Tracy McGrady Works Out For Spurs and Knicks

By Adrian Wojnarowski

Still searching for an NBA franchise willing to guarantee a contract for next season, seven-time All-Star Tracy McGrady worked out for the San Antonio Spurs this week at the team's practice facility, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Next up for McGrady on Thursday is a workout for the New York Knicks, league sources said.

Time is running out for the 33-year-old McGrady to secure a guaranteed contract for the season. Sources say he will likely have to choose between accepting a "make-good" training-camp invite or going overseas – perhaps to China.

The Spurs have brought several players to San Antonio to evaluate over recent weeks, and have yet to make a decision on whether McGrady could possibly fit into the team's plans this season. The Knicks have discussed the possibility of adding another perimeter scoring threat, and want to evaluate McGrady for a possible return. McGrady played 24 games in 2010 with the Knicks.

After 15 years in the league, McGrady had career-low numbers in Atlanta a season ago, averaging 5.2 points in 16 minutes per game. A former two-time scoring champion and first-team All-NBA player, McGrady has been slowed with knee problems in recent years.

I'd love McGrady behind Ebanks. He can teach him a few things.

Laugh if you'd like, but that's how it would be. The Lakers could go out right now and get McGrady to take Ebanks' spot couldn't they? If they really wanted McGrady to be here and play over Ebanks, they could do it at any minute. All they'd have to do is call. He's working out for crap teams just looking for anyone to give him a contract.

But they haven't called him. No one seems to have called him and offered a position that he's willing to take at the end of the bench. Why do you think a team like Atlanta that has no one and is going nowhere wouldn't re-sign him for depth? Because he's just not very good anymore is the correct answer. With so many young, athletic, talented wings out there, McGrady is an after thought.

If he came here, he'd be behind Ebanks. Sorry.

After reading the article, doesn't sound like teams are even offering him vet min offers. Sounds like a non-guaranteed contract. He didn't have a bad year with the Hawks last season, have a hard time believing he can't even get a guaranteed offer right now. I think he's at least earned that much.

Lakers would have nothing to lose as adding him as a 13th man with a guaranteed deal.

i'd love to see the lakers pick him up and have him teach ebanks a thing or two before he's ready to go, while he's a far cry from what he was 10 years ago, he can still play at a decent level and would be a great backup

^ I'm with you guys. I think if he's not even getting offered work, we can offer him a job for depth.

Nash/Blake/Duhon/Morris
Bryant/Meeks
Artest/Ebanks/McGrady
Gasol/Jamison/Clark
Howard/Hill/Sacre

Full 15 man roster? I think we wouldn't really find a better signing than McGrady anyway.

I don't get it, he played well for ATL off the bench last season and certainly deserves a guaranteed minimum contract over trash players like Childress, Blatche or anyone else New Jersey has been signing not named Deron.

He showed good attitude last year, I think he would fit fine with the Spurs.

I Think T-Mac at $1 mill for a 1 year contract with the Lakers would be great
