Default Pietrus requesting trade; BC interested?

His name has been mentioned by many here in Toronto for about 2 or 3 years now and with some concerns regarding SF, does Pietrus fill that void and do you think BC's called Mullin to enquire?

I dont' think he's a 'take us to the next level' guy. Is he that much of an upgrade over Moon? I say we stand pat unless we can get a guy with Maggette or Miller talent. There's a reason Pietrus isn't playing right? He's not outplaying the guys at his position... to trade just to get someone a tad bit better than Moon and potentially or at least possibly upset our team chemistry(which is probably the best thing we have going right now) might not be worth it?

Yuck. I wouldn't touch Pietrus. Really, he's no better than Moon - if anything, Jamario is better than him.

Pietrus is a PUTRID shooter and horrible rebounder - really bad fit for a team like this.

Yeah, I was curious because I think I've only seen him play once or twice. So, I don't really know if there was anything he could bring to the table that we don't already have here in Toronto.

BC has some tough decisions. Does he try and find a stop gap solution right now at the risk of hurting the team down the road? Probably not.

Pietrus is not the answer though. Moon is 100x smarter than him.

i dont like Pietrus...
moon will be better by next year, i actually see him more as a joey graham type.
great body, good athletics, but nothing up top.
he wouldnt improve this team in the least.
