So I went golfing yesterday afternoon. While I was duffing it around from one set of trees to the next (“Here comes the putter throw!”), Tracy McGrady came close to reaching a deal with the Chicago Bulls. (ESPN Chicago)
The Bulls are prepared to sign Tracy McGrady if he proves to be sufficiently healthy in a workout Monday and can convince the team he is willing to accept a bench role, one source familiar with Chicago’s thinking said Sunday.“Nothing is done until it’s done, but I expect the Bulls to sign McGrady later this week,” the source said.
Another unknown is what kind of contract McGrady can command from the Bulls. But McGrady has said money and years are not priorities after earning nearly $23 million last season with Houston and New York.
No Celtic fans should lose sleep over losing out on T-Mac. Unless, you know, you really have a thing for super vainy shoulders. Because though T-Mac was once a star, his signing in Chicago only guarantees one thing: The Bulls are losing in the first round of the playoffs.
