Tracy McGrady may have played his last game in the NBA, but that doesn’t mean he still won’t continue to try to cash out.
McGrady put up all-star numbers in the China Basketball Association, and according to Pro Basketball Talk, he may return to China to continue to collect big checks.
In a pre-game press conference in Nanning, McGrady said he might come back to China Basketball Association (CBA) league despite its under par competitive environment.
“For those who have played years in NBA and still want to prolong their career like me, CBA is a great alternative,” said McGrady who played a whole CBA season before he joined the Spurs, clutched 25 points, 7.2 rebounds and 5.1 assists per game, and his all-star performance help him sustain his highly respectable status in China.
But he didn’t reveal much about the next stop of his career. “I am happy to be home with my wife and kids. But if possible, I may come back to CBA. I haven’t really thought about that,” said McGrady.
McGrady may not be able to compete on an NBA level anymore, but he’s still revered in China, and can get a nice check if he choose to.
