The Atlanta Hawks have signed two-time NBA scoring champion Tracy McGrady to a one-year deal for the veteran minimum. McGrady is with the Hawks for the team's first practice on Friday, wearing No. 1. His contract is believed to be for the veteran minimum. The 6-foot-8 McGrady is expected to provide depth at shooting guard and small forward. His signing has added to speculation the team will not be able to re-sign high-scoring sixth man Jamal Crawford. The 32-year-old McGrady, a seven-time All-Star, has been slowed by various physical problems in recent years. He averaged 8.0 points last season for the Detroit Pistons, his third team in the past two years. He won back-to-back scoring titles with the Orlando Magic, including his career-best average of 32.1 points in 2002-03.

Atlanta Hawks: Camp Report Day 2: Still tax-strapped
