After some research, Wizards guard Brandon Jennings has done a 180 on his opinion on Paul Pierce.
Per SB Nation’s Posting and Toasting blog, the Knicks Cheap Red Wings Jerseys convinced Porzingis to forego the Olympic qualifying tournament last summer, but the team’s disastrous 2016-17 season makes their argument against him playing in the Euros far less persuasive.
