Pierce to retire in Greece?

Paul Pierce gave an interview to greek newspaper Eleftheros Tipos and he said there that the prospect of ending his career in Greece is a thought that occured to him.

Pierce said that he has considered the possibility of playing in Greece when his contract ends with the Boston Celtics. He said there are quite a few greek people in Boston and also in the staff of the team and that he is really fond of Greece and travelling. If there is an offer from Greece he will consider it very seriously and he joked saying that if they don't want him there he will go somewhere else in Europe.

The Boston Celtics will be on the top of his priorities when it comes to renewing his contract but he said that he won't examine any possible offers from Greece or the rest of Europe.
