And that's officially the end of the Boston Celtics as we once knew them.
Brooklyn gets: C Kevin Garnett SF Paul Pierce SG Jason Terry
Boston gets: SF Gerald Wallace PF Kris Humphries PF Reggie Evans SF Keith Bogans SF Tornike Shengalia Brooklyn's 2014 1st round pick Brooklyn's 2016 1st round pick Brooklyn's 2018 1st round pick
Brooklyn can now boast a starting five of Deron Williams, Jason Terry, Joe Johnson, Paul Pierce, and Kevin Garnett. That's some top-notch stuff, but a really short window. They'd better hope they win something next year.
I think this is actually a good move. Speaking quite sincerely as someone who grew up in Indianapolis, if you can twice get the Butler Bulldogs within arm's-reach of the national championship, you can do anything.
