A week after they displayed "exploratory" interest in Josh Howard and worked him out, the Bobcats may take the same approach with Tracy McGrady, according to Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer. Bonnell tweets that the unrestricted free agent "might work out with the Bobcats some" in the near future.
As Bonnell notes in a second tweet, McGrady didn't look bad in limited action for the Hawks in 2011/12. His 13.6 PER wasn't great by his standards, but given the players remaining on the free agent market, the veteran wing actually looks like one of the more appealing options. In 52 games for Atlanta, T-Mac averaged 5.3 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 2.1 assists in 16.1 minutes per contest.
This is just my speculation, but I would think McGrady should be drawing interest as a minimum-salary player from teams more appealing than the Bobcats. If that's the case, perhaps he's hoping Charlotte would be willing to sign him using leftover cap space or their room exception, rather than on a minimum-salary deal.
