Just a year after trading him to the Brooklyn Nets, the Boston Celtics are rumored to be interested in bringing back Paul Pierce to the TD Bank Garden.
According to Celtics beat reporter, Ben Rohrback, Celtics' President of Basketball Operations, Danny Ainge, is open to making a move for The Truth if the money is right:
"At the right price, right circumstances," Rohrback reports Ainge to have said on the possible reunion.
Pierce spent his first 15 years in the NBA with the Celtics, building up a rapport with the fans that is scarce in the modern game.
But, after winning an NBA title and scoring over 24,000 points for the team, Pierce was traded away to the Nets in 2013 alongside fellow veterans Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry as Ainge looked to reinvent the Celtics roster.
That experiment did not go exactly to plan,with the Celtics crashing to a disastrous 2013-14 campaign.
And now it looks like an unlikely reunion could be on the cards.
Pierce himself has spoken with nothing but respect when discussing his time at Boston and the bond he shares with the fanbase and it isn't beyond the realms of possibility to suggest he may be keen on finishing his career back in the city should the opportunity arise.
For now though he will be concentrating on extending the Brooklyn Nets' season as long as possible, with his current employers set to begin their playoff push this weekend.
