NBA Offseason: Toronto Raptors Acquire Mickael Pietrus from Phoenix
It looks like the Phoenix Suns are looking to dramatically change the landscape of their roster. First, the organization decided to waive Vince Carter and Gani Lawal, costing them a total of four million dollars.
Now, The Arizona Republic has reported that Mickael Pietrus was traded to the Toronto Raptors for a conditional second-round pick and a cash sum of about one million dollars. Since the Suns didn't receive any players in the deal they will receive a 5.3 million dollar trade exception.
The Phoenix Suns have been very smart so far this offseason, attempting to make all of their moves as early as possible so the team has some time to work together during training camps and preseason.
In the final year of his contract, Pietrus is set to earn 5.3 million dollars this season. As a strong defender, Pietrus could add some well needed discipline to the Raptors roster. If Pietrus can blossom into the player he was once expected to be, Toronto may be his home for awhile.
