ORLANDO, Fla. — The blockbuster trade between Boston and Brooklyn is official now.

So much of the focus on this deal centered around the departing trio of Celtics players Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry.

Right behind that was the fact that the C's were getting three, unprotected first-round picks in 2014, 2016 and 2018.

But what about the players from Brooklyn?

Yes, the C's are getting some actual players in return - not great ones, but players nonetheless.
