ESPN Forecast ranks Paul Pierce as 4th Best Newcomer

Yesterday ESPN released a Best Newcomer 2015-2016.

Film Room: Paul Pierce Edition

The most important free agent addition of the summer for the Los Angeles Clippers was Paul Pierce so it's only appropriate he gets his own Film Room session. As we have seen in the free agency circus of 2015, thanks to DeAndre Jordan, verbal contracts aren’t exactly binding during the NBA moratorium. So, when Paul Pierce and the Los Angeles Clippers agreed to a three year deal on July 1st, it wasn’t exactly a foregone conclusion that he'd actually follow through with this. It did become binding, however, on July 10th when Pierce signed on the dotted line. As we all know, Pierce is a...
