Tray McGrady is once again a professional athlete in Texas.

This time, however the ball is a little bit smaller, and the crowd will be a little bit smaller as well.

The seven-time NBA all-star signed with the Sugar Land Skeeters of the independent Atlantic League, after being an spring training invitee.

Manager Gary Gaetti told local Fox 26 in Houston, "Tracy is on the team."

"He showed enough progress. He showed enough ability and we're going to see where this goes."

In one outing this spring, McGrady threw one inning, and allowed one run on three hits. 

McGrady was one of the elite scorers in the NBA in the early to mid 2000's, but back injuries derialed his hoops career.

He was last in the NBA last season with the San Antonio Spurs, coming within a game of winning the NBA Finals for the first time in his career. 

The Atlantic League the Skeeters play in is regarded as being between the Double-A and Triple-A level.
