Tracy McGrady underwent a physical with the Clippers on Tuesday and was scheduled to work out for the team on Wednesday. It was reported last week that McGrady would work out for the Clippers on Tuesday.
HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: Instead of developing their young pieces, the Los Angeles Clippers are clinging to the hope that Tracy McGrady can help.
McGrady isn't T-Mac. He hasn't been for years. The Houston Rockets, who didn't even make the playoffs in 2010, couldn't get rid of him fast enough.
The New York Knicks acquired him for one reason: his expiring contract. And despite striking out on most free agents this summer, the Knicks had zero interest in re-signing McGrady.
Yet, the Clippers - the league's perpetual laughingstock - are flirting with the former All-Star.
It doesn't matter that he was brittle and a shade of his former self before microfracture surgery. It doesn't matter that his defense is now non-existent. It doesn't matter that his demand for touches, shots, and minutes would stunt the development of their young players.
Los Angeles' other team is desperate. So is McGrady. Sounds like a match made in heaven.
