Paul Pierce signs contract to retire with the Boston Celtics

Rich Kane  Icon Sportswire

Pierce, a 10-time NBA All-Star, spent the first 15 years of his career with Boston, winning a title in 2008.

Having had an illustrious 19-year career, "The Truth" will hang them up in front of his beloved TD Garden, where fans were witnesses to many game-winners and inspired championship-caliber performances by the Oakland native. "He is among the very best Celtics - a champion on and off the court", said Celtics managing partner Wyc Grousbeck.

Ironically, it was the trade of Paul Pierce, along with Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry, that led to the Celtics current treasure of assets.

"It's an honour to have this opportunity to once again call myself a Boston Celtic", Pierce said. The organization as well as the city took him in and made him one of their own, Pierce added in the release. "I'm a Celtic for life". After losing convincingly in the Eastern Conference Finals last season, it seems like the Celtics front office decided it is time to go "all in". He then spent a season with the Washington Wizards before playing the last two years of his career with the Los Angeles Clippers. He averaged 21.8 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 3.9 assists in the green and white.

Pierce is the second all-time leading scorer in Celtics history with 24,021 career points. He began working for ESPN as part of the network's NBA Finals coverage, and Sports Illustrated's Richard Deitsch reported in June that ESPN was interested in hiring Pierce full-time beginning with the 2017-18 season.
