Spurs, Knicks Eyeing Tracy McGrady

In search of a guaranteed deal for the coming season, Tracy McGrady worked out for the Spurs this week, and has a workout scheduled with the Knicks today, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. Wojnarowski adds that time may be running out for McGrady to land a guaranteed contract — the seven-time All-Star might have to eventually accept a make-good training camp invite or sign overseas.

McGrady was reportedly drawing some interest from the Bobcats, but we heard a little over a month ago that the 33-year-old would prefer to join a contender. I'm a little surprised that McGrady hasn't received more interest this offseason. He may not be the same player that twice led the NBA in scoring, but he has been fairly productive over the last two years for the Pistons and Hawks, recording a 14.5 PER in 124 total games.

The Spurs have brought a number of players to San Antonio in recent weeks, and are still determining whether or not McGrady will fit into their plans, says Wojnarowski. As for the Knicks, the team has discussed the possibility of adding another perimeter scorer. With Iman Shumpert and Ronnie Brewer currently recovering from injuries, it wouldn't be a bad idea for the Knicks to bring on a veteran like McGrady for depth purposes.
