Last night, reports circulated that the Boston Celtics and the Brooklyn Nets would be making a blockbuster trade, with Brooklyn sending Kris Humphries, Gerald Wallace, Tornike Shengelia, Reggie Evans, Keith Bogans, and 3 first round draft picks to Boston for Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Jason Terry.
However, this morning CBS Sports reported that the deal has been altered, and the Celtics will now acquire MarShon Brooks and Kris Joseph instead of rebounding machine Reggie Evans and Tornike Shengelia.
Both Brooks and Joseph were originally drafted by Boston in 2011 and 2012, respectively, but Brooks was traded to the Nets for JaJuan Johnson and Joseph was signed by the Nets last season after being released by the Celtics.
