BREAKING: Kevin Garnett will waive his no-trade clause, clearing Nets & Celtics blockbuster trade

Posted on: June 27th, 2013 by Devin Kharpertian Comments

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports:

That was reportedly the last obstacle standing in the way of the trade, in which the Brooklyn Nets will send Kris Humphries, Gerald Wallace, a signed-and-traded Keith Bogans, MarShon Brooks, Kris Joseph, three first-round picks (2014, 2016, 2018), and the right to swap picks in 2017 to the Boston Celtics for Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Jason Terry. Reggie Evans was originally in the deal, but has been switched out for MarShon Brooks, according to various reports.

The deal will become official on July 10th after the July moratorium.

Wojnarowski adds that the Nets have agreed to fully guarantee Garnett's $12 million in 2014-15. Garnett's contract was only guaranteed for $6 million for the 2014-15 season.

    I think this trade is completely rediculous and I am a Heat fan.Why would the Nets give away a handful of players and three draft picks for three antique players with not much value to a division rival?!By the time those three draft picks get drafted,Garnett,Pierce,and Terry will be getting ready to retire.Obviously the Nets don’t care about the future.

      foclpnt If you’re a HEAT fan you’re probably just that and know nothing about Wallace sucking balls and being overpaid and having the longest contract of all the players in the trade.  The others were spare pieces.  The picks will be in the 20s.
      The Nets turned Evans into Garnett.  Bogans into Terry.  Wallace into Pierce.  Humphries into Plumlee.  What’s not to like?  The team has a short 1-2 year window with KG and Pierce but everyone involved knows that.  When they retire….we spend some more! Proky dont care!

      foclpnt The future is free agency.  Lopez and DWill will remain.  Nobody outside the lottery that has any star is looking for another star in the draft.  If you’re a good team, relying on the draft is useless.  KG and Pierce both come off the books faster than Wallace’s idiotic contract would have, setting the Nets up for a free agent bonanza that will include Lebron and Wade.

    Why are we giving up Marshon and keeping Evans?
