Tracy McGrady retires from NBA; overseas next? - ESPN

Leaving open the door to play overseas, seven-time All-Star Tracy McGrady retired from the NBA on Monday.
"It's been 16 years playing the game I love. I've had a great run, but it's time for it to come to an end," McGrady said on ESPN's "First Take."
McGrady averaged 19.6 points, 5.6 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game in a career that started in 1997, when he was drafted out of high school.
McGrady signed with the San Antonio Spurs in April after working his way back from injuries but never got on the floor for a team that made a run to the Finals.
McGrady told "First Take" that he still thinks he can play and was disappointed not to get a chance to help San Antonio.
"When we were in the Finals and Manu [Ginobili] was struggling, I felt I could contribute, absolutely," McGrady said.
He acknowledged, however, that Spurs management told him that he was an insurance policy and likely wouldn't play.
Asked to clarify whether he is considering playing in China, McGrady said: "Officially retired from the NBA. Door's still open."
