Some good news for the Celts fans.
Pierce agrees to a three year extension.
Now some not so good news for the Celts fans. From the same article:
The C's are still very hot on the trail of Allen Iverson, but, according to a source yesterday, the 76ers have some other strong options in the marketplace.
The latest court ruling that Atlanta now can acquire and sign players to deals of longer than one year may have opened a key avenue for Philadelphia as far as facilitating a deal.
It was also confirmed yesterday that the Celtics already may have been able to do an Iverson deal had they not sent the No.7 pick in June's draft to Portland as part of the Sebastian Telfair trade. The Sixers were very high on Villanova guard Randy Foye, who was taken by the Trail Blazers at No.7. However, Minnesota probably would have plucked Foye at No.7 if it didn't have a deal in place with Portland or if there was a chance of Foye getting away.
