Woj: Nets and Celtics talking trade that would bring Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to Brooklyn


According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the Nets and Celtics are discussing a deal that would send Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to Brooklyn.

The details? We don't know, but you have to imagine Kris Humphries and his $12 million in expiring, plus picks, and some young assets -- MarShon Brooks, Mirza Teletovic, Toko Shengelia, etc.?

The Celtics are in the midst of rebuilding now that Doc Rivers is in Los Angeles and the Celtics are looking to get younger.

New details:

Later, Woj noted that the deal will have to wait for the Celtics to make a decision on Pierce's contract. The Celtics have a team option on Pierce's contract for 2013-14. They must decide by Sunday whether to pay him his full $15.3 million contract or buy him out.

Chad Ford adds that none of the picks in the trade would be 2013 picks.
