Mickael Pietrus Still Looking for an NBA Contract

According to Mickael Pietrus’ agent, the veteran forward is in talks with several NBA teams, but he has yet to land a deal. Per RealGM: “While [Bill] McCandless admits he has been in contact with general managers across the NBA, he insisted by phone: ‘A report goes out and everybody thinks Mickael is on a plane headed for Indiana. Everybody needs to hold their horses.’ Over the past week, Pietrus’ camp has seen a spike in interest for the veteran swingman, who has career averages of 8.4 points and 3.1 rebounds and is well regarded as among the stellar perimeter defenders in the league. The health of Pietrus’ knee has been perceived as an issue, but McCandless stressed he is 100 percent healthy following an offseason of intensive rehabilitation. Pietrus’ representatives are confident a deal will be found soon.”
