DC Sports Bog: Paul Pierce’s arrival means the Wizards remain great at acquiring aging scorers

When the Wizards acquired Paul Pierce, I thought the team solidified its roster without handicapping itself financially or restricting future options. The Wizards limited the fallout from losing Trevor Ariza, added a veteran who won’t be afraid to shoot in crunch time, and also injected some local and national buzz. These are all very good things.

Who benefits most from Paul Pierce's exit?

Who benefits most from Paul Pierce's exit?

Mike Mazzeo gives up a two-fer Wednesday, a story on what Paul Pierce meant to the Nets and who's likely to benefit from his departure. Starting his comments in the off-season about how his hatred for the Knicks had increased to his famous "that's why they brought me here, that's why I'm here" in the playoffs, Pierce was not just a leader. One league source told NetsDaily he was "the unquestioned leader" of the team. Replacing him there will be more difficult than replacing him on the court.  Mazzeo details how each of five Nets -- Mason Plumlee, Mirza Teletovic, Andrei Kirilenko, Bojan...

Humphries will join Paul Pierce in Washington, Celtics look for sign-and-trade

I liked Humphries, he was better than I expected, and I wanted him back. But in reality he wasn't apart of the Celtics future, whatever that is really. The Wizards on the other hand have built a sound team, with Bradley Beal a year older, and Wall a year older, along with the re-signing of Gortat. The Wizards are legit with Pierce in the fold as well. The Celtics, if they help get the sign-and-trade deal done with Washington. They'll grab a trade exception from the Wizards. The Brooklyn deal that keeps on giving. CSNNEHumphries is now a Washington Wizard. He has reportedly agreed to a...

The difference a Pierce makes in Brooklyn

When you think about the Paul Pierce era in Brooklyn, you think about emotion. You think about the stunned look Pierce wore on his face during a news conference on July 18, 2013 at Barclays Center, still struggling to come to the realization that he had been traded from Boston, the place he had spent the first 15 seasons of his future Hall of Fame career. You think about Pierce fighting back tears the night he returned to TD Garden for the first time as a visitor on Jan.

Would you want Billy King's job?

Shortly after midnight Saturday, the news broke -- and it proved to be yet another stunner. The Brooklyn Nets had decided to pass on keeping unrestricted free agent Paul Pierce, and he was headed to D.C. to join on the Wizards on a two-year, $11 contract with a second-year player option. Nets fans were mostly outraged. How could they elect to let Pierce walk at that price? No sign-and-trade deal? Nothing? Hadn’t they surrendered three unprotected first-round picks (2014, 2016, 2018) along with a potential first-round pick swap (2017) to acquire him just a season ago?

Reid: Paul Pierce signing is further evidence of Washington Wizards’ progress

For anyone seeking additional proof that the Washington Wizards are sprinting in the right direction, look no further than Saturday’s surprising acquisition of swingman Paul “The Truth” Pierce. After losing wing forward Trevor Ariza to the Houston Rockets earlier in the day, the Wizards quickly rebounded by signing a future Hall of Famer who perfectly fits their short- and long-term plans.

Why Paul Pierce is a better fit for the Wizards than Trevor Ariza

The Washington Wizards wasted no time replacing Trevor Ariza, signing Paul Pierce to a two-year, $10 million deal. Pierce, who turns 37 next season, is nearly eight years older than Ariza and nearing the end of his career. Despite his age, signing Pierce is a savvier move than keeping Ariza, who signed a four-year, $32 million contract with the Houston Rockets. The Wizards received an $8.5 million trade exception from the Rockets as part of the deal. Read full article >>
