Nets, Celtics Talk Trade For Paul Pierce
The Brooklyn Nets have held trade talks with the Boston Celtics on a deal for Paul Pierce, according to sources.
The Nets are offering Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks and a first round pick for Pierce.
But the Celtics reportedly want more for Pierce if they are to trade him.
"The Celtics still highly value Pierce and it wouldn't make sense to trade him for that kind of a package if they're keeping Kevin Garnett," one league source said.
The Celtics are interested in Mirza Teletovic and possibly an additional first rounder.
Pierce has spent his entire career with the Celtics, but has been mentioned in trade talks as recently as last season with the Nets as well.
