The start of NBA training camps is just a few days off, and still a number of veterans are looking for a contract to start the 2012-13 season.
Former All-Star Tracy McGrady is one of those veterans, but recent reports have the San Antonio Spurs interested in the 33-year-old. After eight straight years of scoring more than 20 points per game early in his career, injuries have slowed the veteran guard, and he is now just looking to become a role player for any team in the league.
San Antonio has a need for depth in their back-court and a player that can give the Spurs some offense off the bench. The former first-round draft pick can fill both those needs, and it would cost the team just the veterans minimum for the upcoming season.
McGrady averaged just five points per game last year in the NBA, but he did stay healthy for the year, and that should give San Antonio a good feeling about signing the veteran and bringing him off the bench this season.
