Paul Pierce Plans To Play This Season

Paul Pierce is planning to put off retirement and play for the Clippers during the 2016/17 season, multiple sources tell Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Daily News. Woike notes that Pierce has been conflicted with his decision all summer and cautions that another change is possible.

Pierce signed a three-year deal worth roughly $10MM last offseason. It was never his intention to play the entire deal out in Los Angeles.“I don’t have much basketball left — whether it’ll be this year or another year. To come home and play in front of family and friends and possibly win a championship, it’s like a dream come true,” Pierce said last year. “If we win this year, win a championship, I’ll probably be done with basketball to be honest.”

He struggled to make a major impact during his first year in Los Angeles, averaging just 6.1 points per game. The veteran said he didn’t want to make an emotional decision after the Clippers lost in the first round to the Blazers, but added at the time that “every heartbreak makes you want to come back.”
