Rumor: Celtics open to trading Paul Pierce?

With the Celtics struggling to begin the 11-12 season, several teams have inquired about the availability of Paul Pierce. One Eastern Conference official said, there are “lots of calls asking if [Boston] will blow it up.”

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: They’ll listen.
 
The Boston Celtics might be open to moving Paul Pierce -if they get an appropriate offer and, most importantly, decide to tear down their Big Three and rebuild.
 
The once-mighty green-and-white are struggling and dealing Pierce’s big-ticket for a combination of young players, expiring contracts, and draft picks might be wise.
 
There’s another route, though.
 
GM Danny Ainge may instead stick with Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett, and Pierce, and rebuild the supporting cast. After all, the Celtics are Rajon Rondo’s team.

However, Ainge, in order to stand pat with his ‘Big Three’, has to believe his old heads have a final playoff run left in the tank.

And that is very much in doubt.
