It's official: Paul Pierce will play one more season -- but only one more season -- in the NBA.
The former Celtics star announced today in a video post on The Players Tribune site that he will return to the Clippers in 2016-17, then will retire at the end of the year.
"[I’ve] got one more ride left," said Pierce. "One more season. One more opportunity . . . With the Clippers, in the city where I grew up, I feel like I have that opportunity on a great team. We’re hungry. We want to win a championship."
Here’s a look at five questions heading into training camp that should be at the top of the Boston Celtics’ need-to-learn list.
