Clippers' Paul Pierce: Will return for another season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierce will return to the Clippers for the 2016-17 season, Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Pierce has been mulling over his options since the start of the offseason and was recently reported as leaning towards coming back, so this news comes as little surprise. However, Pierce averaged career-lows of 6.1 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.0 assist over just 18 minutes per game this past year and likely won't see a much larger role heading into his age 38 season, meaning he should remain heavily restricted in his fantasy potential.

Clippers' Paul Pierce: Expects to make retirement decision soon
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Pierce said that he expects to reach a decision on whether or not to retire from the NBA within the next couple of weeks, Ben Bolch of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Pierce, who is under contract for two more seasons, regressed considerably in his first campaign with the Clippers in 2015-16, averaging a career-low 6.1 points on 36.3 percent shooting over 18.1 minutes per game. Since he'll turn 39 in October, it's unlikely that Pierce's production will improve much if he elects to stave off retirement, so any decision to return to the Clippers would likely be based on how the team looks from a title contention standpoint. At this stage of his career, the future Hall of Famer's biggest contributions come in the locker room as a veteran voice.

Clippers' Paul Pierce: Contemplating retirement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paul Pierce said Friday night that he's "50-50" on whether he'll retire after this season, ESPN reports.

Pierce signed a three-year, $10 million deal with the Los Angeles Clippers last summer, but he endured the worst season of his career at age 38, appearing in 68 games and shooting just 36.3 percent from the field while averaging 6.1 points per game, by far a career-low. Pierce was effective in limited minutes (26.2 per game) last season for the Wizards, but the strain of 18 NBA seasons appeared to take its toll in 2015-16, with Pierce often looking like a shell of himself. The veteran will likely take a few weeks to make a decision, but if does opt to retire, he'll walk away as the NBA's 19th all-time leading scorer while ranking fourth in career three-pointers made behind Ray Allen, Reggie Miller and Jason Terry.

Clippers' Paul Pierce: Will come off the bench Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paul Pierce will return to the bench in Friday's matchup with the Trail Blazers.

Pierce started at power forward in Game 5 versus the Trail Blacers as head coach Doc Rivers tried to find a remedy for the teams key injuries. However, the Los Angeles Clippers have opted to return to Luc Richard Mbah a Moute at the four Friday. Pierce played 21 minutes in Game 5, and should see a similar workload.

Clippers' Paul Pierce: Held scoreless in 10 minutes during Game 5 start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paul Pierce scored no points (0-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and added two rebounds and one steal over 10 minutes in Wednesday's 108-98 Game 5 loss to the Trail Blazers.

Pierce swapped into the starting five for Luc Richard Mbah a Moute at power forward as coach Doc Rivers looked to stack his top unit with more offensive-minded players in the wake of the likely season-ending injuries to Blake Griffin (quad) and Chris Paul (hand), but it didn't really result in a change in the veteran's playing time situation. The veteran ended up accruing three fouls in his 10 minutes and continued to struggle from the field, missing all his shots for the third straight game. Meanwhile, Jeff Green played 37 minutes off the bench and scored 17 points, so it looks like Green rather than Pierce will be the main beneficiary of Griffin's absence.
