Last I heard, Tractor Traylor was having some heart issues, like abnormal heart beats and heart palpitations or something along those lines, but after everything checked out OK, the Nets were going to give him a chance (during last season), but that never happened I guess. I think now he is just playing the waiting game for a team to call. Maybe he should just call it quits.
Traylor, failed a physical with the New Jersey Nets during the off-season because of an enlarged aorta. The condition was discovered when Traylor had an echocardiogram during team physicals — as part of his exam with the Nets.
The procedure was “preventative” and Traylor could have played with the condition but there would have been a 40% chance his aorta would rupture.
Surgery solved the problem.
He will hope to sign up with some team in the 2006 season as a free agent after medical clearance.
