McGrady nears deal with China club

AFP-Jiji

SHANGHAI — Longtime NBA star Tracy McGrady is close to sealing a deal to play for Qingdao DoubleStar in China with an announcement expected within days, a team official said on Tuesday.

The team in the eastern city of Qingdao has reached a verbal agreement with the seven-time NBA All-Star and was waiting for McGrady to sign a contract, Qingdao's general manager Sheng Xishun told AFP.

"Both parties have reached a verbal agreement," Sheng said. "The contract is for one year." He declined to give financial details.

McGrady , 33, is familiar to Chinese fans through his years playing alongside the now-retired Yao Ming — one of China's most popular athletes — with the Houston Rockets.
