Tracy McGrady’s team in the Chinese Basketball Association failed to make the playoffs, thus ending the former NBA superstar’s season overseas. The two-time scoring champion and seven-time All-Star sat courtside last night, watching his former team in Houston Rockets blowout the Dallas Mavericks.
There are no words or rumors on whether McGrady will be aiming to make a return to the NBA, but he did put up solid numbers in China. The competition was obviously not anywhere near the NBA level, but T-Mac averaged 25 points, 7.2 rebounds and 5.1 assists in 29 games this season.
After being one of the elite scorers in the NBA, McGrady suffered through a lot of injuries which slowed down his career. Last season, McGrady played a reduced role off the bench for the Atlanta Hawks, providing a veteran presence and some scoring.
Even at 33 years of age, McGrady could still fill out a roster on an NBA team, and we will have to wait and see whether he wants to make a return. He has until the end of the regular season to sign for a team.
