(Brooklyn, NY) -- The Brooklyn Nets are showing off their newest additions. Forwards Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce and guard Jason Terry were all formally introduced Thursday at the Barclays Center. The trio was acquired as part of a blockbuster trade with the Boston Celtics. "KG" says he took his time before deciding to waive his no-trade clause.
The Nets also got forward DJ White in the deal, but he was waived Thursday. Brooklyn gave up Gerald Wallace, Kris Humphries, Kris Joseph, MarShon Brooks, Keith Bogans and three future first-round draft picks in the trade. The 37-year-old Garnett averaged 14.8 points and 7.8 rebounds last season, the 35-year-old Pierce averaged 18.6 points and the 35-year-old Terry contributed 10.1 points per game primarily as a reserve.
