Expect Pierce to play a bit part role with limited minutes, just as he did last season. The 38-year-old played just over 18 minutes per game in 2015-16, contributing 6.1 points per game to the Clippers’ cause.
Pierce had said he was torn on returning for another year despite having two more seasons to go on his $10.5 million contract. Perhaps the finances played a role in his decision to return, or perhaps he wants to be around to let Kevin Durant hear it on the court straight from his mouth.
