Analysis: Pierce, who turns 37 in October, spent 15 seasons with the Boston Celtics before being traded to the Brooklyn Nets last season. Pierce averaged a career-low 13.5 points last season in his first year with the Nets. But he is a 10-time All-Star who has gained a reputation as one of the best big-moment players in the league

The deal is for the mid-level exception, which is about $5.3 million for next season, and includes a player option in the second year of the contract.

Analysis: Pierce reached the milestone on a 3-pointer with 3:10 remaining in the first half of Brooklyn's game against Atlanta on Friday. He became the fourth active player, and second on the Nets, in the 25,000-point club.
Apr. 9 5:22 PM PT6:22 PM MT7:22 PM CT8:22 PM ET0:22 GMT8:22 5:22 PM MST7:22 PM EST4:22 UAE (+1)02:2220:22 ET7:22 PM CT23:22 - Pierce is dealing with a hip pointer.

Mar. 30 6:13 PM PT7:13 PM MT8:13 PM CT9:13 PM ET1:13 GMT9:13 6:13 PM MST8:13 PM EST5:13 UAE (+1)03:1321:13 ET8:13 PM CT0:13 - Pierce scored 22 points as the Nets moved to the brink of a postseason spot by beating the Minnesota Timberwolves 114-99 on Sunday for their franchise record-tying 13th straight home victory.
Analysis: Pierce scored 16 in the first quarter, two nights after putting up 17 in the period. Truthfully, Pierce is too old to play a solid 40 minutes these days. You may want to only use him in the first quarter, if that is possible in your fantasy league.
Mar. 25 9:58 PM PT10:58 PM MT11:58 PM CT12:58 AM ET4:58 GMT12:58 9:58 PM MST11:58 PM EST8:58 UAE05:580:58 ET10:58 PM CT3:58 - Pierce scored 24 in Tuesday's loss at New Orleans, going 4 of 11 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Pierce has scored more than 18 points just twice in his last 15 games, though he's shooting 48.1 percent from the floor in that stretch.
Mar. 9 3:57 PM PT4:57 PM MT5:57 PM CT6:57 PM ET23:57 GMT7:57 4:57 PM MST6:57 PM EST3:57 UAE (+1)00:5718:57 ET5:57 PM CT22:57 - Pierce left the Brooklyn Nets' game against the Sacramento Kings on Sunday night after suffering a sore right shoulder in the opening minutes and was ruled out for the rest of the game.
Analysis: Pierce was guarding Sacramento's Jason Thompson, who was backing him into the paint and then quickly spun around Pierce for a lay-up with 10:55 left in the opening quarter. The impact from the post-up move had Pierce clutching his shoulder and he walked off the court with a Nets trainer.
Feb. 28 9:42 PM PT10:42 PM MT11:42 PM CT12:42 AM ET5:42 GMT13:42 10:42 PM MST12:42 AM EST9:42 UAE06:420:42 ET11:42 PM CT4:42 - Pierce scored 18 points and the Brooklyn Nets rebounded from their worst loss more than 10 years by routing the slumping Denver Nuggets 112-89 on Thursday night.
Analysis: With this lopsided score, no one was going to have a big fantasy night. The Nuggets' non-competitive ways cost Nets' fantasy owners.
