McGrady Ready to Revive Career in Detroit

Tracy McGrady doesn't see himself as an old, broken-down basketball player.

He's hoping that his free-agent deal with the Detroit Pistons will help him prove that to the NBA. The 31-year-old McGrady signed his one-year, $1.3 million contract Monday.

Knee problems have limited McGrady to just 65 games over the past two years, and he struggled to make an impact last season with New York. In 24 games with the Knicks, all starts, he averaged just 9.4 points.

McGrady knows that years of back problems and microfracture surgery on his knee mean that he won't be the same high-flying superstar who led the NBA in scoring in 2002-03 and 2003-04. But he still thinks he can be an impact player.
