RandBall: Thoughts from Boston on the Kevin Love-to-Celtics talk

If you didn't get enough Kevin Love speculation during his weekend jaunt to Boston, here is some more fodder from the Boston Globe's Chad Finn.
The most interesting theory/item to us is No. 4:
I believe Paul Pierce will retire as a member of the Celtics, and not on one of those faux-sentimental one-day contracts that equate to the gold watch nowadays.
He'll play for them again, and given that Love's agent is also his agent, it would not surprise me at all if he's your moderate-salaried sixth man who adds a welcome back-to-the-future element to next season's revamped roster.
Love, Rondo, Pierce, a few useful holdovers, a promising draft pick or two (I'm almost more curious about what Ainge does at No. 17 than No. 6), and some savvy Eddie House/James Posey-style bolstering of the bench by Danny Ainge? Sign me up.
Agents make the world go 'round, so the Pierce-Love connection is an interesting thought. Then again, Finn didn't make any mention of potential players coming back to the Wolves in that trade. This isn't a giveaway, after all.
