Mickael Pietrus' camp believes that Pietrus is close to a deal with a team, according to Darren Wolfson of ESPN 1500 (via Twitter). While Wolfson isn't sure which club is the frontrunner for Pietrus' services, he says it doesn't appear to be the Timberwolves.

Pietrus' agent said earlier in the offseason that his client wouldn't be signing for the minimum salary, and while that still may be the case, it's hard to imagine the 30-year-old getting too much more than that. Pietrus was said to be interested in returning to the Celtics for the team's bi-annual exception, and the Bucks were also eyeing the Frenchman, though their interest reportedly waned.

Pietrus has been well-traveled in recent years, playing for the Magic, Suns, and Celtics within the last two seasons. In 2011/12 for Boston, the 6'6" wing averaged 6.9 points and 3.1 rebounds in 21.9 minutes per game.
