Former Nets talk about their return to Brooklyn

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

As the Nets prepare to do battle with their trade partners of this past offseason, the Boston Celtics, several former Nets have weighed in on the trade and their feelings coming back to their former team. Tim Bontemps, of the New York Post, got these quotes from the Celtics morning shootaround.

Gerald Wallace was shocked that he was traded to Boston, noting that he had no idea the trade was going to happen.

Kris Humphries, the longest tenured Net that was involved in the trade, said how weird it was to be a visitor playing the Nets.

Keith Bogans added some comedic relief to the situation.

Stefan Bondy, of the New York Daily News, also reported some interesting details from the Nets-Celtics trade.

Brooks did have a rough sophomore campaign with the Nets following a successful rookie year in New Jersey, so it isn't a surprise to see that he requested a trade. Evans was part of the deal, but in the end, it was Brooks who was dealt.
