Tracy McGrady signs one-year deal with Detroit

The Detroit Pistons have signed Tracy McGrady for a one-year, $1.3 million deal, sources have told Yahoo's Adrian Wojnaroski.

According to Woj:

After internal discussions over the weekend, and conversations on Monday with agent Arn Tellem, the Pistons and McGrady came to terms on what team officials believe is a low-risk, high-reward proposition: McGrady, 31, a full year removed from micro-fracture surgery on his left knee, will play for the NBA's veteran's minimum. After saying all the wrong things and turning off the Chicago Bulls, McGrady sold the Pistons on his willingness to play whatever role asked of him off the Detroit bench, sources said.

Wow, for the minimum? Do you think the Wizards would have used him as a back-up? Apparently there wasn't much interest. Hope his knee holds up.
