Celtics captain Paul Pierce said in an interview with CSNNE that he would like to finish his playing career in Europe. Talking about the contract he signed this offseason ‘€” which will keep him in Boston for three more seasons with an option for a fourth ‘€” Pierce said he couldn’t picture himself in another NBA uniform, but he would like to see what a European jersey looks like.

“As far as retiring from the NBA, I think I will be done after this contract because eventually I want to go overseas and play and live for a couple of years,” he said. “That’s why this is a big contract for me, knowing I’m going to retire a Boston Celtic. … I want to go to either Italy or Greece for a year. I think I want to be able to bring my family over to just kind of share a different experience overseas for a couple of years before I settle into retirement.”
