The NBA offseason is in full swing which means that we’re going to be hearing more and more about players who are switching teams or itching to do so. One of the bigger names on the market in terms of legendary status is veteran Paul Pierce, who is now a free agent after his deal with the Nets expired.

Pierce left Boston when Doc Rivers did back in the summer of 2013 and he’s looking to get back with Rivers now that he’s a free agent and able to chase is old coach. There have been strong signals from the Nets front office that Pierce isn’t going anywhere but this all appears to be a chest beating exercise by Billy King.

According to everyone who has common sense, the worst kept secret in the NBA is that Paul Pierce wants to reunite with Doc Rivers.

This is easier said than done though, otherwise it already would have been. The Clippers need money to sign Pierce and he’s not going to play for free, regardless whether that reunites him with Rivers. The bottom line is that Pierce wants to get one last decent contract in his wallet and the Clippers need the reluctant Nets to help them out.
