Pistons Continue Evaluating McGrady; Deal 'Not Close'

David Aldridge of NBA.com brings us up to speed on the Pistons’ pursuit of Tracy McGrady, the two-time scoring champion who’s badly in need of a new team.

The Pistons “are not about to do anything” imminently with McGrady, the source said, disputing reports that the team had signed McGrady to a contract. Detroit is considering offering McGrady a one-year deal for the veteran’s minimum of $1.352 million, but the team continued internal discussions on Sunday between the front office and the coaching staff, trying to decide if the 31-year-old McGrady would be a good fit for the team.

Among the factors the Pistons are weighing is the “log jam” at shooting guard and small forward that would result from adding McGrady, reports Aldridge.

Detroit is expected to meet with McGrady’s camp later today. Keep checking this StoryStream for further updates.
