It's official. The Big Three Era in Boston has come to an abrupt end. Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that Kevin Garnett has agreed to waive his no-trade clause which will send him, Paul Pierce, and Jason Terry to the Brooklyn Nets. This deal has only been agreed to in principle as it cannot go through until July 10th. 

Here's the tweet from Wojnarowski:
Wojnarowski is also reporting the framework of the deal.

Celtics Receive: Gerald Wallace, Kris Humphries, Kris Joseph, Reggie Evans, Tornike Shengelia, and three future first round picks ('14, '16, '18). They will also have the right to trade first round draft picks with the Nets in 2017. (May also acquire Keith Bogans via sign-and-trade).

Nets Receive: Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Jason Terry.

As I mentioned above, the deal will not be able to officially go through until July 10th. The reason being that since Pierce's salary doesn't become guaranteed until July 1st, the two teams must wait or else the salaries won't match up. 

This is clearly a blockbuster deal that will most likely reshape the Eastern Conference. Consider the Boston Celtics in complete rebuilding mode now as Rajon Rondo becomes the only player on their current roster remaining from the 2008 championship team.
