What teams would be willing to take on Tracy Mcgrady and his expiring contract?

anyone involved in chasing the 2010 dream
any that need to shed salary over the next year(by economy or to get under tax)
any that want a "big name" to help draw fans

so the question is really;who wouldnt;besides those trying to go further than first round playoff fodder and the rockets?

The Knicks.

Mcgrady for Al Harrington and Eddy Curry

Rockets get a Center who might be able to do something and a player that can help replace Artest and New York gets another expiring.

I could see the Knicks. McGrady would probably even fit in with their system.

That makes the Heat even worse.

They would have pretty much trade Marion for Mcgrady.

I heard Eddy Curry and Cutino Mobley (mostly paid by insurance) for T-Mac. It was just a rumor though.

It's not like Jermaine has been very effective and they could try trading Blount/Haslem's expiring contracts to get a better big man.

Chalmers/Wade/McGrady/Beasley/Chandler=Championship

They wouldn't have a solid big man if they did that trade.

And T-Mac misses more games than O'neal.

Maybe the Kings??? They are in rebuilding mode:

T-Mac- $23 mil for Kenny Thomas $8.5 mil, Nocioni $7.5 mil & Abdur-Rahim $6.6 mil

Thomas and Abdur-Rahim expire after the 09-10 season and Nocioni is a decent fit for Houston.

Wasn't that long ago we were looking at one of the best players in the league in Tmac, sure there was a few injuries but at some point you have to play through it, I honestly think he just dosn't want it bad enough, excluding of course the micro fracture surgery, that will take anybody out for a while. Having said that who takes on this way over paid contract, knicks and griz come to mind but once he is a free agent he will never see an offer over MLE again...

I don't like it much, but Peja did work for our Coach.

Brooks style is similar to CP3 so he would get a lot of easy baskets (Chandler).

They wouldn't have a solid big man if they did that trade.

And T-Mac misses more games than O'neal.

Beasley is a 20/10 caliber player. Even if he is undersized.

And T-Mac has missed fewer games the O'Neal over their career.

or

B. Get no value for T-Mac.

Personally, I'd take option B.

I would take T Mac in a heartbeat over the combination of Jackson and Maggette. T Mac gets a bad rap, people say hes injury prone, well you're back would be pretty bad too if you had to carry that Orlando squad and Yao-less Rockets to the playoffs every year. Theres only so much carrying one man can do. He's still better then the Kobe Bryant that won those 3 rings with Shaq.

simpsona
07-10-2009, 02:27 AM
The only way any team should pick him up is if they want to free up cap space. He isn't a reliable player anymore. He stays injured. So I guess I agree with most of the other people on here. The knicks.

superkegger
07-10-2009, 02:30 AM
I doubt anyone is taking on Tmac's contract, not at this point. Maybe at the trade deadline, but you're going to have no one scrambling to get an injured guy, who you will pay 20 million to not play. If he can come back and be productive, they might be able to offload him, but i doubt it.

I highly doubt that. Nobody knows how McGrady is going to come back from his surgery. Microfracture surgery at that age is very tough to come back from, just ask Jamal Mashburn, Chris Webber, and Allen Houston.

If the Rockets can't get a young, good peice for him, than they should just let it come off the books. They will have a down year, get a decent pick, and Houston is attractive to free agents, so they could be right back in the thick of things the year after next

07-11-2009, 06:23 PM
Tmac is still a really good player in this league when healthy and can do everything on the court that you need. He may not be a superstar at this point in his career but he can your 2nd or 3rd option on your team. As long as he is not your go to guy nightly, your team is getting a huge upgrade.

Miami will take him and we will be pretty dangerous.

he is 29, coming off microfracture surgery, and has a vagina. I really think the days of McGrady contributing for long stretches is history. Now, if he will take a mid level somewhere for a couple of years, he might be worth the risk. I don't think so, but maybe

Any team that is looking to shed salary. Mcgrady wont be back until at least half way through the season, and when he does come back there is no guarntee that he will even be effective. In my opinon i do not believe that he is going anywhere, HOuston is just going to let his contract expire as they should.

also i dont see why people are saying the knicks would be the only teams interested. do you know how many teams are looking for cap space in 2010? mcgrady's contract will be the biggest one coming off the books. i mean look at the pau deal. i dont see something of that caliber happening, but you can still get good players for a contract like mcgrady's

Milwaukee Trades: Michael Redd + Dan Gadzuric

Philadelphia trades: Samuel Dalembert

I think we should just let it expire. We'll have a ****** year, but we'll get a nice lotto pick. Hopefully Yao comes back and we use the jack from T-Macs expiring contract, which is the biggest in the league, to get one of the superstar FAs. We end up with Yao, a top 10 pick and a D-Wade level player. Best case scenario IMO. Don't take some ****** deals from other teams for a stop gap.

No the Knicks are trash and the players are garbage, even if you get the TMac contract the Knicks are still going to be so bad that LeBron will look at that situation and laugh. Is LeBron supposed to be your 1-6 option? You won't get both LeBron and Wade, and if you can't get both you probably won't get either one of them. Knicks fans stop with the ******** trades, because it just shows how sad you really are.

and i think this is VERY VERY realistic. he said it himself on the Jim Rome show...he was down because of alll the injuries, and he lost the passion for th egame for a bit. he appologized etc...and he said he is feeling great and best of all he got the passion for the game back BIG TIME, so I predict he will come out hungry next year when he gets on the court, and he will be in BEAST MODE. I believe that is very likely.

Lo Pronto made this trade sinareo in the jazz fourm and I think its great for all teams involved
Bulls get Boozer and Brent Barry
Rockets get AK and Tyson
Hornets get Tyrus, Jerome, Chicago's 2010 1st
