Tracy McGrady(notes) is in good playing shape and proved it in a workout for the Chicago Bulls on Monday, but the team is "unlikely" to sign him for a reason unrelated to his audition, according to ESPN.com.
"McGrady apparently has not convinced the Bulls that he is willing to embrace a secondary role, which is one of two key prerequisites the two-time scoring champ must satisfy to secure a deal from Chicago," the site wrote.
A Bulls source told the site that the team "wanted more time to consider other options." That's never a good sign.
