L.A. Clippers forward Paul Pierce announced Monday via The Players’ Tribune that he will return for his 19th season, then retire.
“This is it, my final season,” Pierce said. “It’s time to move on from the game of basketball. Just like any difficult decision, I think you’ve got to be at peace with yourself. I’m at peace with retiring, but I’ve got one more ride left. One more season. One more opportunity.”
