Tracy McGrady is a current free-agent, but nobody really has payed him much attention. Primarily, because LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Amare Stoudemire, Carlos Boozer, Dwayne Wade etc became free-agents too. Secondly, the fact that he is past his prime and has had some character issues.

Add this to the fear that he is cursed, never getting past the first round in the NBA playoffs and you have a seven-time all star looking for a job. (I was joking about that last reason—well kinda joking).

On Wednesday, McGrady tweeted his options writing, "clippers, bulls, lakers, heat....but that could change by the morning...lol..this is the NBA."

Of those four, only the L.A. Clippers have had him workout for them. However, TNT analyst David Aldridge said that a source told him that the Chicago Bulls will have him work out next Monday.

So would T-Mac be a good fit for the Bulls if he and the Bulls reached an agreement?

This is a very intriguing question from afar, on one hand you have a former all-star and shooting champion that has stated he has some gas left in the tank, and in the other you have a 31-year old player that has been cut short of the last two seasons because of injuries.

If you keep digging, you'll see that T-Mac hasn't played defense for a very long time and he rarely thinks about the team and usually is thinking about "me, myself and I."

So this pick-up would be exactly the opposite of what the Bulls look like they are trying to do in this offseason, a more defensive unit that would give minutes up for the better of the team.

Do you really think McGrady would like to be the 11th or 12th man on the roster?

Didn't think so.

Yes, he is a big man that can shoot and we do need a shooter that can play the post, but T-MAC is not the answer, I don't know other options but maybe get Sean May or Tim Thomas.

Or even try to reach a trade.

You tell me ,what do you think the Bull should do next?
