Boston Celtics, Paul Pierce Reach Agreement on New Four Year Deal

July 2nd, 2010 by Todd Kaufmann Leave a reply »
Update: (8:33am CDT) According to sources, the new deal is for four years and $61 million.

Doc Rivers announced a few days ago that he would remain on the bench for the Celtics as the head coach.

The next decision for the team to make was to hammer out a deal for forward Paul Pierce to make sure that he remained a Celtic.

This morning, according to the Boston Herald , they have done just that, as the two sides have agreed on a new four-year deal. The terms of the agreement have not yet been released.

Pierce had opted out of the final year of his contract on Thursday to become an unrestricted free agent. There had been rumors that the Dallas Mavericks could make a sign-and-trade to land the Celtics forward, but now with a new deal in place, that rumor can be put to rest.

Now, the last free agent to take care of would be Ray Allen who remains on the free agent market.
