Paul Pierce won $60,000 in chips on his first day at the World Series of Poker

Paul Pierce doesn’t seem to be sweating free agency too much. While the Nets and Los Angeles Clippers fight over Pierce’s services — either show me the money or show me Doc Rivers — Pierce is in Las Vegas playing at the World Series of Poker:

Seems like Pierce had a pretty good day: he later said he won $60,000 in chips on day one.

It’s worth noting that he didn’t actually win $60,000 — he won $60,000 in chips at the tournament. But if Pierce has enough good days, maybe he’ll be able to come down from his asking price of $9-10 million.
