Tracy McGrady Reportedly Thinking of Playing in China

Tracy McGrady hasn’t been able to secure an NBA gig, and the 33-year old veteran is now apparently considering joining a club in China. Per ESPN: “McGrady’s preference is to sign with an NBA club — preferably one that can compete for the championship — and a source said he will wait to see if he is picked up by such a team before committing to play overseas. McGrady could wait up to four weeks before making his decision, the source said. The Chinese publication, 361 Sport, first reported on Tuesday that McGrady’s representatives are in discussions with the club, Qingdao Doublestar, of the Chinese Basketball Association. The source cautioned, however, that there is no guarantee that the 33-year-old McGrady will decide to play in China this season, even if he does not sign with an NBA team.”

    this “thinking of playing in china” BS is getting old from NBA players. For everyone that does not get it, their agents, ie tmac’s agent, is simply getting press by saying this BS so that tmacs name is on the mind of NBA teams or possibly to create any little leverage as possible to squeeze a few more greenbacks out of an NBA owner’s wallet.
    Don’t believe me… Why the hell would tmac want to play in china? And don’t tell me he loves experiencing knew cultures in far away lands.
    Get real.

    sucks to see McGrady “thinking about playing in China’…if not for injuries he could still be in the top 10 in the league…..

    um.. going to china to play ball after being an allstar in the nba makes tmac a joke. it is a different for someone that has not made it in the nba and is trying to make it or if he had some roots in china or something.
