The Brooklyn Nets are officially welcoming Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Jason Terry, and Andrei Kirilenko to the team today at noon. That’s a lot of talent to add to a team that won 49 games last year and it makes the Nets a legitimate contender for a championship next season.

Thursday’s press conference begins at noon. You can watch it on the YES Network or on BrooklynNets.com, but be sure to follow this blog’s author, @RobAbruzzese, on Twitter as he will have live updates throughout the event. Once the event is over, check back here for a recap, quotes, and photos. Also be sure to follow the blog @BkEagleSports so you don’t miss any Nets news during the upcoming season.
