Bobcats Looking At Tracy McGrady?

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.

    I doubt that Tracy is serious about playing for the Bobcats. If he decides to work out for them it’ll be because whatever is reported in the workout will get around to other teams in the league and it will only generate interest and raise his stock as a viable option for a contender or middle of the pack playoff team.
