Initially after losing to the Atlanta Hawks last season in the NBA playoffs Washington Wizards F Paul Pierce indicated that he wasn’t sure if he’d return. According to Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post, Pierce could return.
The question is whether or not Pierce will opt in with the Wizards and seek to play at another destination like the Los Angeles Clippers.
Paul Pierce has until the end of June to decide whether he will exercise his $5.5 million player option and return for a second season with the Washington Wizards.
Pierce candidly revealed he wasn’t sure about his basketball future minutes after he heaved a last-gasp three-pointer to extend the Wizards’ season a tick of a second too late. He indicated retiring was a possibility, but a month later Pierce is set on playing next season, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.
