Tracy McGrady may be ready to make a late bid to become a two-sport athlete.

According to Yahoo! Sports' Tim Brown, the 34-year-old McGrady is thinking about launching a baseball career. Brown said more will be known in the coming days, but that the Florida native was interested in pitching.

McGrady last played in the NBA in the 2013, appearing in just six games with the San Antonio Spurs during the NBA Playoffs.

A veteran of 15 NBA seasons, McGrady appeared in 938 career regular season games with the Toronto Raptors, Orlando Magic, Houston Rockets, New York Knicks, Detroit Pistons and Atlanta Hawks.

Brown broke the news via Twitter, later adding that McGrady played baseball in high school and "apparently was a semi-regular at Braves camp in Orlando when he was with the Magic".

The Atlanta Braves' spring training home is Champion Stadium located at the Wide World of Sports Complex at Disney World in Greater Orlando.

Brown chimed in with his own opinion shortly after breaking the news, tweeting: "Personally, on T-Mac and baseball, why not? He's 34, loves the game, played as a prep, and would be great gate in Indy ball."
