View Full Version : Yahoo Says:Rockets looking for trading Partner for McGrady



Highlight

The Rockets continue to offer Tracy McGrady in a trade, but that will be a difficult proposition considering heís the highest-paid player in the league ($23.2 million) and no one has seen him play in nine months. Houston seems willing to take back a longer-term contract for McGrady, but most executives believe his high salary makes it hard to put together a package.

Rockets GM Daryl Morey and coach Rick Adelman donít want McGrady back with the team, and have insisted that he isnít physically ready to return to the lineup. McGrady would love a trade, but knows he must start playing again for it to be possible.

If I were Phoenix, I wouldn't do that. J rich has been playing amazing for Phoenix and he's not injury prone.

He's shooting 50 percent from the field and 44 percent from the 3 point line. I don't think it's worth the risk for Phoenix. They are playing too well to make that kind of trade.

Yeah, I think that parts BS, but the rest of it seems to make sense. There seems to have been a lot of turmoil and conflicting reports.

One article said T-mac & Adelman were angry at one another and had a confrontation, then the next day, "nothing happened"

Idk, I guess it's all speculation.

Yeah its a risk taker but that's a chance I would take. I know jrich has been playing well but is inconsistent, but his good play can even make him better trade bait. Regardless if it doesn't work out we get rid of his big contract and get a expiring. If it works out we get tmac for less money and get better with another free agent.

Did you just invent these because I swear I never heard any reliable source talk about this.
Rockets want young talent, and are ready to take on a bad contract. From what I've heard Les Alexander attended the Sacramento game - which never happens - and the whole staff was there for the Clippers game. Something is going on, I think trading with NYK is dead though, and trading with Chicago just never happened, except if they are giving up a young piece such as Noah.
I'd be glad to take on one of the Clipps or Warriors HORRIBLE contracts though if it could and us someone like Randolph, Biedrins, Jordan or Thornton.

2 Facts - 1. Rockets must trade TMac because that situation is going to wreck a pretty promising season. If he doesn't play so Houston can collect insurance, he'll eventually snap. 2. Houston is only missing a big man. With a decent center that can play uptempo, the Rockets have the pieces and D to be contenders THIS YEAR.

TMac and a 1st for Okur, Korver and Harpring. http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=yk3wl5g Okur and Korver would be huge in that uptempo Adelman system. This trade also gets Houston out of the luxury. Harp and Korver expire so Houston only adds Okur's $10 million contract for next year. Considering Okur can play next to Yao, that's not much to add for a 3 point shooting former all star big. Utah makes this trade so they have the opportunity to re-sign Boozer next season.

The Knicks should trade for him. It will give them the room to sign 2 max players next yr and entince a vet to take the MLE to play with 2 max players:

NYK send:
Curry
Jefferies
Mobley's contract (paid by insurance)

Hou sends:
TMac
Scola

The Rockets get the big men they need and get rid of TMac at the same time. Curry can step in for Yao this yr and then both can spell each other next yr too make sure they stay healthy and are fresh for the playoffs and you can dominate the boards and post with both of them in there together at times.

The Knicks get rid of Curry's AND Jefferies contract AT THE SAME TIME.....a dream come true. Now the Knicks can lure 2 max guys since both Scola and TMac come off the books at the end of the year. It is a win-win for both clubs.

bulls trade brad miller, hinrich, james johnson, and 2010 1st rd pick for TMac.

I would Be big for this deal for Chicago
1) If Healthy, T-mac and Rose would be a great backcourt Tandem

2) T-mac's contract expires while you relinquish the contract of Kirk Hinrich. Result; The Bulls NOT ONLY receiving Dwayne Wade(SG), but another tier-1 Free agent in 2010( Chris Bosh-PF!)

3) By Acquiring Brad Miller, he provides the insurance for the season-injured Yao.

4) Kirk Hinrich, with the possible departure of A. Brooks next season, would be the perfect fit to run the offense at PG for the Rockets.

Roster Outlooks!


