Nets News Update: Clippers, Nets in sign-and-trade discussions involving Paul Pierce

In a breaking Nets news update for your early Thursday morning, the Brooklyn Nets are currently engaged in sign-and-trade talks with the Los Angeles Clippers which would send Paul Pierce to the Clippers for an undisclosed return.

Here's ESPN's Ramona Shelbure with the scoop:

As of this writing, no assets have been named for the Nets to receive in exhange - however, the Clippers have been reportedly shopping NBA Sixth Man of the Year Jamal Crawford around the league, so his name could potentially come up in these negotiations.

With Jason Kidd now in Milwaukee, many have speculated about a potential shift in Pierce's desire to remain in Brooklyn. If Pierce indeed wants to survey other options, a sign-and-trade would benefit both him and the Nets going forward.

Chat Sports will have more on this breaking story as additional information is made available.
