Birmingham, AL (WIAT)-It’s a done deal.

Gerald Wallace is headed to Boston.

The former Alabama star was part of a trade deal that sent Kris Humphries, Kris Joseph, MarShon Brooks, Keith Bogans and three first round picks to the Celtics.

In return, the Nets acquired Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Jason Terry.

The 14-year NBA vet averaged 7.7 points and 4.6 rebounds for the Nets last season.

This move to the Celtics will be the fifth for Wallace who also spent time with the Kings, Bobcats, and Trailblazers before the Nets.
