Kobe Bryant Wants Mickael Pietrus; Phoenix Wing Not Happy With Suns

Mickael Pietrus, the French swingman who arrived in the Valley of the Sun via last year's mid-season trade with the Orlando Magic, is ready to part ways with the Phoenix Suns after playing just 38 games for the team. The 6'6" wing averaged 18.1 minutes per game with Phoenix, which was apparently not enough for his liking. 

In a recent interview translated by HoopsHype, Pietrus shared his frustration: "Phoenix didn't use me, but that's their problem. I'm going to continue working. The only thing I care about is winning a title."

Pietrus also shared that he has received interest from many teams, such as the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics. Said Pietrus of the Lakers' interest: "This came from the best player in the world: Kobe Bryant. He told me two months ago that he would like to see me with the Lakers."

For that to happen, however, the Lakers would have to trade for him. Pietrus exercised his $5.3 million player option for the 2011-2012 season on June 15, meaning he is under contract with the Suns for another year.
