Mickael Pietrus Interested in Playing for the Milwaukee Bucks

Free agent forward Mickael Pietrus wouldn’t mind suiting up for the Milwaukee Bucks next season, according to his agent. Reports the Journal-Times: “While the top-shelf wings have already signed with other teams, there are still some solid veterans available. One of them is Mickael Pietrus, who played last season with Boston. Pietrus, 30, isn’t much of an offensive player — he averaged 6.9 points in 42 games last season for the Celtics — but he is a superb defender with excellent quickness and length. He is also versatile, able to defend forwards and guards alike. Bill McCandless, Pietrus’ agent, said his client is drawing consideration from several teams. McCandless confirmed he and Bucks general manager John Hammond have had exploratory talks. ‘We talked about 10 to 14 days ago,’ McCandless said. ‘We’re waiting to see what happens. Mickael would be interested in playing for Milwaukee, absolutely.’”

    Yeah, I would also like to play for the Bucks

    His knee was never quite right last year; I’d expect slightly better numbers and more playing time for him this season. Good guy off the court and in the lockerroom, not bad for a vet’s minimum…

    …yeah but no one is interested in reading about either Mickael Pietrus OR the Milwaukee Bucks

    The Hawks should call him or honeslty the LAKERS could use him if they can swing it. He is a great defender and not so bad offensively but never gets touches to show his skill. I cannot believe these “championship” aspiration teams arent calling. I guess if you dont scream for shots and play great defense on the perimeter there is no place in the NBA for you.

    Bawse, unless you’re 7 feet tall. Then you’ll get paid for standing there.

    In the Orlando run when they went to the finals he was great.

    So he’s gonna take the vet min to play for the bucks even though his agent made a huge stink about how “mickael piertus isn’t a min player.” He wouldn’t take the min from the Celtics but the bucks. HAHAHAH

    Mickael would be a great pick up for any contender. Yes his
    numbers and offense were off last year but If healthy he
    Would be a very good addition.
