Teams are always looking to bring in players either through a trade or free-agency, especially if it will help their shooting depth and percentage. One player that comes under this category and is entering the final year of his contract is Mickaël Piétrus of the Phoenix Suns.
Mickaël Piétrus spent the 2010-11 NBA season with both the Orlando Magic and the Phoenix Suns. Piétrus was traded to the Phoenix Suns on December 18, 2010 along with Marcin Gortat, Vince Carter, a 2011 first-round draft pick, and $3 million cash considerations in exchange for Hidayet Turkoglu, Jason Richardson and Earl Clark.
While with the Phoenix Suns, Piétrus was in and out of the rotation partly due to injury and there already being established shooters on the roster already. As a result, Piétrus was not happy about being used sparingly especially after being part of the regular rotation in Orlando.
Since he has exercised his contract for the 2011-12 NBA season already Piétrus may have to look for a trade to move out of Phoenix. Listed on the following slides are three potential trade destinations that would allow Piétrus to get back into the regular rotation somewhere.
