Pierce Signs Deal to Retire As ‘A Celtic for Life’ – The Boston Celtics signed Paul Pierce on Monday so that he could retire as a member of the organization. Pierce, a 10-time NBA All-Star, spent the first 15 years of his career with Boston, winning a title in 2008. In announcing Pierce’s retirement, co-owner Wyc Grousbeck said Pierce’s No. 34 will soon hang in the rafters at TD Garden. “We’re honored that Paul has chosen to retire as a Celtic. He is among the very best Celtics — a champion on and off the court,” Grousbeck said in a release. “We congratulate Paul on a Hall of Fame career, and look forward to seeing his number raised to the rafters of TD Garden.”
