Found February 21, 2013 on Celtics Life:
Should Pierce get traded, the 27 point comeback vs. the Nets in 2002 will always be my favorite Truth moment Accoring to Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated, the Celtics are shopping Captain Paul Pierce, but a move remains unlikely because of what they are looking for. Boston shopping Pierce, but not just looking to offload him. Asking for expiring contracts and draft picks. Move unlikely at that price — Chris Mannix (@ChrisMannixSI) February 21, 2013 With the Clippers apparently re-considering a potential deal for Kevin Garnett, it makes sense that the Celtics are keeping tabs on the market for Pierce. After all, KG will only waive his no trade clause if Pierce has already been traded, so perhaps Danny Ainge is trying to set up a few potential deals for Pierce in case the Clippers put the Eric Bledsoe and DeAndre Jordan offer back on the table. Or perhaps the Celtics will be exactly the same team at 3pm. As always, stay tuned. FOR THE LATEST TRADE BUZZ,  CLICK HERE Follow...

Report: Celtics offered Pierce to Nets at deadline in exchange for 3 players & 2 Picks - Nets declined

When the Celtics take the floor tonight in Phoenix, Paul Pierce will be announced as their starting small forward, much like he has nearly every game for the past 15 seasons. However, if Fred Kerber of the New York Post is to be believed, Danny Ainge called the Nets yesterday and made them an offer for Pierce, only to be rebuffed.

Your Morning Dump… Where the trade rumors haven’t infiltrated the Celtics

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. I didn’t even think about that,” said Pierce, more amused than nostalgic. “I don’t even know the latest [rumors].” Pierce, always one of the more informed players when it comes to NBA news and scuttlebutt...

Nuggets vs Celtics - Round Two

Last time these teams met, KG and Pierce's clutch shots helped the C's to a victory. Though the trade deadline hoopla is the current hot topic of the NBA, there is still games to be played. Tonight the Boston Celtics and Denver Nuggets meet in the mile-high city for their second and final meeting this season. The last time these teams met, they were holding the longest...

Celtics-Lakers Live: Paul Pierce, Celts Try to Get Back on Winning Track Against Old Rival in Los Angeles

8 a.m. ET: The return to games that matter is testing the Celtics. Coming off a pre-All-Star break run of eight wins in nine games, the Celtics face a West Coast back-to-back that threatens to expose their lack of depth. The Celtics (28-25) ran out of energy in Tuesday’s track meet in Denver, and after a quick turnaround they take on the mercurial Lakers (25-29). Kobe Bryant...

Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett Will Not Look Back Fondly on Final Game as Celtics If Dealt at Trade Deadline

This was a tough way to go out. If the Celtics somehow trade away Paul Pierce or Kevin Garnett prior to Thursday’s trade deadline, their final game in green will not be a fond memory. The Celtics’ underwhelming effort in Los Angeles on Wednesday was indicative of all their troubles without a lead guard like Rajon Rondo or a willing garbage man like Jared Sullinger. The 113-99...

Comments from the Other Side - Nuggets 2/19

The Celtics hung with the Nuggets in spite of the thin air, being short handed, and taking 20 fewer free throws.   I love all the comments about the number of Celtics fans at the game.  My favorite comments though is the series where one fan wonders if they can ever get a call and another says the officiating is fixed and a third reminds them that the Nuggets had 28 free throws...

Recap: Anyone still awake?

You knew that the Lakers and their fans would be emotional tonight, and that L.A. would feed off of it, but the Celtics showed little resistance. Call it “tired legs”, second night of a back-to-back, blah blah. Boston just did not play defense tonight. Period. They fall 113-99 on L.A. As Doc told his troops at halftime, “they’re getting whatever they want..” Couldn’t...

Report: Boston Celtics Acquire Jordan Crawford From Washington Wizards

It’s not a trade involving Kevin Garnett or Paul Pierce, but it’s still worth talking. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo!
