Why Paul Pierce Chose The Washington Wizards

This time, though, it was his own decision to join the Washington Wizards. The reasons behind Pierce’s decision to depart from Brooklyn may be obvious.

Randy Wittman and Ernie Grunfeld describe Paul Pierce's leadership (and much more)

The Wizards' head coach and general manager raved about their new small forward in their season-opening press conference. WASHINGTON -- Randy Wittman and Ernie Grunfeld were in high spirits for the first press conference of the 2014-2015 season for one big reason: new Wizard Paul Pierce. When asked about the veteran small forward, both were effusive in their praise for his ability, versatility and professionalism.

Nets GM says team 'moved on' from Paul Pierce after negotiation impasse

In his first comments since Paul Pierce came to the Wizards, Brooklyn Nets GM Billy King suggested they gave up their pursuit early in the process. There was a lot of surprise this offseason (and rightfully so) when Paul Pierce decided to leave the Brooklyn Nets and take his talents to the Potomac River. It's not everyday that a Finals MVP opts to come to the Wizards. And it's also not everyday that star-studded and financially-ballooned Nets lose one of their stars. In his first comments about Pierce's departure, Nets' General Manager Billy King gave some insight into the decision to let...
