This is something I’ve been screaming for-for years now. Mickael Pietrus is now a Raptor; only costing us a conditional 2nd round pick. Not bad considering he’s in the final year of his contract ($5.3m) and will be playing for his next/last contract. i.e. contract year effort

Pietrus gives the Raptors three point shooting, as well as much needed defense out on the wing; things that Casey covets.

Along with the Magloire signing, the Raptors seem to be bringing in cheap(ish), defensive oriented veterans that will come off the books at the end of the season, giving the Raps some nice cap space to try and make something happen.
