The Brooklyn Nets become immediate contenders after adding Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett.

The Brooklyn Nets became a legit contender during the NBA draft Thursday night when it was announced a blockbuster deal would package Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry to Jason Kidd's club. 

The Boston Celtics will receive three future first-round picks for 2004, 2016 and 2018 in addition to Gerald Wallace, Kris Joseph and the expiring contract of Kris Humphries, per Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski

Wojnarowski added that the Nets will also send back Reggie Evans and do a sign-and-trade involving Keith Bogans. Should the Nets have a better first-round pick in 2017, the Celtics have the right to trade picks. 

The Nets give up their future, but do the Celtics really gain a fresh start? As the Celtics continue to reconstruct their roster, the Nets immediately move into a win-now mentality.

The deal has plenty of winners and losers.
