Antonio McDyess considering return to NBA - Yahoo! Sports
After sitting out a season in retirement, former All-Star forward Antonio McDyess
is contemplating a return to the NBA.
McDyess, 38, has been working out in Houston and has instructed his agent, Andy Miller, to gauge league interest in him.
"He would consider coming back and I will be reaching out to select teams," Miller told Yahoo! Sports on Thursday night.
Long considered one of the consummate professionals and gentlemen in the NBA, McDyess played 15 seasons before retiring with the San Antonio Spurs in 2011. Several knee surgeries between 2001 and 2004 perhaps curtailed McDyess prime as perennial All-Star selection, but McDyess had several productive seasons as a role player with Detroit and San Antonio before leaving the league after the 2011 playoffs.
In his final season, McDyess averaged 5.3 points and 5.4 rebounds in 19 minutes a game for the Spurs.
For his career with Denver, Phoenix, New York, Detroit and the Spurs, McDyess averaged 12 points and 7.5 rebounds a game. McDyess was an All-Star in 2001, and won a gold medal with Team USA in the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney. He was the second overall pick in the 1995 NBA Draft to the Los Angeles Clippers.
