They'll be a threat to the Heat if those guys can all stay healthy.  I'm not sure I could route for them over the Heat because I hate KG with a passion.

Any word on protections?

 

Not yet, CBS Sports said they would work out the protections when they can make the trade official.

Ok, good win now move for Brooklyn if the '16 and '18 picks have some kind of protection.

No doubt...

 

On paper, they may be the best team in the NBA.

I guess with the way Terry has played as of late, you could say depth is an issue. But you can always add somebody if you don't care about the luxury tax and Prokhorov clearly doesn't.

I think Boston also has the chance to swap 1st rounders in 15 or 17

in 2017

 

 

I really don't like this trade for either team, but it's a deal both teams felt like they had to make. 

 

The Celtics felt compelled to give Garnett and Pierce one last chance, while the Nets are in definite "win-now" mode. 

 

 

Lots of things would have to go right for the Nets to win a title.

Honestly, if I'm Brooklyn, I'm calling up C.J. Leslie's agent as soon as I can and bringing him in on a minimum deal.  At this point, they need youth and athleticism off the bench.  C.J. can bring that and the veteran presence there can keep his attitude in check.  No reason not to give him a look in the summer league.

 

From the Celtics side, I don't really get this and there's no way the league can say this was a better deal for them than sending KG to the Clippers for DeAndre Jordan.  The picks are all crapshots and Crash's contract is terrible.

Crash's contract is bad but that's why they sent Terry to balance it out.

 

I'm hoping Crash rebounds a bit without playing with so many stars.

CJ signed with the NYK late last night

Wiggins wont go to us because we're a small market team (maybe the smallest fanbase right now) and the people who run the NBA are scum.

 

Fact.

There is talks that MarShon Brooks might be switched out for Reggie Evans in the trade.
