Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce To Be Traded To Nets From Celtics In Blockbuster Trade: REPORT

The Celtics and Nets have agreed to a blockbuster trade that will send Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to Brooklyn, as first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

Wojnarowski reported earlier on Thursday that Brooklyn and Boston started discussing a potential blockbuster deal involving Garnett and Pierce. Garnett needed to waive his no-trade clause for the deal to work, per the Associated Press. During the 2013 NBA Draft, Wojnarowski tweeted that Garnett agreed to do just that.
