Mickael Pietrus wants to comeback to NBA, not play overseas

mickael_pietrusDespite 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.

Pietrus played 10 seasons in the NBA, appearing in 557 NBA games, starting in 172 of them.  He played for Golden State Warriors, Orlando Magic, Phoenix Suns, Boston Celtics and Toronto Raptors.

Pietrus averaged 8.3 points and 3.1 rebounds during his career.

Regarded as a defensive, floor-spacing wing, Pietrus received limited minutes with the Raptors a year ago.
