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'm listening to Simmons right now on the radio and he doesn't seem too negative about the deal. It actually comes across as he likes it. I think one of the reasons is that he thinks this deal means less minutes for Blount.
