Stephen A. Smith reports that the Hawks and forward Tracy McGrady have agreed on a one-year deal for the veteran minimum.
The Hawks still aren’t commenting on the report and McGrady’s agent, Arn Tellem, has not returned a call. Teams have been able to discuss contract parameters since last week but are not allowed to agree to terms with free agents or sign them until Friday.
(Update: Source confirms McGrady plans to sign with Hawks.)
McGrady, 32, played in 72 games for the Pistons last season.
