“I think a lot of people don’t realize that we played a lot of iso, one-on-one basketball,” Bogans said Monday at a press conference to introduce new Celtics. “Some guys were left out. I mean, if you’re style of play didn’t fit what they were doing then your game would fall off. And everybody didn’t fit the style of one-on-one basketball that we played last year, especially Kris and Gerald, the way they play, they’re hustle players.” Booth Newspapers

Kris Humphries and Rajon Rondo had a physical spat that spilled into the stands last season when Brooklyn and Boston faced off. Now, the two are set to be teammates on the Celtics. “If you look at it, it really was nothing,” Humphries said of the altercation, when he was introduced at the Celtics training facility. The Celtics acquired the forward in a massive deal with the Nets that sent Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and others to Brooklyn in exchange for several players and draft picks. “We’ll come in and obviously I’ve got to do my part to earn his respect in terms of playing hard and contributing to the team and we’ll just go from there,” Humphries said.

The last hurdle to fall was getting Garnett to sign off on his no-trade-clause. Woj also reported that the Nets sweetened the pot for KG, agreeing to guarantee Garnett's full $12 million salary in 2014-15, which could have been bought out for $6 million. The Nets will trade Kris Humphries, Gerald Wallace, Reggie Evans, Keith Bogans (via sign-and-trade), Kris Joseph and draft picks in 2014, 2016, 2018. The Celtics will also send Jason Terry in the exchange, although one league source said the Nets may try to move Terry to a third team. Earlier reports had Tornike Shegelia going to Boston, but Joseph's contract is only partially guaranteed this year, while Shengelia's is fully guaranteed, potentially saving the Celtics $700,000.
