Tracy McGrady has become a polarizing figure as the trade deadline looms. I think most Pistons fans unequivocally agree he’s been one of the few positive developments this season for the Pistons. But he’s also older, a free agent, has an injury history and plays the same natural position as guys already locked in long-term. McGrady will most certainly want a multi-year deal. So would the Pistons be better served brining him back with a raise, or should they try and deal him for an asset before the trade deadline?
Per Keith Langlois, Joe Dumars seems to prefer the former approach:
Tracy has been extremely good for us here. And we would like to go forward with him. We really like his play on the floor. But also, just as importantly, we like the person that he is. We like the leadership that he brings. We like the veteran, professional approach that he brings. We like all of those things about Tracy. We would like to go forward with him.
Dumars also said that if they did re-sign him, it’s too early to say what position they would favor him playing, point guard or wing.
