Tracy McGrady will become a free-agent during the upcoming 2010 offseason when he states that he will sign with whichever team gives him the best chances of winning.

After competing against the Magic in Orlando the other night, McGrady was asked if he would play for his old team again, and his response was “of course”.

“If I was to come back, I was going to rent out (cousin Vince Carter’s) guest house,” McGrady said.

“It is good to see him home, to keep the family in a Magic uniform. A lot of great memories here. The four years I played here were unbelievable years, some great games, great nights, a lot of memories I’ll never forget.”

Although T-Mac continues to state that his first option would be to stay in Houston after season's end, McGrady has also made it public that it’s no longer about the money for him.

Is this a possible hint for the elite teams in the league that they should hop onto the McGrady train and possibly sign him for a veteran's minimum?

If all the the 30-year old wants to do is win and take a cut in pay, why wouldn’t a team like the Magic (especially with his cousin Vince Carter on the team) go out and attempt to sign the once upon a time superstar to a ridiculously low contract?

“I’m excited about becoming a free agent, very excited about that,” McGrady said. “It’s a time in my career it’s all about winning. Stats and all that stuff don’t really matter to me. I’m all about trying to get a chance to win a championship. My first option is definitely Houston over any team. Houston is where I want to be. My wife and kids love it there. It’s home for us. But you can’t ever rule out coming back.”

Never say never, and just like Adidas says, “Impossibly is nothing.”
