Pierce was a favorite of Doc Rivers in Boston and was brought over to the Clippers in 2015. He spent two seasons with the Los Angeles club.
Pierce had announced prior to last season that he would be retiring after the year, so it makes sense that the Clippers are now waiving him. They probably needed to do so in order to create roster space for all the players acquired from Houston in the CP3 trade.
