Gerald Wallace Slams Nets’ Trade Strategy



It was the seventh time the Nets faced the Celtics since the franchise-altering trade in 2013. That deal can be assessed as a failure for Brooklyn, which sacrificed three first-round picks for one player who is no longer around (Paul Pierce) and another who is a lot further past his prime than anticipated (Kevin Garnett). Gerald Wallace — the forward Brooklyn sent to Boston as part of the robust package — became the first player or executive involved to openly blast the Nets’ strategy.

“It was one of those stories of a get-rich-quick scheme. You either hit it big or you don’t,” Wallace said. “They took a gamble. It backfired.”
