If you happen to be a former NBA all-star looking to score some extra change, all you have to do is go overseas and cash in on your icon status by playing in local professional leagues.
The latest NBA player to do that is former Houston Rockets star Tracy McGrady who decided to sign a one-year deal with the Chinese Basketball Association:
After 15 often spectacular seasons in the NBA, Tracy McGrady has finalized an agreement on a one-year contract with Qingdao DoubleStar Eagles of the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA), sources told Yahoo! Sports.
McGrady, a seven-time All-Star, couldn’t secure a guaranteed NBA contract for this season and decided against trying to make a roster in training camp.
To note, he’ll be the second former NBA All-Star to sign a deal with a Chinese basketball team, the first being Stephon Marbury.
