Earlier this offseason, Pierce alluded to the possibility of testing the waters of NBA free agency when his current contract expires. Pierce has two years left on his deal, but the last year is a team option.
Pierce could become a free agent next summer if the Celtics decide not to pay him the $15.3 million they would owe him in 2014.
It's anyone's guess as to where Pierce could end up if that happens. What's more clear, though, is which jerseys Celtics fans would hate to see emblazoned with Pierce's No. 34.
