With the NBA lockout seemingly inching closer and closer to becoming a season cancellation, Paul Pierce is keeping all his options open.

At Rajon Rondo's Boston Charity Classic basketball game at Harvard University on Saturday, Pierce told Comcast SportsNet's Greg Dickerson that he's interested in playing overseas if the lockout eliminates the 2011-2012 season.

"That's definitely something that's intriguing to me," Pierce said. "Between Italy and Spain, I've visited both countries, it's something I'm definitely considering very strongly especially with the possibility of a cancellation of a season."

Several NBA stars have shown interest in playing overseas because of the lockout, including Pierce's Celtics teammate Rajon Rondo and Kobe Bryant.
