Nets' Paul Pierce open to moving to PF


The Brooklyn Nets got a big road win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday. They went with a small line-up that is currently 2-0 and saw Paul Pierce move to power forward. Pierce said he’d be open to staying there if they wanted to keep the line-up.

From the New York Post:

“Maybe what you saw was going to be the future lineup,” Pierce said after scoring 18 points against the Thunder. “Maybe it’s going to be me playing the four [and] we spread the court.

“I told [the team], that was the second time we used that lineup and we’re 2-0 with that lineup. Maybe it’s a position change in the making for me — something that’s going to work for us, but who knows.”

Deron Williams, Shaun Livingston, Joe Johnson and Kevin Garnett rounded out the rest of the small-ball line-up. Head coach Jason Kidd still hasn’t revealed who he will start against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
