Mickael Pietrus has signed with Mets de Guaynabo of Puerto Rico.
Pietrus last played in the NBA with the Raptors during the 2012-13 season and is now 33 years old, so while it brings back memories to hear his name again, fantasy owners can feel free to move to the next blurb. Thu, Mar 5, 2015 10:02:00 AM

Free agent Mickael Pietrus worked out for the Sacramento Kings.

His future in the NBA has been somewhat in doubt as of late. In late March it was reported he was no longer attempting to return to the NBA, but Pietrus resurfaced early in September. He had workouts lined up with four NBA teams, and it appears the Kings are one of them. If he is signed he will likely be a veteran presence in the locker room, but won't see many minutes on the court.

Mickael Pietrus will work out for four NBA teams this month.

The first workout is scheduled for Sept. 16 and his agent said he's hoping that will build some interest. Pietrus hasn't been able to stay healthy, but some teams with a lack of depth could give him a shot.

Free agent G/F Mickael Pietrus is no longer attempting to return to the NBA this season.

The 32-year-old turned down offers to play overseas in the hopes that an NBA team would sign him, but that plan never came to fruition. He hopes to train this summer and mount another comeback attempt next year.

Veteran F Mickael Pietrus has turned down 15 offers to play overseas, according to his agent, because he wants to return to the NBA.

"We’re open and active, waiting for the best opportunity for Mickael," said his agent. "It's the NBA or bust." Pietrus is only 31 years old and he may well earn a 10-day contract with some team, but either way he's irrelevant for fantasy purposes.

The player rep for free agent G/F Mickael Pietrus says he has a workout scheduled with two undisclosed NBA teams in September.

Pietrus, 31, has previously been linked to the Knicks. His agent claims his client's troublesome knee is back to 100 percent and he's working out in France. Pietrus will have to prove it in workouts to get a look.

The Knicks have contacted free agent Mickael Pietrus.

Pietrus will work out for interested NBA teams when he returns to the U.S. two weeks from now, so nothing is imminent. He played in just 19 games with the Raptors last year, before being shut down by knee tendinitis, and he'd assuredly be signing a minimum-salary contract.

Mickael Pietrus is out indefinitely with left knee tendinitis.

Pietrus is not an option in even extremely deep formats as his knees are simply never healthy.

Mickael Pietrus scored just two points in 21 minutes against the Rockets on Sunday.

Pietrus' minutes have been cut severely since the return of Alan Anderson and he's also been unable to hit double figures in scoring in any of his last four games. He can be let loose in standard leagues.

Mickael Pietrus (ankle) returned to action and scored nine points on 3-of-13 shooting (1-of-7 from deep) with three rebounds and one steal in 38 minutes on Monday against the Blazers.

As long as Pietrus is healthy and the Raptors remain banged up, he'll be a good bet to score points and hit 3-point buckets. His knees are on their last lap and he'll be a threat for random DNPs, but there's value to be had here if you're comfortable with the risks.

Mickael Pietrus (knee) will start for the Raptors against the Blazers on Monday.

Pietrus sat out of Sunday's game with left knee tendinitis, but he felt well enough to suit up tonight. There's a good chance that Pietrus' knees might not be able to take back-to-back sets, so just keep that in mind for owners that are looking to ride his hot start with his new team.

Mickael Pietrus (left knee tendinitis) will not play against the Clippers on Sunday.

Pietrus has been plagued by knee problems for quite some time and he's likely going to need some days off here and there. That said, he's been putting up nice numbers so far this year and is worth a look in some leagues. Linas Kleiza will draw a start, but he doesn't have much fantasy value with health issues of his own.

Mickael Pietrus hit four 3-point shots and put up 13 points, four rebounds, three blocks, and a steal in another start at small forward on Friday against the Jazz.

Pietrus looks like he has the starting small forward job locked down for the foreseeable future, and the lack of wing depth makes him a decent starting option that could go to 'good' with just a few more solid games to show he has staying power. He carries plenty of injury risk and the small sample size might be deceiving, but we'd have a hard time not taking a flier on him if we're holding some dead weight.

Mickael Pietrus started for the Raptors on Wednesday and exploded for 21 points, six rebounds, a steal and two 3-pointers on 8-of-15 shooting in a whopping 40 minutes.

Pietrus had totaled just nine points in his two other games this season, but was clearly a huge part of Toronto's rotation tonight with Linas Kleiza, Alan Anderson and Landry Fields all out with various injuries. And while Anderson and Fields aren't due back anytime soon, if Kleiza continues to sit with a hip injury, Pietrus could be ready to go on a tear. He's worth a possible flier in deep leagues, and is worth keeping an eye on over the next couple games in all other leagues.

Raptors sign G/F Mickael Pietrus.

The move is now official, and the contract is reportedly worth the veteran's minimum. Pietrus is expected to be in uniform and play on Friday.
