Count Tracy McGrady among those recruiting LeBron to New York.
“He’s a good friend,” McGrady told the New York Post before the Cavs shelled the Knicks in Cleveland. “He wanted to see me back on the basketball court and congratulate me on being back. I sent him an email that said: ‘I’m in the Big Apple. I’ll see you here next season.'”‘
LeBron’s answer to T-Mac? “LOL.”
McGrady has an expiring contract worth $23 million and has said he would consider playing for less if it would help the Knicks land a couple of max-contract free agents.
The question is, Will LeBron want to leave Cleveland?
“(He) could go either way,” McGrady told the Post. “On one hand, he could say I gave you all something you never had, what you wanted. On the other hand, I’ve been here seven years, I tried and it just didn’t happen. I want to start fresh. It could go either way. Nobody knows what the guy is thinking. Let’s just sit back and enjoy and wait till July 1st.”
