Mickael Pietrus Interested in Playing for the Milwaukee Bucks

by August 03, 2012

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.'”
