Another "Rocket" may be joining the Sugarland Skeeters. Former Houston Rockets player Tracy McGrady could be returning to the Houston area as a professional baseball pitcher. 

The 34-year-old retired from the NBA last season after playing with the San Antonio Spurs.  Sources say the seven time NBA All Star is working out with the Skeeters and has been clocked pitching over 90 miles per hour.  McGrady has been training with former Astros pitcher Roger Clemens, also known as the Rocket. 

Clemens briefly pitched for the Skeeters in 2012.  Sources say that if McGrady continues to do well during his work outs, he could be signed with the Skeeters by the time their season starts this spring.
