Paul Pierce might be out of work right now, but not for long.

On Monday, it was reported that the Worldwide Leader in Sports would be parting ways with him after the NBA legend took to his Instagram Live and showed himself smoking weed, playing poker, all while strippers were twerking in the background.

Dave Portnoy of Barstool Sports is looking to capitalize on the opportunity as he began recruiting him.

Portnoy said during his popular “Davey Day Trader” stream that he has reached out to Pierce.

“Listen, Paul Pierce, I’m gonna make a run at Paul Pierce,” Portnoy said. “I’m gonna make a run at his a–. I reached out. Contact has been made. He got fired from ESPN for having strippers and blunts in the background of a livestream. Whatever, I don’t give a f— about that. We’d love to have him.”

Barstool has grown exponentially over the years, even bringing on some high-profile former athletes, most notably Deion Sanders.

At this point, it’s not a matter of if, but when Pierce joins Barstool Sports.
