Paul Pierce signed a non-guaranteed contract with Boston on Monday so that he can retire as a Celtic. "We're honored that Paul has chosen to retire as a Celtic. He is among the very best Celtics -- a champion on and off the court." said Celtics governor and managing partner, Wyc Grousbeck. "We congratulate Paul on his Hall of Fame career, and look forward to seeing his number raised to the rafters of TD Garden." Through 15 years with the Celtics, Pierce produced averages of 21.8 points, 6.0 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 1.4 steals per game, and he'll finish second on Boston's all-time scoring list with 24,021 points in the green and white.

Paul Pierce cleared waivers and is likely to sign a deal to retire as a Celtic. Pierce's name is all over the Celtics record book, including his ranking of second all time in total points and for points per game as a Celtic. The future Hall of Fame forward will obviously have his number retired, but the timing on that and the official signing is unknown.

Clippers waive F Paul Pierce. It's official and the Clippers have lost two Hall of Fame players today. Pierce already announced his retirement earlier this year, so this move isn't surprising at all. The Truth will end his career as the 18th highest scorer all time with his 2008 Finals MVP topping his resume.

Paul Pierce played his final NBA game on Sunday, finishing the Clippers' loss to Utah with six points on 2-of-4 shooting, one 3-pointer, three rebounds, one assist and one steal in 22 minutes. "I gave every ounce I could, each and every day," Pierce said after the game. "And I have no regrets, even to the last day." Pierce exceeded 20 minutes once during the 2016-17 regular season, but he hit that mark three times in the playoffs as coach Doc Rivers leaned on him with Blake Griffin (toe) unavailable. Pierce finishes with career averages of 19.7 points, 1.6 threes, 5.6 boards, 3.5 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.6 blocks. He was the Finals MVP during the Celtics' championship season in 2008, made the All-Star team 10 times, and is a guaranteed first-ballot Hall of Famer.

Coach Doc Rivers said Paul Pierce or Marreese Speights will start Game 6 on Friday. If Pierce does start, he has played 35 of his 58 postseason minutes next to Chris Paul. The Truth has not been very good in that small sample as far as fantasy performance goes with only a 10.5 usage rate and a 30.0 true shooting percentage, but the Clippers do have a +6.7 net rating -- also a snail's pace of 84.8. Even if Pierce does start, he's still a risky DFS play.

Paul Pierce scored two points with six rebounds and one turnover in 16 minutes off the Clippers' bench on Sunday. Pierce has been a DNP-CD more often than not this season, but he's been in the rotation for each of the past seven games. Doc Rivers might be trying to find him some rhythm with the playoffs on the horizon, but either way he's no longer a fantasy asset.
