Tracy McGrady To Consider Retirement

Tracy McGrady didn't play a significant role for an NBA team in 2012/13, landing a deal with the Spurs just in time for the playoffs. But that doesn't mean he didn't remain active, spending most of the season playing overseas in the Chinese Basketball Association. However, that may not be the case next season. According to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports (via Twitter), McGrady will consider retiring after the NBA Finals.

McGrady turned just 34 years old last month, so he probably still has something left in the tank if he wants to continue his career. In 29 CBA games, the former ninth overall pick averaged 25.0 PPG and 7.2 RPG for the Qingdao Double Star Eagles. While he certainly wouldn't post those numbers in the NBA, he was reasonably effective off the bench for the Hawks in 2011/12, averaging 5.3 PPG and 3.0 RPG in limited minutes.

If this is the last we see of McGrady in the NBA, he would end his career with an overall scoring average of 19.6 PPG and a list of achievements that includes seven All-Star appearances, two scoring titles, and two All-NBA First Team berths. Perhaps, within the next couple weeks, he'll be able to add an NBA championship to his resume as well.
