Ever since Doc Rivers became the head coach of the Los Angeles Cliplers, there has been rumors every offseason that Paul Pierce would join the team.
After the heartbreaking loss Pierce and the Wizards suffered a few weeks ago this season there was speculation that he’d retire. However, reporte are surfacing again that Pierce could be headed to the Clippers.
The chances of The Truth finishing his career back home are higher now than ever.
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.
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.
