08:03 AM ET 11.29 | All that interest may yet pay off in Toronto. Bryan Colangelo and the Raptors have courted Mickael Pietrus for years and they might finally have reeled him in. ESPN first reported the Raptors had renewed the pursuit of the veteran swingman and team president/general manager Bryan Colangelo said the Raptors are "exploring options to get better at the wing given our injuries." Pietrus is a career 36% shooter from three and has always been a solid defender. Colangelo considered signing Pietrus as a free agent back in 2007, but opted instead for Jason Kapono. The team nearly traded for him last season, but weren't happy about the results of his physical. Landry Fields and Alan Anderson remain sidelined due to injury.
