We've already been there and done that with the trade discussions. The same offers Philly is reportedly rejecting for AI are what we'd see for Paul. If someone comes to Danny with a great offer it should be considered but Philly's problems trying to deal Iverson show that putting P on the market would be a waste of time. And probably tick P off unnecessarily. He's been loyal and will remain loyal. Keep him.

Pierce doesn't deserve that much. 3 years, 50 million is good for him.

You have to pay him or trade him for equivalent talent, who you would also have to pay. No getting around it.


Boston has been avg 16,000 fans per season when it comes to selling out the arena. Fan support hasnt been there with Pierce. How would it suffer more without him?

Him singing for less would have very little affect on the Celtics signing a significant FA.

Ever seen a Hawks game? Plus the team had a string of sellouts at the end of the season.
