04:12 PM ET 06.27 | The Celtics and Nets have discussed a blockbuster trade that would send Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to Brooklyn. In return, Boston would receive a package of Gerald Wallace, Kris Humphries, Tornike Shengelia and three first-round picks. While Garnett, who has a no-trade clause in his contract, hasn't been asked to sign off on the trade, there's the belief he would. He would have the opportunity to remain with Pierce and work under new Brooklyn coach Jason Kidd. The trade talks appear to be in the initial stages as Boston considers adding bodies to the deal. The Celtics would like to unload either contract shooting guards Jason Terry or Courtney Lee on the Nets.

PP going back to CA would have been a sweet gesture coming from the Celtics.

Can you say BROOKLYN in the HOUSE? Good for the NETS. This owner has shown a commitment to putting a quality product on the floor even if it's for the short run. Now if Joe Cool can get his act together Miami might actually have something to worry about.

But REALLY folks, you don't see the Clips making a move to acquire the dynamic duo. Stay tuned you heard this one first from someone in the know. Doc will get the players he wanted out in L.A. & David Stern will be left scratching his head trying to figure out how he got out maneuvered since he stated that the Clips & Gang Green could not trade players for the next year. Mom always said, "there's more than one way to skin a cat"! Stay tuned!

It may seem so but in reality Manhattan and the Peoples Republic of Brooklyn are actually like two different countries.

That would all be true if the players acquired weren't elderly. The Nets saw how well
