Obviously, there’s no room in Boston for Mickael Pietrus. The Celtics, according to Pietrus’ agent, have cut off contact with their former backup wing. (Boston Herald)
“We haven’t heard from (the Celtics), so we’ll move on,” Pietrus’ agent Bill McKandless said. “I’m not surprised. If we hear from them, Mike will be thrilled, and if not then I guess that’s life in the big city.”
For a player as good as Pietrus, it may be difficult to find much daylight here.
“Mike is fine,” McKandless said. “He’s had a great career. He’s 30, so he’s in his prime. It’s not as if he’s 36.”
With Courtney Lee, Jason Terry and Jeff Green all set to come off the bench whenever Avery Bradley returns to health, Pietrus would have had zero chance to earn any playing time. Even if the Celtics wanted him back, why on earth would Pietrus want to join a team where he might receive 40 or 45 DNP-CDs? There are still teams Pietrus can help as a defender and streak shooter. The Celtics just aren’t one of them.
