Pierce to Retire a Celtic, Play Overseas

by August 19, 2010

In a CSN interview, P-Double says he’ll likely retire from the NBA when his four-year. $62 million deal (via Celtics Blog): “I think this is going to be it for me. After these three or four years that I’m going to play, then I think that’s going to be it for the game of basketball. I put so much into this game. As far as retiring from the NBA, I think I will be done after this contract because eventually I want to go overseas and play and live for a couple of years. That’s why this is a big contract for me, knowing I’m going to retire a Boston Celtic. I want to go to either Italy or Greece for a year. I think I want to be able to bring my family over to just kind of share a different experience overseas for a couple of years, before I settle into retirement.”
