Report: Pistons considering Tracy McGrady

FOX Sports Detroit

Detroit — The Detroit Pistons are in serious discussions with seven-time All-Star Tracy McGrady, reported Sunday.

According to The News, it’s unknown if McGrady — who because of injuries has played in only 75 games since the 2007-08 season — will work out for the Pistons before an official offer is extended.

If signed, The News said it would be for the veterans’ minimum, bringing him around $1.2 million, which would be considered a steal if he gets anywhere close to his potential playing level. 

During his 13-year career, McGrady has averaged over 34 minutes and 21 points per game.

The 31-year-old guard-forward has been
burdened with injuries the last few years. He recorded a career-low last season by playing in only 30 games
while recovering from micro-fracture knee surgery.

The Pistons finished the 2009-10 season last in the Central Division with
a 27-55 record.
