Future hall of famer Paul Pierce will give it one last go before he retires.
Reports indicate that the forward is opting out of his contract with the Washington Wizards to reunite with his former coach Doc Rivers.
David Aldridge of NBA.com reported what he thinks is the next step for The Truth.
“Washington’s main issue is complacency.
The Wizards could stand pat if Pierce decides to return to D.C.
next season rather than opt out of his deal, but many around the league believe Pierce will do just that and finish his career back home in Los Angeles with the Clippers,” Aldridge said.
“Either way, the Wizards need a long-term solution at power forward to go with their electric backcourt of Wall and Beal and the emerging Porter, who was a terrific 3-and-D man during the playoffs and looks ready to claim the small forward spot full time,” he added.
In case he jumps ship, his presence will be missed by the up and coming Wizards team.
Randy Wittman said that they would love to have him back.
Per Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post . “I’d love him back.
I think he wants to be back.
I don’t know, I won’t put words in his mouth, but I’d be surprised if he didn’t,” Wittman said.
“I think what he saw with these guys and the heart this team has.
Why wouldn’t you want to play the end of your career with a group like that?” Should Paul Pierce decide to sign with the Los Angeles Clippers, he can add good depth to the small forward position which the Clippers are sorely missing.
