Is No. 22 going to Celtics? Is that why they want it done tonight?

Ballin, plz. DO YOU EVEN DOWN LOW PRESENCE?

They just wanna have it done to move forward with drafting and free agency plans. Don't think we can throw in pick 22. Looks like it's 2014, 2016 and 2018 picks as of now

The Nets are going to be soooooo old and slow. I think this is good for them for a year, but I still would be surprised if they made it past the Bulls/Pacers/Heat.

I think KG will be good. However, I do think Pierce is clearly starting to fall off. Meh. I just don't see the point of a deal like this. Just a lateral move.

the huge part is KG. KG would be HUGE for us. A duo of KG-Bropez is so good. They compliment each other so freaking well. I love it.

it's also hilarious to me that when Kidd was last here this team was all like RUN RUN RUN FAST BREAK ******* RUN ALLEY OOPS AND ****.

and now it'd be all like: D-Will, wait for Bropez, Pierce and KG to get back down the court, plz.

The more I think about this deal, the more I am becoming ok with it. Primarily because those 1st round picks are really valuable under the new CBA. The Celtics will have 2 1st round picks in '14, '15, '16, and '18 with the '15, '16, and '18 picks from the Clippers/Nets being unprotected. Not bad for 2 old guys who probably only have another year or two in them.

It will be a good deal for the Nets this year. KG and Pierce are still good players and should be good for the locker room as well. After this year though...no guarantees.

I'm still not happy about having to eat Wallace's contract. I really hope we can find a way to flip him at some point over the next year or so.

I also offer my apologies to Dr. Gonzo.

In the mean time...

right. Because Evans' inability to cover Boozer or ability to space the floor wasn't the reason we lost to Chicago in the first round.

And I ******* LOVE Reggie Evans and almost bought his jersey but i'm too broke. So stahp.

With the way the Mavs draft went, which I'm liking,If we can sign Dwight and he knows we have the option to bring in more talent in 2014 with him being the star of the franchise instead of sharing it with Harden in Houston. I'm hyping myself up, but us being the 2 options hes debating between why not be excited.

I was just saying this to Paul, I like that gameplan. Maybe got the back court of the future this year, so Dwight plus a max next year the future looks really bright. I also like that sales pitch to D12, have no clue what his emotional ass will want the most but with Dirk at his age he'll know this will be his team if he comes here and I expect with Cuban failing last off-season he's gonna go hard as hell to bring him in.

I think it should be a sad day for Celtic fans and just NBA fans in general purely based on Paul Pierce being traded to the Nets. I understand it is all about winning for the veterans, and its a business decision for the Celtics in trying to rebuild their franchise. That being said, Pierce has been their warrior for them for so many years and did lead them to a championship. He should have been a career Celtic.

It's ******* stupid, for sure. It's not like they're getting that much for him and KG anyway. Plus they got the **** end of it in having to take on Gerald Wallace's contract.

The Celtics with KG and Pierce are better than the Nets. And with the moves the 76ers have been making, the only competition in the Atlantic would have been the Knicks. Ainge is dumb.

And why did they swap the foreign guy for Kris Joseph? Let's trade for the guy we cut!

The only saving grace is that it's probably impossible to S&T for Josh Smith now.

Can't wait to see where people stand about the new-look Nets.

We had a lot who were wisely skeptical of last year's offseason champs, and there are a lot of similarities between the two situations.........

The Hawks are gonna bring in Dwight and Rondo and re-sign Josh Smith. It's gonna happen, I swear. I've got sources.

Do the Nets get Paul Pierce's wheelchair in the trade or do they have to sign it in Free Agency?

We had a lot who were wisely skeptical of last year's offseason champs, and there are a lot of similarities between the two situations.........
From a Heat fan's POV - I see the Bulls with a healthy DRose as more of a threat rather than the Nets.

That being said, Pierce has been their warrior for them for so many years and did lead them to a championship. He should have been a career Celtic.
I disagree. Obviously it hurts to see Pierce go. He always has been and forever will be my favorite Celtic. But it was a move that needed to be made and Pierce has known that all along. It's not like we dumped him on the Bobcats. Pierce doesn't have to waste his last years in a rebuild and we put him in a situation that will likely be more competitive than if he had stayed and got future assets for it. It's mutually beneficial. Does anyone care that Hakeem finished his career in Toronto? That Montana finished a Chief? Pierce is still a career Celtic.

Pierce has already expressed interest in returning after his playing days as done in a coaching or management role. He will be welcomed back with open arms.
