Reports: Warriors can reacquire Andrew Bogut, but reunion not likely

The Warriors can reportedly bring back Andrew Bogut this season after all.

The league reviewed the rules and Golden State is eligible to sign Bogut, according to multiple reports.

On Thursday, Bogut was traded to Philadelphia and once reports surfaced that the 76ers would potentially buy Bogut out, speculation began as to where the big man would ultimately sign.

The initial belief was that even if the Warriors and Bogut wanted to reunite, the CBA would not allow it.

In the middle of the night, Paul Pierce took to social media to do some trolling:

Why did Pierce take a shot at the Warriors?

In the first minute of the game on Thursday, Draymond fouled Blake Griffin on a jump shot.

After Griffin made the first free throw, Draymond sent the following message to Pierce (he was standing in front of the Clippers bench).

"Chasing that farewell tour -- they don't love you like that," Draymond started. "You can't get no farewell tour, they don't love you like that ... you thought you was Kobe?"

Pierce, who turned 39 years old in October, is playing in his 18th NBA season and is expected to retire at season's end.

He has appeared in just 13 games this year.

Pierce is a 10-time All-Star and was named NBA Finals MVP in 2008.
