Nets trumpet arrival of Pierce, KG


The Brooklyn Nets were quick to welcome Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry, whom they acquired in a trade with the Celtics, into the fold after the deal became official on Friday.

The Nets’ website featured a introduction screen (above) with an image of the three in Nets uniforms, with Pierce wearing his usual 34, Garnett wearing No. 2, and Terry No. 31.

“Today, the basketball gods smiled on the Nets,” said Nets principal owner Mikhail Prokhorov. “With the arrival of Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, we have achieved a great balance on our roster between veteran stars and young talents. This team will be dazzling to watch, and tough to compete against.”
