GM Neil Olshey says that Tracy McGrady's workout with the team "went well," but added that "[McGrady] will continue exploring his options and so will we."
In other words, it doesn't sound like anything is happening imminently. McGrady could still end up with the Clippers, but regardless of where he lands, we're not expecting a return to major fantasy value.

There have been reports that he's in really good shape and has been working out really hard on that same regiment as last year.

T-Mac needs to be looking to hitch with a contender, not an 8th seed hopeful like the Clippers.

By the way, I only watch Clippers games when I'm home late and they're the only game still on because they start later than most other teams. Just thought I'd share that.

If the Bulls can't swing a deal for Rudy I would welcome T-Mac.

Seems like I have missed the news or they'll just standing pat and watching their players leaving(smith, blake, outlaw)

Not necessarily. TMac is on record stating that he'd like to play with Kobe, if that was a possibility. However, Mitch may have turned a blind eye to TMac in favor of filling one of the Lakers other more pressing needs...like a back-up center.

Either way, I hope that TMac is better than advertised and healthy enough to compete for some team. I hate seeing that much talent fall short of its goals.

T-Mac has said he would love to play for Chicago.

They're content to win 25 games per season :)

They've signed Randy Foye and Ryan Gomes and have added their three draft picks, Al-Farouq Aminu, Eric Bledsoe and Willie Warren.

If they sign T-Mac I think they'll have a log jam at the 2-3... They'll have Eric Gordon, Randy Foye, Willie Warren, Al-Farouq Aminu, Rasual Butler (might be a FA, not sure), Ryan Gomes and T-Mac.

That's far too many players for only two positions. Pretty much all of them will want PT aswell...

Rasual Butler is a FA, but everything else you stated is true. There would be one hell of a log jam there.

If Rudy doesn't end up in Chicago, I expect T-Mac to be playing there.

TMac joining Rose and Boozer. This is madness!!! When will his decision be made?

No word yet. He's "exploring" his options.

I think players such as Shaq, AI, and T-Mac are a last resort for teams. Teams are trying to grab other players through free agency, or through trades before they cut a deal with these vets.

So many of these title contenders or near title contenders are afraid of ruining their teams chemistry. They'd also like to have a more long term solution, so they're looking for younger pieces for their teams.

T-mac has been working out in chicago with famous trainer Tim grover and has gone on record he wants to play with the bulls. T-mac as the bulls 9th man isn't bad.

At his peak, McGrady was never known as a great defender. After several knee surgeries, it seems as if he's lost at least one step, probably two. Does that sound like the type of player that would fit right into new Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau's system? Probably not, but i don't think the bulls were thinking defense when they signed watson and korver

Yeah McGrady's never been a defensive guy. Not sure where the **** you got Watson isn't a good defender though:confused::confused: Because he is.

watson is a good defender but that's not why the bulls signed him, they signed him for his offense to back up rose

No thats not my OPINION, that is a fact. he was KNOWN to be thier best defender. Thats what they pulled him off the bench for, not to score, but to defend mostly. I watched the NBA then and knew that. I, unlike you, are not pulling made up FACTS out of my rear end.

You just said Watson wasn't a good defender, but I call you out and he is now? I follow the Bulls just as close as anyone else on PSD, I know what Im talking about, don't give me **** like The Bulls signed Watson for his offense to back up Rose. To the Ignore list you go.
