LINCOLN, Mass. (AP) — Former Boston Celtics star Paul Pierce is following Kevin Garnett's lead and selling his Boston-area home.
Pierce, who along with Garnett was traded in June to the Brooklyn Nets, has put his Lincoln home on the market for almost $2.65 million.
That's a bargain compared to Garnett's former Concord home, which was put up for sale last month for $5.85 million.
The Boston Globe (http://b.globe.com/1gD3KkQ) reports that Pierce's 7,300-square-foot house has five bedrooms and bathrooms, custom cabinetry, a gourmet kitchen, and windows overlooking a large private backyard.
The listing says the "gracious, architect-designed contemporary combines sleek design with traditional attention to detail, such as the beautiful use of woods and quality craftsmanship."
The pair helped lead the Celtics to the 2008 NBA championship.
