Clippers update: T-Mac on deck

July 14, 2010 |  9:03 pm

Well, not exactly on deck ... but the Clippers are bringing in the once-great and current free agent Tracy McGrady next week for a workout in Los Angeles.

That was the word from Clippers General Manager Neil Olshey, who, in a telephone interview from Las Vegas, called the swingman "one of the four or five great offensive talents in the history of our game."

McGrady, a seven-time All-Star, has fallen on hard times, getting hit by a rash of serious injuries. He played only 30 games last season, finishing with the Knicks after getting traded to New York from Houston in a three-team deal in February.

On the way to the Clippers? Still, a long long way from happening.
