Suns Looking to Trade Mickael Pietrus?
Mickael Pietrus is looking to stay in Phoenix, but will the Suns keep the swingman for next season? Via Arizona Republic: “In about as much of a surprise as the sunrise, Suns swingman Mickael Pietrus decided Monday to exercise his $5.3 million option for next season instead of becoming a free agent. Whether that means Pietrus stays with Phoenix remains to be seen. His agent, Bill McCandless, says he expects roster shuffling in Phoenix. ‘I’d be surprised if Lon (Babby, Suns president of basketball operations) doesn’t make a couple deals on draft day or later,’ McCandless said. ‘If you have a surplus in one position and a need in another, guess what? ‘But if he (Pietrus) comes back, he’s looking forward to having a full training camp. It’s not the easiest thing, for any player, to be traded and go from Coaching Style A to Coaching Style B and from Management Style A to Management Style B.’”
