Bulls To Work Out McGrady

Remember back in 2000, when Tracy McGrady was the most sought after free agent and the Bulls scared him away with a welcoming party that included Benny the Bull and a brass band? Back then, T-Mac chose to team up with fellow free agent Grant Hill in Orlando instead. A decade later, McGrady is again a free agent but coming off a couple of injury-plagued seasons. This time, it's McGrady who's pulling out all the stops to try and land with the Bulls.
McGrady and his agent, Arn Tellem, appear close to scheduling a workout with the Bulls for Monday. Still, it appears his signing with the team is a longshot. Even if healthy, T-Mac's style of play won't mesh well with new coach' Tom Thibodeau's defensive emphasis. But maybe, if he's willing to play for a minimum salary and understand he's now a reserve it might be worth signing the former All-Star for some offensive spark off the bench.
