Boston trade talks at critical stage as owners review deal

Mark L. Baer-USA TODAY Sports

Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the proposed trade of future Hall of Famers Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to the Nets has now reached ownership level, the last stage before final approval. Meanwhile, a Nets insider tells NetsDaily that the talks have indeed reached a critical stage.

Meanwhile, Marc Stein reports that the Nets and Celtics hope to reach a deal tonight.

Under terms of the deal, according to various reports, the Nets would send two or three first round picks, Gerald Wallace, Kris Humphries, Reggie Evans, Keith Bogans, and possibly Toko Shengelia to Boston for Garnett, Pierce and Jason Terry.

The deal, if approved (and it appears close) would transform the Nets into an instant championship contender, the team believes, and set the Celtics on the long path of rebuilding.
