Celtic owner Wyc Grosbeck on final stages of Nets trade. He asked Danny Ainge how many picks Nets were offering. Two, Ainge answered. Grosbeck replied, “Great. Let’s go get a third pick.” Ainge did and called back. “Unbelievable. We got a third pick. This is great,” said Ainge.

Wait, there’s more. Grousbeck had Ainge go for a fourth pick. He got the 2017 swap. “I think these guys have deal fever — we’re going to keep going until they say no. I think they’ve been told by ownership to get the deal done.”

I guess this is why the Nets have always been the NYC area's version of the Clippers.

Just unreal. These guys were almost retired upon arrival. I wonder how long the Nets thought KG and Pierce would play?
