Paul Pierce Reportedly Agrees To Four-Year Deal With Celtics

Paul Pierce has been with the Celtics his whole career, and it looks like it will stay that way after the two sides agreed to a new contract, the Boston Herald reports. 

The Celtics opened talks with Pierce Thursday night, and they clearly went well, because by Friday morning, it was being reported that they had reached a four-year deal, with the first three years guaranteed. Nothing can be made official until July 8, per league rules.

No financial details were made available, but Pierce will be making less than the $21.5 million he was set to earn in the 2010-11 season before opting out of his previous contract, a move he made in hopes of securing a longer deal. Looks like it worked out nicely for him.
