As doors open for training camps all around the
Basketball Association, the Phoenix Suns remained busy on
Friday, agreeing to trade swingman Mickael Pietrus and
Raptors for a conditional second round pick. The deal is
contingent on Pietrus passing a physical in Toronto.
Pietrus was acquired by the Suns from Orlando in the trade
that also brought Marcin Gortat and Vince Carter to the
Valley last December. He appeared in 38 games for the
starting four, and averaged 7.4 points and 2.0 rebounds
game in a Phoenix uniform.
This deal comes one day after the Suns came to separate
agreements with free agent guards Sebastian Telfair and
Phoenix opens their regular season Monday, December 26th
home against the New Orleans Hornets.
