NBA Rumors: Tracy McGrady Being Pursued By San Antonio Spurs, New York Knicks?
Former all-star guard Tracy McGrady is looking to make another run with an NBA team by getting a non-guaranteed deal. He has bounced around from team-to-team in recent years and has not been the same after consistent injuries have brought his game down.
McGrady tried out with the San Antonio Spurs earlier in the week and will also receive a tryout with the one of his former teams the New York Knicks Thursday. There has also been reports that the Charlotte Bobcats were also in the mix for McGrady but that was a little over a month ago.
T-Mac is coming off a career low in points per game average. He averaged 5.3 points with the Atlanta Hawks last season. In the season before that McGrady was with the Pistons scoring 8.0 points per game. The prowess of McGrady has not effected the NBA in some years.
The seven-time all-star has not seen an all-star game since 2007 when he was with the Houston Rockets. He also won the 2000-01 Most Improved Player of the Month.
There is hope that McGrady could come back to add to the bench of some contending team. The Knicks are the team out of the two that might need him the most. The team already has players, Ronnie Brewer and Iman Shumpert, recovering from injuries. A little help on the bench would not entirely hurt the team.
The Spurs already have their bench filled out behind Manu Ginobili and Kwahi Leonard. I don’t think McGrady would fit with them.
