NEW YORK (AP) - Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett are ready to make the most of their new surroundings.
Traded from Boston to Brooklyn, the duo was introduced along with Jason Terry on Thursday at a news conference at Barclays Center, their new home.
Pierce says it was tough to leave Boston, where he played his entire career. He appeared dazed at times while listening to questions and answers, though added that the trade is ``sinking in and I'm liking what I feel right now.''
Garnett waved a no-trade clause to accept the move to Brooklyn, which was agreed to on draft night and became official last week. He says that while it's unfortunate they had to leave Boston, where they won a title in 2008, he believes change has to happen.
