05:31 PM ET 11.07 | Danny Granger's absence for the next three months with a left patella injury leaves the Indiana Pacers very thin on the wings. That probably explains why the team has reached out to former Boston Celtics swingman Mickael Pietrus, according to the Indianapolis Star. The 30-year-old Pietrus averaged 6.9 points in 21.9 minutes per contest for the Celtics last year. He would likely come off the bench and replace Sam Young and/or Lance Stephenson in the rotation if he joins the club.

The guys is a reasonable player but him and his agent refused to accept anything less than $4M deal since he apparently had such offers overseas.
Anything > $2M per is not worth it for backup minutes.
