Mickael Pietrus expected to join Raptors
By RYAN WOLSTAT, QMI Agency
MEMPHIS - Mickael Pietrus, come on down, you're the next contestant in Toronto's seemingly never-ending search to find a capable small forward.
The nine-year veteran has long been linked to the Raptors and should be in the lineup on Friday against Phoenix, one of four clubs for which Pietrus previously has played. Pietrus was in Toronto the past few days and underwent a physical. The Raptors didn't like the results of one last season, when Pietrus was returning from a knee injury, scuttling a trade with the Suns, but USA Today reported Thursday evening that this time, he would join the team.
