Celtics: Garnett, Pierce likely gone in blockbuster trade with Brooklyn

NBA: Saying goodbye to The Truth
BY JIMMY GOLEN

BOSTON -- Letting Doc Rivers go to the Los Angeles Clippers was the first sign. Getting rid of Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett clinched it.

The Boston Celtics are rebuilding.

The Celtics have agreed to the terms of a deal that would send the two remaining members of the Big Three that won the 2008 NBA title to the Brooklyn Nets for a package of draft picks and players.
