The Celtics signed Paul Pierce so he could retire with his original team:

He showed up at his old haunt, the Boston Celtics practice facility in Waltham, Massachusetts, wearing a throwback Inglewood T-shirt and a pair of Brooklyn Nets basketball shorts.
"Hey Danny, see this?'' said Paul Pierce, tugging at the silver and black of the Nets. "This is where you sent me!"
Suffice to say, all is forgiven. Pierce followed Boston president of basketball operations Danny Ainge into his office, pulled on a Celtics green T-shirt and signed a one-day contract with the team that drafted him 19 seasons earlier. Then, once the paperwork was completed, Pierce officially retired.
"Like I said from the beginning,'' Pierce told ESPN on Monday night, "I always wanted to retire as a Celtic. We did it quietly. No need to make a spectacle out of it.''

Speaking TRUTH. Yes, pun intended.

Green's a putz and a tired, played-out act.
