Brooks, Joseph in package from Nets
A look at the swap as it currently stands (it cannot be consummated until after the moratorium lifts on the league's new calendar year on July 10):
If you're the Celtics, you have to like the swap. While Evans is a rebounding machine and the sort of tough guy that you'd love to have as a role player on a contending team, Boston instead gets a 24-year-old scorer (who they originally drafted for Brooklyn in a 2011 draft-night swap) who is under the team's control for three more seasons based on his rookie deal. Joseph, of course, was a second-round pick by Boston last season, but was waived before contracts went fully guaranteed in January.
