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.
