Tracy McGrady To The Pistons?!

by August 08, 2010

First Tracy McGrady was linked to the Clippers. Next he was said to be headed to Chicago. Now it seems that Detroit may be where the former scoring champ winds up playing in 2010-11. Marc Stein breaks it down: “Tracy McGrady might be playing in the Central Division next season, but not with the team he was anticipating. The Detroit Pistons are seriously weighing whether to sign the two-time scoring champion after McGrady’s recent flirtation with the Chicago Bulls, according to sources with knowledge of Detroit’s thinking.’s Jonathan Givony reported earlier Saturday that the Pistons have already committed to sign McGrady to a one-year deal at the league’s $1.35 million veteran minimum, but one source close to the situation told that Pistons officials were ‘taking the weekend’ to discuss the move. Another source said Saturday night that no deal has been signed but that the parties are ‘in discussions.’ Nearly two weeks after a high-profile audition with the Bulls at their practice facility, McGrady appeared to have lost all hope of landing with the team he badly wanted to join when Chicago struck an agreement Friday with veteran swingman Keith Bogans. But the Pistons have unexpectedly emerged as a suitor for McGrady after a quiet summer for Detroit that has been attributed in some league circles to owner Karen Davidson’s reluctance to spend given her well-chronicled desire to sell the team.”
