NBA roundup: Pierce re-signs with Celtics

The Boston Celtics have agreed to terms with captain Paul Pierce on a deal that could keep the MVP of their 2008 title run with the team for another four seasons.

Contract details were not announced because the free-agent signing period does not begin until Thursday.

The Boston Herald reported that Pierce will get $61 million for four years, with a mutual option for the fourth year. He opted out of the final year of a contract that was to pay him $21.51 million next season.

Madrid signs Rodriguez

Real Madrid signed former Knicks guard Sergio Rodriguez to a three-year contract. The Knicks acquired Rodriguez from the Sacramento Kings last season as part of the three-team deal that brought former scoring champion Tracy McGrady to the Knicks in February. The 6-3 Rodriguez averaged 7.4 points and 3.4 assists in 27 games for the Knicks.

Nowitzki gets offer Dallas Mavericks president Donnie Nelson said he made a "significant" contract offer to Dirk Nowitzki. The most Nowitzki could re-sign for is $96 million over four years. He opted out of the final year of his contract to become an unrestricted free agent for the first time but has given the Mavs the first shot at keeping him.

Blake, Lakers agree

Point guard Steve Blake says he has agreed to a four-year contract with the two-time defending champion Los Angeles Lakers, who might lose point guard Derek Fisher in free agency.

Salmons, Bucks have deal

The Milwaukee Bucks agreed in principle to a five-year, $40-million deal with free-agent guard John Salmons. The 6-6 Salmons averaged 19.9 points for the Bucks this past season.
