    Default Nets Land Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce

    @WojYahooNBA 1m

    Kevin Garnett will agree to trade to Brooklyn and Celtics are sending KG and Paul Pierce to the Nets, league sources tell Y! Sports.

    David Aldridge ‏@daldridgetnt 3m
    Nets will send Kris Humprhies, Gerald Wallace, Keith Bogans (sign and trade), first-rounders in '14, '16, '18 to Cs for KG/Pierce.

    Jason Terry is also sent to the nets

    OH MAN, knicks in for some hurt next season

    Too many first rounders...Nets slightly lose on that deal because this team isn't guaranteeing a championship. Their starting 5 is good and strong overall but Miami is still #1.

    The Nets mortgage their future for one season of hope...why?

    High risk, high reward!

    Can't knock them for swinging for the fences but when they are eliminated from the playoffs next year this looks Isiah-esque

    Here's the thing...I'm really scared if this move is made and The Nets had a vacancy in coaching because coaches would line up for it, they could have gotten Phil to coach this team or they could have gotten Van Gundy (either) or Sloan....look Kidd will get better each year he coaches, but his players will steadily decline! Not the most ideal match..

    We also should have learned from The Lakers last year about how these great teams on paper do not always materialize!

    Remember Shaq,Kobe,Payton,Malone? underachievers and they had Phil coaching them!

    Can Pierce and Garnett stay healthy?
    How bad does this deal look if they both retire after next season?
    How passionate is Pierce after being traded for the first time in his career?
    How well do KG and Pierce respond to a rookie coach?
    Joe Johnson and Paul Pierce, really?
    Do you keep Blatche or Evans?

    I hate that this gives Nets fans some hope and I can feel the trolls patrolling our site as we speak, but really not that scared about what it produces, Knick hatin analyst will make this seem like its the best deal ever and they will be celebrated but honestly not scared to go head to head with our current lineup!

    Prediction 52-30 with a loss in 2nd round...

    Damn! Jason Kidd put together a great coaching-staff out of players during Draft-Night ....
    The Nets came to draft-night to forefill a purpose ....


    The Nets own the 2013-14 Atlantic Division Title from draft-night moves ..
    we have to make some strong offseason & regular season moves to top the Nets...

    Couldn't we have offered Amar'e (his contract better than Wallace) and three picks too? I just wonder why we couldn't even grab a high second round pick? Any chance we get Rondo?

    I think kidd is the weak link here and the fact he has to make all those pieces work. Plus lots of injury risk with that roster.... Knicks had the second seed last year and it didnt mean anything in the end. Knicks just need to focus on being playoff ready next year....

    Really? Pierce/Garnett barely worked with the team first PG in Rondo and now Brooklyn expect it to work with a me first PG in Williams? I don't know who pulled this deal, but it's probably the dumbest decision of the decade. And those three picks... another PR move.

    This has fail written all over it. The NYets will start off the season great sort of like we did and these pieces will break down toward the end of season (again sort of like we did). Y'all remember how invisible PP was in the playoffs? Well expect more of the same and prolly sooner in 2013-14. Add to that a newbie coach (no disrespect JK). I am not ready to throw the division banner to them just yet...we still got this!!!
