Pietrus Agrees to Sign With Celtics

Boston.com has the story: “Just a few minutes after Mickael Pietrus cleared waivers, he agreed to join the Celtics, giving the team’s bench a potential replacement for the injured Jeff Green. Pietrus, 29, was bought out by the Phoenix Suns on Thursday and was a free agent beginning at 6 p.m. today. The Celtics were one of four teams interested in the swingman and he favored the club during the entire process. ‘I have decided to be part of The Boston Celtics Family,’ he wrote on Twitter… Pietrus was the 11th overall pick in the 2003 NBA Draft by the Golden State Warriors and has spent time with the Magic and Suns. Mostly coming off the bench, Pietrus has averaged 8.5 points and 3.1 rebounds. His best year was 2006-07 when he averaged 11.1 points and shot nearly 49 percent for the Warriors.”

    They desperately need bench help so this is good news. It solves an immediate need for now.

    Good pick up… Someone has to run with rondo down the court and not tire out by the time they reach half court

    Solid signing. Celts need some athletic wing guys.

  • shutup

    was hoping he would sign with the spurs, they need some youth and speed. Good signing for the Celtics, he’s a solid player on both ends, he gives 100% even when injured.

  • anthony y

    Great signing for the c’s! Still athletic, runs the floor, plays d, and can give us a scoring option from the two or three spot. Good look celts.

    The thing that i don’t get is why have the Suns systematically let these pieces go or moved them for nothing in return? I just don’t get it…. Turkoglu, Pietrus, Vince Carter… they came in to replace what was lost by moving Richardson and not picking up Amare’s max contract. Throwing money away without anything in return. I really don’t think the Suns management are doing a good job at all…. This was a great pick up for the Celtics and when “Peaches” gets healthy he’ll provide a big punch on O and D for the Celtics.

    Whats with starting Sasha Pavlovic though?

    we need AI now!


    That means P.P. is in a bad way & they need a replacement or his heel will fall off completely.
