i would take him but i wouldnt give him max...he is too old for the max. And he showed he is losing his intensity due to disappearing in the playoffs for a bunch of games. I mean its not all artest's d that made pierce disapper. But he has proven he can star at SF in the NBA and i think he would def be able to compete for a couple more years so i dont htink we can do more than a 3 or 4 year deal for him.

But other than that, i dont see him leaving celts. They all were 1 game away from getting another ring. I dont think allen goes anywhere and neither does pierce.

And you can say the same thing about Joe Johnson that it is his home town as a reason y he would come here.

i wouldnt mind giving pierce money to come here, but only for a limited number of years. hes getting up there in age, and tbh i really dont like the guy, but hes a leader and would be a good fit at the 3. when he walks, aminu might be ready to take over.

i love jj, but the more i think about it, the more i feel like he'd be playing too out of position at the three spot. id still welcome him, though.

This isn't even a rumor, it's just a guy thinking out loud...

Ahh, I'll pass on pierce. I don't want any of his B.S. fake revivals coming off a wheelchair...lets save that for some crappy sunday morning T.V. revolving around that popular figure...what was his name? Jebus?

I was a strong advocator of this. I honestly think that would be a championship team in two or three years.

If we signed Lebron James July 1st we wouldn't have a championship team, what makes you think Pierce would make a difference. Lebron couldn't win it all with the best team of the regular season. I won't even acknowledge this thread anymore, we're not even thinking about getting him.

lol yeah I was like where is that quote coming from? Pierce is a great player and we would certainly love to have him, but for now I don't think it's even a rumor.

because he came within one quarter of winning it with Boston. Our roster is better than Boston's IMO. Give the team one or two years to gel, it's all theirs

Pierce is a leader would be a good signing for the Clippers and help our young core develop and by the time theyre ready to take over he will up and retire and we can replace him with a stud free agent...but yeah wont happen.

Paul Pierce is 32years old. You guys want to make a guy that old our free agent signing this summer? If you're the Lakers, Orlando, Dallas, ect...One of the existing veteran teams, Paul Pierce might put you over the top. Right now though for the Clips, I don't see how signing Pierce fits into this team.

IMO, you don't bring a guy that old and expect him to blend with a nucleus that can barely get into a bar yet. Seems to me it would be awkward and counter productive for our growth.

Pierce? are you serious? I am having flashbacks of trading for Dominique Wilkins when he was way past his prime.

Or he could provide veteran guidance and leadership for a young team without a voice. Beside I don't see how clutch shooting and a 40% 3FG could possibly hurt us. He doesn't dunk or drive as often as he used to but shooting doesn't decline with age. Also I'd much rather give him 12 or 13 million instead of 15 million for Rudy Gay. Gay has an inconsistent outside shot and that isn't what we need from our starting SF.

My head will explode if we get Paul Pierce.... The Truth is old news now... its like JUST finding out cigarettes are bad for you.

Ray Allen is going to be one of these 5.5mil midlevel mercenaries. He'll wait until all the big guys are signed and then he'll go to the best team he can and come off the bench as the 6th man. Ray Allen goes to Lakers, Mavs, Orlando, Bulls with Bron, San Antonio, maybe Denver...

Teams like the Clips, OKC, Sacramento, even Portland...all the young teams looking to build for the future are not going to be considered by Ray.

Ray Allen and Paul Pierce will stay in Boston next year.

They big big man problems with Sheed retiring and Perkins having a possible season long injury and KG breaaking down.
