Celebrity chef offers to cook for Paul Pierce if he stays with Wizards

Friday May 29th, 2015

Paul Pierce just got another incentive to stay with the Washington Wizards nex year.

Washington, D.C.-based celebrity chef José Andrés hopped on Twitter on Thursday to try and keep the veteran on the local team by offering to cook for him one night a month if he returns.

There have been rumors that Pierce, who has the option to opt out of his current contract, may leave to reunite with his former Celtics coach Doc Rivers  and play for the Los Angeles Clippers.

If playing with John Wall and Bradley Beal is not enough of an enticement, free tapas made by a world-class chef surely must be.
