To Sell The Truth : Vescey Says Pierce Is Being Shopped

Posted in Basketball at 12:11 pm by

From Peter Vescey in today’s New York Post :

Agent Warren LeGarie, either representing or misrepresenting client/Celtics’ GM Chris Wallace, is telling the Blazers (and ESPN.com’s Chad Fraud, too, obviously) that Paul Pierce is available to them for the No. 3 pick in the draft and Nick Van Exel.

Boston’s Futile Lord, Danny Ainge, violently denies there’s anything to the leaked info, branding it “ridiculous.” But, of course, this is the same person who denied my story for two months that the Celtics were negotiating with the Hawks to re-acquire Antoine Walker.

Bottom line: Nothing has materialized in the way of an offer, but the draft is still two weeks away.
