Beijing, Sep 25 (IANS) Former NBA star Tracy McGrady has made it clear that he has no intention of playing in the Chinese basketball league again.

There were reports that the seven-time NBA all-star was in talks with several Chinese basketball clubs over the salary issue, reports Xinhua.

“That’s not the truth because I have no intention of playing in the NBA or the CBA,” McGrady said on Sina Weibo, Chinese equivalent of Twitter.

McGrady played in the Chinese league last season for the Qingdao Eagles averaging 25 points, 7.2 rebounds and 5.1 assists per game. In April, he left China and signed with the San Antonio Spurs.

The 34-year-old declared his retirement from the NBA in August after appearing in six playoff games for the Spurs, who lost the NBA finals to Miami Heat.
