Paul Pierce has spent a grand total of one season with the Brooklyn Nets following his monster trade from the Boston Celtics, and it looks like that could be it for him in the Big Apple.
After last nights loss to the Miami Heat in Florida, 'The Truth' and his Nets teammates crashed out of the playoffs and you could see just how Pierce and Kevin Garnett were feeling, the disappointment was slapped across their faces for the world to see.
And with the rumours that Garnett could be set to retire from the NBA at 37, the 36-year old Pierce could also be on his way out of the door and over to the Staples Center to hook up with Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and the Los Angeles Clippers.
According to ESPN's Marc Stein, if KG does call it quits then you can fully expect Pierce to bolt and head west for a reuniting with head coach Doc Rivers in California. Moving back to the Boston Celtics as a free agent to retire with the team is another option for the 10-time All-Star.
Garnett completely ignored reporters after the loss last night, but Pierce managed to put together a few sentences for the assembled press. Pierce believed that he had at least one or two years left to give to a team, but was yet to make up his mind about whether it would be with Brooklyn or not.
You can guarantee that this is only the start of the Paul Pierce rumor mill for this summer.
