WASHINGTON – Veteran Paul Pierce practiced exit clause in his contract with the Wizards, which will make him a free agent as of Wednesday.

Pierce signed last summer a two-year deal with Washington, but the contract had an option granted to the player for the 2015-2016 season.

The Wizards have reached the semifinals of the East before losing in six games to Atlanta this year. The team had experienced a 46-36 regular season, his best since 1978-1979.

Pierce starred in series face the Hawks, including in the number three match, where the shooting last second gave the victory to the Wizards. He seemed to have leveled the score in the same way in the number six match, but the ball left his hand just a little too late.

In 73 regular season games, Pierce gave averages of 12 points and four rebounds.

The athlete of 37 years played his first 15 seasons with the Boston Celtics, winning the NBA championship in 2008. He also played for the Brooklyn Nets.
