Good news for Atlanta hawks as they have a new pro player, Tracy Mcgrady.
ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith reported that he signed up for a one year veteran minimum deal.
Mcgrady is a seven time All-time star. But through the years, he had different physical problems, that even if he is a dominant player, he is now turned into a part-timer.
Last season, he was in the Detroit Pistons, he averaged 8.0 points and 3.5 rebounds in 72 games.
The Pistons is his third team in the past two years.
This news is likely a result from Atlanta’s top player Jamal Crawford not to renew his contract in the Atlanta team.
Back in 2002-2003, Mcgrady was Orlando Magic’s top player. He averaged 20 points per game for eight seasons and had won back to back scoring titles.
One of his biggest problems was his persistent back injury that slowed him down. He also had left kneeÂ and left shoulder injury.
In 2008-2009, he only played to 35 games with the Rockets and another 30 the next season in Houston Rockets and New York Knicks.
After that, he moved to Detroit and determined to show that he is still capable of making it in a full season. Even if he is a focused player, he is now only knows as a role player and not a dominant player.
Last Season was a strong team for the Hawks, they made it through the second round on the play offs.
But it will be hard for this season if Jamal Crawford will not be part of their team.
Jamal Crawford is now placed as the sixth man in 2010. He averaged 14.2 per game last season.
