There could be a career change in the works for former Houston Rockets star Tracy McGrady.

On ESPN's NBA broadcast Friday night, former Rockets coach Jeff Van Gundy revealed that McGrady is training to be a baseball pitcher. He's apparently shown enough promise that he's hopeful that he'll get a shot with the Sugar Land Skeeters of the Independent Atlantic League.

McGrady retired from the NBA after 16 seasons. Six of those were with the Rockets.
