Despite the lack of a deal forming in the NBA, free agent forward Mickael Pietrus hasn’t started to consider signing overseas, rejecting significant offers, a source told RealGM.
For Pietrus, there’s no desire to play outside the NBA, and his representatives have repeatedly gauged interest within the league. Two NBA teams are maintaining steady inquiries on Pietrus, a source said, and the 31-year-old has been working out in Orlando.
In 10 NBA seasons, Pietrus has averaged 8.3 points and 3.1 rebounds, playing for five teams including the Golden State Warriors, Orlando Magic, Phoenix Suns, Boston Celtics and Toronto Raptors.
Regarded as a defensive, floor-spacing wing, Pietrus received limited minutes with the Raptors a year ago.
