Kris Joseph Shipping Back To Boston In KG/Pierce Deal With Nets

Everyone else is going nuts about Kevin Garnett & Paul Pierce in Brooklyn, but what about KrisJo headed back to Boston??? Anyone?

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

While the rest of the NBA world is in shock over the trade between the Boston Celtics and Brooklyn Nets that's sending Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to NYC, Syracuse Orange fans are the only ones who'll appreciate a throw-in aspect of the deal. That throw-in aspect is Kris Joseph, who will return to the franchise that drafted him as part of the package.

Joseph was basically the last guy on the Nets bench so he was in danger of not making the roster next season either way. He's in the midst of a two-year deal that he signed at the end of the season.

Hopefully, second time's the charm in Beantown.
