Former NBA star Tracy McGrady has signed a deal with World Poker Fund Holdings, Inc., a leading developer and operator of online and event-based social gaming platforms and brands.
McGrady will become the company’s Brand Ambassador, according to MarketWired.
The endorsement deal focuses on marketing and outreach support with user acquisition and assistance with on-boarding more NBA and professional athletes to CelebrityWorld.com.
“I’m excited to be working with the WPFH team; the model is simply genius. Celebrityworld.com is truly the next generation of the online gaming experience in terms of being able to directly interact with fans in a virtual world and lifestyle… and the games you get to play on there are just fun. It’s the right brand, the right social platform, at the right time. I’m looking forward to growing with the company and all its exciting ventures,” McGrady said, commenting on the deal.
McGrady retired from the NBA, following a rather bleak short stay with the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Playoffs in 2012-2013. He played in 15 NBA seasons, 4 of them with Orlando Magic.
McGrady was a 7-time NBA All-Star and led the NBA in scoring for 2 straight seasons (2002-2003, 2003-2004) with 32.1 ppg and 28.0 ppg respectively. He was also the NBA’s Most Improved Player in 2001. He nearly won his first NBA title, but the Spurs lost to the Miami Heat in an epic seven-game finals series in 2013.
McGrady averaged 19.6 points, 5.6 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game in a career that started in 1997, when he was drafted out of high school.
