NBA Rumors: Boston Celtics Interested In Suns' Mickael Pietrus?

Mickael Pietrus has a bit of a history with the Boston Celtics, ranging from scuffles with Kevin Garnett to the team potentially being interested in adding his services at last season's trade deadline.

Now, according to Pietrus, the Celtics are once again interested in bringing him into the mix.

"Phoenix didn't use me, but that's their problem. I'm going to continue working. The only thing I care about is winning a title... A lot of teams are interested in me, like the Lakers or the Celtics. This came from the best player in the world: Kobe Bryant. He told me two months ago that he would like to see me with the Lakers." (via HoopsHype)

Pietrus has played eight seasons in the NBA, averaging 8.5 points, 3.1 rebounds and has a career 43.1 percent shooting touch from the field. Drafted No. 11 overall in the 2003 NBA Draft by the Golden State Warriors, Pietrus played his first five seasons with the team before signing as a free agent with the Orlando Magic on July 10, 2008.

Pietrus played in Orlando for just over two seasons before he was traded to the Phoenix Suns, where he played 38 games and averaged 7.4 points and two rebounds last season.
