Paul Pierce to the Los Angeles Clippers?

Published on July 3, 2014 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

The Brooklyn Nets just traded away their coach, now they are also looking to trade away Paul Pierce. The likely traded partner is the Los Angeles Clippers.

Although not the same player he once was this would be a great trade for the Clippers. They need that player in the lockeroom who has won before.

According to ESPN Los Angeles it would make more sense for the Nets to trade Pierce.

And while the Clippers could simply sign him as a free agent using their mid-level exception at $5.3 million, the Clippers are interested in sign-and-trade scenarios that would allow Brooklyn to get something in return for the 10-time All-Star and because the Clippers already have so many small forwards.

Because Brooklyn holds his Bird rights, a sign-and-trade would also allow Pierce — who made $15.3 million last season — to sign for more than the mid-level.

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.
