Nets free agent Paul Pierce said he wants to play at least two more seasons.
And it seems as if he wants those two final seasons to come with the Clippers and not the Nets, but Brooklyn's asking price for a sign-and-trade may be a bit much. The Nets are reportedly wanting either J.J. Redick or 1st-round picks in exchange for Pierce, although sending off first-round picks to the Nets to get Pierce would arguably be a decent deal for the Clippers as they would hope that each pick would be one of the last two to close out the first round.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Blue Jays prospect Miguel Castro left Friday's game with a right hand issue.
Castro officially left the game with forearm tightness, which does not sound good at all. As we've seen too many times over the past couple of seasons, forearm tightness generally leads to Tommy John surgery. Castro showed a lot of promise with the Blue Jays early this season, stepping in as closer for a couple weeks, but the 20-year old struggled with command, leading to his demotion.
