NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Just when it looked like Sprint Nextel (S) was consigned to being the odd man out when it comes to wireless M&A, there's a report the company is mulling making a counter-bid for MetroPCS (PCS).
Bloomberg said Thursday Sprint is in the "early stages" of evaluating whether it should make a run at Dallas-based MetroPCS.
Nothing is official at this point, and both companies could not be immediately reached for comment on this story.
