Pierce was an analyst for the network on multiple NBA shows. That included the studio show, “The Jump” and its pregame show “NBA Countdown.” Pierce, who went by the nickname “The Truth,” won an NBA championship with the Celtics in 2008.
Pierce joined ESPN before the 2017-2018 season.
Pierce seemingly addressed the situation on Twitter shortly after the news broke.
It is unclear if anyone will replace Pierce on ESPN’s NBA programming or if the network will just rotate in other commentators, reporters and analysts to fill his spot.
