Tracy McGrady is considering a comeback to the NBA.
McGrady worked out with Kobe Bryant this summer in California to test the preparedness of his body.
"Yes, I was working out with K.B. to get in shape and see how my body feels," McGrady told Yahoo Sports in an email Tuesday night.
Bryant and McGrady worked out three days a week for a stretch of August.
At least two NBA teams were contacted over the summer about their potential interest in McGrady, but none registered a desire to further explore the possibility, league executives told Yahoo Sports.
McGrady is scheduled to appear in a basketball tour of China in October.
"The comeback will not happen, unless I have the drive whenever I get back," McGrady told Yahoo in the email.
