Paul Pierce and the Boston Celtics have agreed to a four-year, $61 million deal, Pierce opted out of the final year of his contract and sacrificed $21.5 million to give the Celtics room to re-sign Ray Allen and add another piece to a Boston team that came within one win of its second NBA title in three years.

Atlanta offered Johnson, a four-time All-Star, approximately $119 million over six years – nearly $27 million more than any other team could offer.
