The Toronto Raptors have agreed to sign veteran shooting guard Mickael Pietrus, USA TODAY Sports has learned.
According to two people with knowledge of the situation, veteran small forward Dominic McGuire is likely to be released by the Raptors in order to make room for Pietrus. The Raptors (3-13) need help, and the addition of Pietrus is expected to be finalized on Friday.
Terms have not been released, but guessing Peaches got more than the veteran's minimum, as he was holding out for. If he was going to sign for the minimum, Pietrus would have chosen a contending team. Best of luck to Pietrus north of the border.
Thanks JHB for the tip.

WHO'S THE BOSS
Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers was asked for his reaction to the punishment handed down to the Spurs, and he was unfazed.
BOSTON — Jason Terry has had difficulty finding his niche so far in Boston, but no matter how inconsistent his scoring totals have been, the veteran guard has already made an impression on his new coach.
Terry dropped 17 points to lead all Celtics starters in Boston’s 96-78 victory over Portland on Friday. That came just one week after he was held to five points against Oklahoma...
The Boston Celtics met the Brooklyn Nets earlier tonight at the TD Garden arena, and things got wild. Kris Humphies "punched" if you will, Kevin Garnett in the face while he was going up for a shot. Celtics guard Rajon Rondo didn't like what he saw and went after Kris. The fight went into the crowd, but nothing really seemed to happen after that. Not nearly...
On Wednesday the Celtics lost to the Brooklyn Nets 95-83 on their home court, and Doc Rivers refused to mince words afterwards.
In the wake of a game that saw Rajon Rondo ejected (and his double-digit assist streak end), Rivers pointedly called the team “soft” in his postgame comments. Rivers even seemed to specifically refer to Rondo’s actions, saying “that stuff’s not...
The NBA will decide by tomorrow afternoon whether Rajon Rondo receives a suspension for his part in the "brawl" last night.

BOSTON — Doc Rivers claims to dislike coaching against his friends, but as he prepared to go up against one of his best friends in Avery Johnson, the Celtics coach seemed to be in a good mood.
Rivers addressed a number of topics in his usual pregame media availability, from basketball-related issues like Avery Bradley‘s continuing recovery from double-shoulder surgery and the...
And you guys wonder why I hate the NBA. Sure, it’s great to see Rajon Rondo shove Kris Humphries into the stands because Humphries is a complete douche who deserves to get his ass kicked by the entire Celtics team.
However, let’s at least look at why Rondo started shoving Kardashian’s ex. Kevin Garnett drives, is starting to fall backwards and it looks like douchebags left...
10 a.m.: On Monday night, the Nets took a cue from their part-owner, rapper Jay-Z, and provided the blueprint for how to beat the suddenly scuffling Knicks.
On Wednesday, the Nets can give themselves sole possession of the Atlantic Division with a win over the Celtics and a Knicks loss to the Bucks. After close to a decade of the hard knock life, the Nets could be big pimpin’....
Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo was ejected in the second quarter of Wednesday night's game against Brooklyn when he shoved Kris Humphries after the Nets forward knocked Kevin Garnett to the ground with a hard foul.
Humphries was given two technical fouls and ejected. Nets forward Gerald Wallace, who joined the fray under the Boston basket, was given one technical, but...
The Raptors have lost six consecutive games.
I am in the minority here that I have no problem with Rondo's decision to back up Kevin, who was just wacked in the face on a dirty cheap play. What I do have a problem with is that this escalated and the Nets walked away as winners since the trade off was Kris Humphries for Rajon Rondo, which ultimately costed Boston the game and more importantly, stopped the assist streak...
