Paul Pierce Preparing for Relocation?
The Celtics have the 16th pick in the June 27 draft, their highest since the Big Three Era began. And there are two major questions entering the offseason: the status of Paul Pierce and the status of Kevin Garnett.
The Celtics have to decide by June 30 whether to buy out Pierce’s contract at $5 million. Ainge said the sides have not had discussions, but an NBA source said Pierce’s family is already beginning to prepare for relocation from Boston, assuming the Celtics will execute the buyout or trade his expiring contract in the offseason.
