Pierce Nearly Dealt To Mavericks In Three-Team Josh Smith Trade
The Boston Celtics were as close to trading Paul Pierce had they ever been last February with a three-team trade that would have seen him dealt to the Dallas Mavericks, according to sources.
The Celtics would have acquired Josh Smith.
The Mavericks would have sent Brandan Wright, Jae Crowder and Dahntay Jones to the Hawks, while also swapping first roudners in the 2013 NBA Draft.
The Hawks also sought a first round pick fro the Celtics.
