Report: Cavs, Bucks interested in Paul Pierce

Yesterday evening ESPN reported that the Cleveland Cavaliers and Milwaukee Bucks are both interested in acquiring Celtics veteran Paul Pierce. It is believed that if Pierce is bought out by the Celtics, he would have no interest in signing with either team. The Celtics want a 1st round pick in return for Pierce. Danny Ainge has the choice to buy out Pierce for 5 million if his option is not picked up by June 30th. If Pierce is bought out, the move would save the Celtics around $11 million.

Sources believe that the Celtics are working with Pierce to get him to a favorable destination with a chance to contend for another title. Back in Boston, Celtics GM, Danny Ainge, recently started the teams rebuilding process when he let coach Doc Rivers out of his contract to sign with the Los Angeles Clippers. The Clippers compensated the Celtics with a 2015 first round draft pick. The Celtics also have the future of Kevin Garnett, which other teams have expressed interested in acquiring, to decide. Last week a proposed DeAndre Jordan for Kevin Garnett trade fell through.

The NBA draft is set to take place this Thursday night on June 27th. The first pick belongs to the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Celtics choose 16th. This may not  just be another boring draft for Celtics fans, as two of Boston’s most beloved athletes in Garnett and Pierce, could be traded away.
