Report: Pacers contact Mickael Pietrus after Granger news

The Pacers may want to add some wing depth to their roster following the news that Danny Granger is out for three months allowing his left knee to heal.

Which may mean enter Mickael Pietrus, reports Mike Wells of the Indy Star on twitter.

 

Pietrus has bounced around the NBA for nine seasons and last season was coming off the Boston bench, playing even more minutes for them in the playoffs and while he hit a few big shots never really being all that efficient or effective (he shot just 38.5 percent in the regular season and 32 percent in the playoffs).

He would come off the bench and play limited minutes. He could be a small help, but what the Pacers really need is guys already on the roster — Roy Hibbert and Paul George — to step it up.
