If the Celtics can't trade Paul Pierce, what the heck are they to do? It looks like they might as well keep him . . .

But not so fast. Chris Gasper of the Boston Globe and Marc Bertrand of 98.5 The Sports Hub think there's something the Celtics will be able to get for their aging veterans, including Pierce, which means it's time to start the rebuilding process.

No, that's not the most exciting course of action, but it's time to take on the inevitable, they say.
