The Spurs have picked up veteran swingman Tracy McGrady to fill the roster spot vacated by Stephen Jackson, the team confirmed on Tuesday. Terms of the deal were not released. Yahoo! Sports initially reported the move. Yahoo! also reported before the start of the season that McGrady had worked out with the Spurs, who elected to keep their 15th and final slot open. McGrady, 33, hasn’t played in the NBA since last year, when he averaged 5.2 points in 16.1 minutes for Atlanta. He recently completed his first season in the Chinese Basketball League, averaging 25 points, 7.2 rebounds, 5.1 assists and 1.6 steals in 29 games with Qingdao. McGrady (6-8, 210) has averaged 19.6 points per game in an injury-plagued NBA career that began with Toronto straight out of high school in 1997.
