After 16 NBA seasons and nearly 1,000 total regular-season and playoff games, Tracy McGrady has decided to call it a career. T-Mac officially announced his retirement on ESPN’s First Take today, according to the show’s Twitter account.

McGrady, 34, signed late in the season with the Spurs, joining the team in time for its playoff run, though he didn’t play much in the postseason. Back in June, we heard that he was expected to consider retirement this offseason, but as recently as two weeks ago, a report suggested that the veteran swingman was still considering pursuing a deal in the NBA or in China. It’s not clear if McGrady didn’t get any offers he liked, or whether he simply changed his mind, but either way, it appears his playing career is over.
