17 year NBA veteran Paul Pierce is still a force to be reckoned with even at the age of 37. Spending most of his career playing in Boston, leading the team to a championship trophy alongside coach Doc Rivers, he bounced around the league in recent years. Pierce was traded to the Brooklyn Nets prior to the 2013-2014 season and then joined the Washington Wizards last year. In his time there, he averaged a career low in points and rebounds but his contributions to the team far outweighed any stat line. In the playoffs, he was the heart and soul of the Wizards franchise, leading them to the 2nd round with clutch performances.

With his Wizards contract expired, Pierce had many suitors looking for his services. Some thought he might make a return to Boston, which has a positive future with young talent on the floor and coaching end. But earlier this week, rumors began to swirl in Los Angeles, hinting that he may rejoin former coach Doc Rivers, who had previously attempted to recruit him to the Clippers last offseason. Today, it has been confirmed that Pierce has signed on to play with Lob city.

According to NBA.com’s David Aldridge, the deal is for 3 years and it is “mini-mid level for taxpaying teams.” 2 years at $3.3 Million and an option for the 3rd year. Pierce could be the missing link the Clippers have needed in their past few playoff runs that can provide much needed clutch performances when necessary. If LA can resign center DeAndre Jordan, they will definitely be a favorite to come out of the western conference next season.
