HoopsHype Paul Pierce rumors

James also added that despite the trade that sent both Celtics packing for Brooklyn last summer, he still associates them with the C's franchise that they carried for so long. "As weird as it is seeing them in black and white, you still see green on them," he said. "You still see green on Paul. You still see green on KG. Those guys still just have championship DNA. Being able to compete against those guys in a series is the ultimate for a competitor." Celtics Blog

Pierce, 36, will be an unrestricted free agent this summer and the Nets own his Bird Rights, which allows them to offer him more money than any other team. "I think I still have something in the tank I can give a team," he added. "Maybe one or two (years) at the most." ESPN.com

But now that the Nets are headed into the offseason following Wednesday’s season-ending 96-94 loss to the Heat in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, the question will be whether they paid that price for only one year of production from the two future Hall of Famers. “I really haven’t put any thought into it,” said Pierce, who will be an unrestricted free agent this summer. “I put my whole focus into this season. This was my last year of my contract. “I’m going to sit back, talk to the family, see my options and go from there, and see what’s best not only for myself but my family.” New York Post
