While Pierce has received introductory inquiries from
"a few" other teams, Boston is the only team he's currently engaged
with, sources told ESPN.com.
…..Multiple sources with knowledge of the team's thinking told ESPN.com on
Wednesday that the team believes it will secure a verbal agreement from
Pierce before July 8, which is the first day players and teams can
execute new contracts.
Doc's back, so Pierce will come back. It's not THAT simple… but it's a huge reason.
