According to multiple reports, former Celtic Paul Pierce [1] has agreed to a two-year, $11 million deal with the Wizards [2] with an option to become a free agent after next season.

The 36-year-old replaces Trevor Ariza on the Washington roster after Ariza agreed to terms with the Rockets [3] earlier Saturday. Pierce had drawn interest from the Rockets, Dallas and the Lakers before agreeing with the Wizards.

Pierce spent one year with Brooklyn, averaging a career-low 13.5 points per game, having totaled 21.3 points per game for his career.
