Suns Buy Out Mickael Pietrus
Mickael Pietrus was a Sun in roster only lately until they waived him Thursday.
The Suns bought out Pietrus’ contract, paying him about $4.2 million of his $5.3 million salary. Once he clears waivers, Pietrus can pick from a group of other interested teams, led by Boston, to make up the difference.
“Both Mickael and us realized it’d be beneficial for both parties to part ways,” Suns President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby said. “There’s an expression that, ‘All’s well that ends well.’ In this case, all’s well that ends.”