Bulls:

C: Joakim Noah/Aaron Gray/Jerome James#
PF: Al Harrington#/ James Johnson*
SF: Luol Deng/ Taj Gibson*
SG: Tracy Mcgrady/John Salmons/J.Pargo
PG: Derrick Rose/Lyndsay Hunter

Rockets:

C: Brad Miller/Joey Dorsey/David Anderson*/Pops Mensah-Bonsu
PF: Luis Scola/Chuck Hayes/Carl Landry/Brian Cook
SF: Shane Battier/Chase Budinger*
SG: Trevor Ariza/ Brent Barry/Jermaine Taylor*/Rashad Mccants
PG: Kirk Hinrich/Aaron Brooks/Kyle Lowry / Sergio Llull*

That made my day, you make the NBA sound like one of those day time soaps.

It would basically be a case of too little too late if that were to happen. He left them when they were on the cusp of winning a championship, that wasnt important enough for him to stay. Now he wants to come back, for what? They definitely arent any closer to winning a championship so what exactly would he have to gain by going back to Phoenix?

Not only that but he helped build up this Atlanta team, how moronic would it be to invested your prime years on a bad team, only to leave now that its actually decent.

Jrich,Tucker,Lopez and the 2.5 milliont trade exception for tracy mcgrady. If the suns medical staff helped out shaq,nash,hill and other guys why not mcgrady.

I like this. Not only do the suns get a mcgrady to make healthy, which is better than jrich, but his contract is a HUGE expiring 23 million dollars for the epic offseason. That is, if amare leaves us, we have alot of options, like resigning amare to a big contract while either keeping mcgrady, or picking up another SG. I really want this to happen. Would probably hurt us a tad this season since he wont be fully healthy and neither is barbs, but if mcgrady can be healed by the suns training staff by mid to late season, and he comes back and fits in the system well, this could be pretty legit. because i could see him coming back averaging between 10 and 20 points a game, then at the end of the season, we resign amare to like an 18mil contract, sign tmac to the MLE, maybe a little more. go a little over the cap for a defensive big at backup center, then our lineup is:

PG: Nash, Dragic
SG: Tmac, Barbs, clark
SF: Hill, Dudley, Clark
PF: Amare, Lou, clark
C: Channing Frye, Jaron Collins, Defensive Big backup

after we resign tmac for MLE and amare, channign frye to a lower level MLE, and dudley to a lower level MLE, we'll be a tad over the cap, but not too much. especially if amare takes like 16 million a year, which based on his performance this season, could be a possibility if he wants to play for the suns.

This seems like a great lineup, not too defensive, but tmac is slightly an upgrade on both ends of the court over jrich, especially if he gets healthy.

Anyone want to email steve kerr?

for this season, it probably isn't worth the chance. but jrich has a large contract that has a few more years left. and tmac's is a 23mil expiring contract, which would mean we'd be able to resign amare and still have some to either resign tmac or another good SG that is similar to jrich.

I'd be glad to take on one of the Clipps or Warriors HORRIBLE contracts though if it could and us someone like Randolph, Biedrins, Jordan or Thornton.

First off, the suns trade could absolutely happen because JRich is only 26, has a sort of bad contract, but can up 25ppg and shoot the 3 well, plus is defending the outside well. he can also be a ball handler and create his own shot. he fits very well in the phoenix system, but the reason i'd want that trade to go down is because jrich's contract is something like 3 or 4 years, but tmac expires 23 mil off the cap this offseason, which is when we have to resign amare or let him walk. and as far as suns fans usually see it, resigning amare or getting bosh is more important than keeping jrich. especially since we do still have Leandro Barbosa, who can do basically the same thing as JRich role wise, and dudley could be the backup SG next year with clark as the starting or backup sf. thats if we cant resign tmac to the MLE.

and i think thats the best that the rockets could get for him.
just saying.
the only thing i'd be worried about is messing up the suns chemistry.

otherwise, the training staff works miracles so i'm not worried about tmacs health because if hes not healthy we just dont resign him and sign somebody else

New York gets:

It works and it gives us only 16.4 Million in guarenteed contracts for 2010. If Salmons opts out that leaves us with 10 Million in guarenteed contracts!!! That leaves roughly 42 million (depending on the salary cap) to play with in 2010.

