Paul Pierce has had a busy few days. Traveling to Las Vegas, playing in the World Series of Poker. Oh, and signing with the Washington Wizards on a two-year deal that makes an immediate impact on the DC lineup that lost Trevor Ariza earlier in the day to Houston.The addition of Pierce in the short term fills the void left by Ariza, and gives the Wizards another strong veteran presence in the locker room.
Marcin Gortat and John Wall already welcomed their newest teammate via Twitter, but Pierce himself took to the 140-character media site to announce his arrival to the Wizards roster in a subtle, yet direct way.
