Boston trying to unload Pierce's large salary
 
Quote:

The Celtics have offered Paul Pierce to the Blazers, according to a report from ESPN. It is unclear who Boston sought in return.

The Blazers are not interested due to the $32 million remaining on Pierce's contract over the next two seasons.

Portland is preserving their cap flexibility with the hopes of re-signing Nicolas Batum this offseason.

damn.... would have been nice to get Batum.

Boston should keep Pierce.

I can't see Pierce getting traded. He's been with the Celtics for 14 years.

Boston probably realizes that their door of opportunity has been shut. Sucks that they have to rebuild, but then again I never liked them. :p

Paul Pierce for Pau Gasol? :mischief:

Ha, Pierce to the Lakers, yeah right. He grew up watching the Lakers, but it just can't happen now.


Seeing Pierce gone from the Celtics would be so wierd. Like seeing Kobe leave.
