Ainge calls the Blazers about a proposed Paul Pierce trade

Share This

Paul Pierce bleeds green more than any other member of the current Boston Celtics roster.

Celtics President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge has proposed dealing Pierce to the Portland TrailBlazers. However, the TrailBlazers are not willing to bite on the proposed offer right now.

In addition, it is not known who the Celtics asked for in return for Pierce.

The Blazers are not willing to eat the $32 million left on Pierce’s contract. He is signed for the next two seasons.

The Blazers would like to keep their current cap flexibility and additional cap space once Jamal Crawford is dealt in the coming hours. The team would like to use the cap space to re-sign Nicolas Batum.
