The pot got a bit richer for the Boston Celtics on Friday. The Nets will be sending MarShon Brooks to the Celtics as part of the trade that has Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce being shipped to Brooklyn. There was some confusion over whether Brooks would or would not be involved in the deal, but Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News confirmed it. Brooks will be replacing Reggie Evans in the trade, which now reportedly has Garnett, Pierce and Jason Terry going to the Nets for Brooks, Kris Humphries, Gerald Wallace, a signed-and-traded Keith Bogans, Kris Joseph and first-round draft picks in 2014, 2016 and 2018. The Celtics can also swap first-round picks in 2017 with the Nets. Brooks was originally drafted by the Celtics with the No. 25 overall pick in 2011 before being shipped to the Nets for JaJuan Johnson and a second-round pick in 2014. Brooks averaged 12.6 points in 29.4 minutes his rookie year with 3.6 rebounds and 2.3 assists. His production tailed off in 2012-13 as he played less minutes. He wound up averaging 5.4 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.0 asssists in 12.5 minutes. Photo via Twitter/@CelticFanChat
