Former NBA star guard Tracy McGrady is looking to start a career as a professional baseball player.

McGrady may pitch for the Sugar Land Skeeters of the Independent League. He has been working out with the team.

ESPN analyst Jeff Van Gundy said during Friday night's Oklahoma City Thunder-Brooklyn Nets telecast that McGrady was working out with the Skeeters and that his pitches were reaching 91 MPH on the radar gun.

Houston television station KPRC reported that McGrady was training with former major-league star pitcher Roger Clemens, who pitched for the Skeeters two seasons ago. His son, Kody, is the team's catcher.
