Pietrus is a European basketball veteran who has bounced around the NBA since 2003. 2011-2012 was his first season with the Celtics, with whom he saw action in 42 games, averaging almost nine and a half minutes and seven points per game. He has played 8 minutes so far in Sunday's game against the Hawks and has picked up two fouls, turned the ball over twice, and has the one block pictured above.
