Mickael Pietrus has reached agreement on a one-year, veteran-minimum contract with the Toronto Raptors, agent Bill McCandless confirmed to RealGM on Thursday night. The deal will be made official Friday, McCandless confirmed.

"It came down, in the end, to choosing the team who liked him best," said McCandless.
USA Today first reported Pietrus’ deal with the Raptors.
In the end, Pietrus passed up five offers – from the Atlanta Hawks, Indiana Pacers, Minnesota Timberwolves, Philadelphia 76ers and San Antonio Spurs – due to the Raptors’ relentless pursuit. Recently, Pietrus rejected the Spurs’ offer of a contract guaranteeing just one month.
Pietrus’ camp has been in dialogue with the Raptors since the offseason, and Toronto general manager Bryan Colangelo has attempted to acquire the 6-foot-6 forward through trade in the past.
Dominic McGuire will be waived by the Raptors to make room on the roster, agent Mark Bartelstein told RealGM.

Pietrus, 30, has averaged 8.4 points and 3.1 rebounds in his nine-year NBA career with four different teams. Pietrus, who has been training in France for months, has established himself as a solid outside shooter and a top-tier wing defender when healthy.