Line-Up after trade

PG: Derrick Rose/Lindsey Hunter
SG John Salmons/Jannero Pargo

Who could be traded from the Bulls, though? With Tyrus Thomas and Jerome James possibly set to go to NY for Al Harrington, there are not many high contracts left, I think. The Bulls would have to give up too much. Anyways, I just need this team to stay in tact, and I'd love a trade that sees him in a Bulls uniform:

D. Rose
T-Mac
J. Salmons/L. Deng (either person can go to Houston, though I's prefer to keep Salmons)
A. Harrington
J. Noah

Unlikely he'll go to the Bulls, though.

Dude hasnt even been on the court this year. its just what he can do on the court when healthy. As a phoenix fan you sit back and see what the training staff did with amare,shaq,nash, and hill. Then you realize what will happen if they fix up tmac. You can see it like this. If he produces you can sign him for probably less than 10 million. That opens up more money for other free agents to sign here and if it doesn't work out well he is a expiring. Pipe dream but imagine a lineup of picking up lebron or wade

I am shocked that people are willing to trade key pieces of their team/ draft picks for a guy who hasnt been on the court this year.

Even when he did play its not as if the Rockets were better or worse with or without him. What he did was ancient times, its not like your getting the guy in the beginning of the season healthy, you would be getting him mid-season with who knows what kind of lingering injuries.

May I suggest brushing up on common sense?

Teams always trust their staff. Their doctors. Their trainers. So i think its common sense that teams would be willing to trade and add T-Mac, a former all-star. Very talented player who i think could put a contender over the top of possible.

I just want the expiring tbh, any minutes he'd play will be a bonus
Exactly why nobody should be "Shocked" from people wanting Tmac.


i dont want that baby anywhere near Toronto...i doubt he would even report for starters
If Bosh is gone, there is no point in keeping Hedo. This trade helps you guys in the long run, if this season is deemed a failure.

I am shocked that people are willing to trade key pieces of their team/ draft picks for a guy who hasnt been on the court this year.
I cant know what your talking about without the examples, but again, you shouldnt be shocked.


Even when he did play its not as if the Rockets were better or worse with or without him. What he did was ancient times, its not like your getting the guy in the beginning of the season healthy, you would be getting him mid-season with who knows what kind of lingering injuries.

May I suggest brushing up on common sense?

LOL so you think his worth and trade value stems entirely from his ability to perform?

No you may not suggest me brushing up on anything, least not until you learn how the NBA works, and how managers think.

What about this trade
Rockets trade: tmac, Carl landry
Rockets recieves: Brand, Lopez

Suns trade: J-rich, Lopez, Tucker.
Receive: Tmac

Sixers trade: Brand
Sixers receive: Jrich,tucker, Landry.

Rockets lineup
Pg. Brooks
Sg. Ariza
Sf. Battie
Pf. Brand
C. Lopez

Rockets do it cuz they have a good Pf, and defensive big man

Suns lineup:
Pg. Nash
Sg.Tmac
Sf. Hill
Pf. Amare
C. Frye

Need I explain(Suns fan)

Sixers lineup:
Pg. Iverson
Sg. J-rich
Sf. Iggy
Pf. Speights
C. Dalembert

Maybe even package dalembert for other peices . Not to mention they get that bad contract off there hands in brands.

I don't think I would trade Brand just yet, especially for another true SF, the absolute last thing that we need. The Sixers don't have one guy that is a reliable shooter.

I would package Brand if the deal was right, but since he's starting to play better, I wouldn't just give him away unless it was for an expiring contract.

how bout a Houston and NY trade? New York needs a star to sell tickets this year and cap space for the 2010 free agency...Tmac will be perfect for them. plus I think Tmac will do great in NY's offense.

NY trades: Al Harrington, Wilson Chandler, and Cuttino Mobley
Hou trade: Tmac

Josh Howard (11 mil expiring contract), JJ Barea (2 mil expiring contract), and fillers +picks for T-Mac

Kidd
T-Mac/Terry
Marion
Nowitzki
Gooden/Dampier

rockets would never trade him to a in state rival

The Knicks should trade for him. It will give them the room to sign 2 max players next yr and entince a vet to take the MLE to play with 2 max players:

NYK send:
Curry
Jefferies
Mobley's contract (paid by insurance)

Hou sends:
TMac
Scola

The Rockets get the big men they need and get rid of TMac at the same time. Curry can step in for Yao this yr and then both can spell each other next yr too make sure they stay healthy and are fresh for the playoffs and you can dominate the boards and post with both of them in there together at times.

