It’s official … well, not quite … but Mickael Pietrus is done with the Warriors. My colleague John Denton at Florida Today wrote that the Magic have agreed to terms with MP2. The length of the deal is unknown, but Florida Today did report the deal is said to start at $5.2 million in the first year.
It looks like MP got close to what he wanted. He had been seeking the midlevel preferrably in Miami, which is as close to home as he can get in the NBA. He wound up about $600,000 and a few hundred miles short.
I thought he would be spurned by teams because of his salary desires and return to the Warriors for like three years, $12-14 million. I am shocked he got a deal before most other
Would you have giving him $5-plus mil a year to stay with the Warriors?
