Paul Pierce has a few days left to give the Wizards an official answer, but president Ernie Grunfeld apparently already has it.
The draft picks the Wizards made on Thursday in Kelly Oubre and Aaron White are about the future, not the 2015-16 season when they hope to at least advance to the Eastern Conference finals.
Paul Pierce starred at the University of Kansas during the 1990's. The future Hall of Famer was the Washington Wizards' starting small forward last season. He'll turn 38 before next season.
