We're getting Paul Pierce via S&T. From Ramona Shelburne.

There might be some paul pierce doubters but when i was watching him play in the playoffs he got up for a dunk quicker than matt barnes or dudley and it really surprised me and he is a good finisher. He might be older but his game never relied on athleticism anyway. Its like dirk, he can still shoot the older he got and never missed a beat

If Doc can pull off a Pierce S&T while getting rid of Dudley I will name my first born Doc...even if it's a girl.

I am totally fine with getting PP and if the S&T is for dudley then we should officially close the "Doc is a bad GM" or what ever its called thread

not surprised, seems appropriate PP is going to finish his career in his hometown with his former coach

If we can pull this off for Dudley. And S&T Jamal for Deng or Ariza my offseason will look brighter,

I read in a S&T you can bring back 120% of the money you sent out which gives us a little more room.

And Ed Davis looks like he is ours right now

The Clippers would likely include some combination of Jared Dudley, Matt Barnes and last year's first-round pick Reggie Bullock, according to sources. But it's possible any trade could expand to more teams as discussions progress.

For Pierce! Deng or Ariza still options

Lets be frank he is not the big ticket free agent we all hoping for at the SF position

If he produces even half the numbers of his prime that would be great, off court he will be a positive addition to the bench and locker room with his championship experience.

True, but he can help us get rid of a lot of bums that did nothing but mostly brick shots for us, and actually have a small forward who i won't fear for when he has the ball in his hands.

I'm contint with Matt Barnes and Paul Pierce as our SF's... Thabo would be a good signing if we could get Jamal Crawford and JJ Redick for Pau Gasol lol

indeed all that, guess what I'm trying to say is getting PP does not going to make us instant contenders

I REALLY hope Jamal isn't involved in a sign and trade for Pierce. I would actually prefer doing a sign and trade for Pierce though if we could get rid of Dudley.

Same, but I would like to use crawford to trade for someone else.

Yup, specifically for Deng. I really want Deng to be our starting SF next season. If we get Pierce, then for him to be a backup for Deng.

Pierce should be good for another 1-2 years, so as long as it is a contract that understands that. He's never been a guy whose game was based on athletic ability, and he's the same age as Ginobili.

He can give another creator, a guy who can shoot the three, and his defense is actually still fine at SF. You give him 27-28 mins and he'll give you like 13-15 ppg, 4-5 rpg and 2-3 apg with 37-38% 3PT on 3-4 3PTA. I'm just wondering what kind of contract he's getting here. I'm fine with it in sign and trade because we preserve our MLE and BAE.

Arash markazi said Crawford, Barnes, Dudley, Wilcox, Bullock & maybe 1st rounder for S&T.

Id do that for a top flight free agent but not pierce. Too much for one person.

Yeah, even for Deng that is too much. We would be left with only 1 SG and 1 SF on the team.

I'm guessing Markazi meant Pierce would be traded for some combination of the above. I could see the Clippers sending Bullock and Wilcox if the Nets want to get younger.

Any trade involving barnes and/or dudley would include a 1st rounder. Any trade involving Crawford wouldn't include a 1st rounder. Maybe Wilcox or Bullock included.

What is it with Doc and these old players. PP will be 37 at the start of next season. His slashing and penetration days or pretty much gone. His on ball defense has lost more than a step and he can no longer rise to finish at the rim which will mean missed layups. Pp is a crafty player but we need a young wing player that can cause havoc out there attack bigs at the rim on slashes. Doc is a great coach he should be able control the yonger players

Seen in Espn that the Clippers have a package deal that would include Jared Dudley Matt Barnes and Reggie Bullock also looking for a third team... but trade is on hold because Clippers still I hopes to land LB Melo

Paul Pierce made 15.3 million last season with the Nets I hope to god we aren't even close to giving him that much.... the Mid Level might even be a bit to much

My opinion on teams waiting on LeBron's and Melo's decision before making moves is I think it's ridiculous. I don't want either player because we would have to give up most of our roster for it to work.

Jamal is a lot better than Pierce at this age. We could get better players in a trade involving Jamal. We don't even need to do a S&T to sign Pierce, it's just to get rid of some of our players we don't need. So why get rid of a key player for a player we prob wouldn't even need to trade for.

Exactly Doc is trying to plug in his guys while possibly shedding some cap

Pierce is ONLY worth getting for minimum or BAE at most and sure as hell not worth any trade assets. He will be 37 when the season starts! If they take Dudley or something for him fine.

Doc should be fired and banned from staples if he trades two or even one prospect for Pierce. Pierce value is at a low they either take Dudley or we move on and no picks added.

You'd rather keep a flawed roster that has never gone past the second round of the playoffs intact than get the best player in the world? Glad you're not our GM.

Read on HoopsHype the Nets weren't interested in any player the Clippers were offering for a sign and trade for Paul Pierce which had included Jared Dudley Matt Barnes and Reggie Bullock

Get a 3rd team. Maybe like New York.

LAC gets: Paul Pierce, a 2nd rounder from NYK.

NYK gets: Matt Barnes

BKN gets: Dudley, Bullock & a protected 1st rounder.

Maybe the Nets would take this deal.

That is a lot to give up for Paul Pierce. Is he such an upgrade over them. Isn't Reggie's potential worth more than that. Why not try to make the same trade for Deng or Ariza just add Jamal?

Nets don't want what we have to offer. PP would have the come via FA if he wants to play here....That's the truth (pun intended).

Great trade idea... I think you nailed in on the head but idk if I'd give up a 1st rounder and Reggie Bullock its gotta be one or the other
