The Brooklyn Nets reportedly completed a blockbuster trade with the Boston Celtics that puts the revamped franchise back into the spotlight for the second time this off-season.

The trade will send future hall of famers Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce and sharpshooter Jason Terry as well to Brooklyn, while the Nets will ship shooting guard Keith Bogans, Gerald Wallace, Kris Joseph, MarShon Brooks, Kris Humphries and three future first-round picks to Boston, according to reports.

Although the trade has been circling the Internet from various news organizations and bloggers, no trade can be officially recognized until July 10.

The Nets first made noise this off season when they chose to replace the team’s second head coach, PJ Carlesimo, with the team’s former star player, Jason Kidd, who led the Nets to their last NBA finals appearance in 2003. The 2013-2014 season will be Kidd’s first season as a head coach.

The Brooklyn Nets will also add Duke University center Mason Plumlee, who the team drafted 22nd overall in the 2013 NBA draft last night at the Barclays Center.
