(NEW YORK) — Even though he’s left the Boston Celtics behind him, Brooklyn Nets forward Paul Pierce is open to coming back to the team as either a player or in the front office.
“Yeah, why not? Pierce told HoopsHype when asked if he’d play for the Celtics again. “Maybe as a player, maybe as a coach. Who knows what the future holds?”
The 36-year-old Pierce spent the first 15 seasons of his career with the Celtics, and established himself as one of the best players in franchise history, which was no easy feat.
During the off-season, Pierce was traded to the Nets along with Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry. Pierce thinks a Boston reunion is not out of the question down the line.
“I am going to still have relationships here. I’m always going to come to this city. Every year, when I’m done, I’m going to have a reason to come here,” he said.
Pierce is a likely Hall of Famer, averaging 21.4 points per game during his career.
