Atlanta Signs T-Mac

In Free Agency on December 9, 2011 at 9:11 pm

ESPN reports

Tracy McGrady has agreed to a one-year, veteran-minimum deal with the Atlanta Hawks, a source close to the situation told ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith.

Good signing for the Hawks. Tracy McGrady gives Atlanta nice flexibility off the bench with his versatility, ball-handling and passing ability.

Lineup flexibility

  • Hinrich is a weak passing PG. Having a playmaker of Tracy McGrady’s ability alongside him is a great aid.
  • Allow Atlanta to play with two playmaking wings in Joe Johnson and Tracy McGrady. Gives Teague or Hinrich more freedom as scorers at PG.
  • Go huge on the perimeter with Tracy at PG, JJ at SG and Marvin Williams at SF.