The Knicks get rid of Curry's AND Jefferies contract AT THE SAME TIME.....a dream come true. Now the Knicks can lure 2 max guys since both Scola and TMac come off the books at the end of the year. It is a win-win for both clubs.
so the rockets take on 2 bad contracts and give away a double double machine? no thx

I would Be big for this deal for Chicago
1) If Healthy, T-mac and Rose would be a great backcourt Tandem

2) T-mac's contract expires while you relinquish the contract of Kirk Hinrich. Result; The Bulls NOT ONLY receiving Dwayne Wade(SG), but another tier-1 Free agent in 2010( Chris Bosh-PF!)

3) By Acquiring Brad Miller, he provides the insurance for the season-injured Yao.

4) Kirk Hinrich, with the possible departure of A. Brooks next season, would be the perfect fit to run the offense at PG for the Rockets.

Roster Outlooks!


Bulls:

C: Joakim Noah/Aaron Gray/Jerome James#
PF: Al Harrington#/ James Johnson*
SF: Luol Deng/ Taj Gibson*
SG: Tracy Mcgrady/John Salmons/J.Pargo
PG: Derrick Rose/Lyndsay Hunter

Rockets:

C: Brad Miller/Joey Dorsey/David Anderson*/Pops Mensah-Bonsu
PF: Luis Scola/Chuck Hayes/Carl Landry/Brian Cook
SF: Shane Battier/Chase Budinger*
SG: Trevor Ariza/ Brent Barry/Jermaine Taylor*/Rashad Mccants
PG: Kirk Hinrich/Aaron Brooks/Kyle Lowry / Sergio Llull*

aaron brooks is under contract through next season

could this possibly be used to put a team into the Lebron/wade/bosh race? Seems like you could get a ton of cap space out of no where...

If Bosh is gone, there is no point in keeping Hedo. This trade helps you guys in the long run, if this season is deemed a failure.

Why exactly would T-Mac want to play here after leaving the city because it was "too cold" and couldn't support his craving for media attention?

Don't get me wrong, I'm was/still-am a huge T-Mac fan, I just can't ever imagine him playing for the Raptors again.

I say Bulls trade Salmons and Miller for him or Salmons and Jerome James for him.

this would be a great trade for you guys...

If I were Phoenix, I wouldn't do that. J rich has been playing amazing for Phoenix and he's not injury prone.

He's shooting 50 percent from the field and 44 percent from the 3 point line. I don't think it's worth the risk for Phoenix. They are playing too well to make that kind of trade.

So true. I don't know why so many Suns fans don't like J-Rich.

That trade doesnt help their cap situation, you would have to take Jeffries or Curry off their hands, everyone knows thats not gonna happen so NY is out of the picture.

What makes you think it matters if he were to play another game? This trade is entirely for roster makeover purposes. The main reason behind the Turk signing was to win now and try to appease Bosh. If it doesnt work and Bosh leaves, the Raps are left with a contractual burden that will never justify itself. Hedo is only of value to teams looking to compete, and if you lose Bosh, the Raps wont qualify. They will be paying him all the money they need to free up for the core of the Raps next rebuilding attempt.

TMac to NY for Curry and Mobley
or
TMac to Utah for AK and Harpring

Those two make the most sense. In the NY trade, the Rockets get rid of the TMac headache and save a bunch of money for this year considering the difference in the contracts and Mobley's insurance. Sure, they have to pay Curry next year, but he would be a lot better in Houston's offense than D'Antoni's system. Very low risk for Houston.

In the Utah trade, Houston dumps TMac while picking up a player that is versatile enough to fit with all of the essential players in Houston. They could line up with Brooks, Ariza, Battier, AK and Scola and cause many mismatches. That team would be the best defensive team in the league. Harpring will have to retire so Houston would save on the insurance on his contract.
