn Nets for Gerald Wallace, Tornike Shengelia, the expiring contract of Kris Humphries and three future first-round picks (2014, ’16 and ’18), according to sources.

The deal is pending Kevin Garnett waiving his no-trade clause. The Celtics think that sending Garnett along with Paul Pierce to a contender in a large market could convince Garnett to waive the no-trade clause, sources said.

The hope is Garnett would enjoy the chance to play with his close friend Pierce in a big city market.

The trade couldn’t be made official until July, 10.

The Nets would also send the Celtics Reggie Evans and do a sign-and-trade involving Keith Bogans and one more minimum-level player as part of package Yahoo reported.

  • Billy King is a hack.
    Will probably acquire Anton Barrels next.
