With lure of insurance offering $8M discount on his expiring $17M salary, Houston exploring Yao Ming trade on several fronts, sources tell Y





Some teams exploring trade for Yao to re-sign him on short deal, or just get cap relief on his expiring deal, sources say.

Makes sense, get any sort of value for a player that is basically done.
His expiring would be useful but I don't see many takers, even with the 8 million off discounts wouldn't a team have to trade 17 million regardless?

If the raps can get $8mil off, purely for cap space, I'd be willing to trade a big portion of our TPE to make this work. Any Houston fans see any young talent they like on the raps to make it work?

but then again, Yao is injured.....Isn't it against league policy to trade injured players?

He is expiring so teams like Philly with players who aren't bad but need to move on like Brand and Iggy would.

Can he even play?

Yao coming off the bench for a title contender would be scary.

basically any good talent at C or SF. we'd pry even take on some back contracts to get a good player (we have 2 TEs worth nearly 6 mil each so we can take on up to 12 mil in back contracts in separate deals)

The Rockets were reportedly talking about an extension with Yao just last week I believe.

I think this is a case where Yao and the Rockets have come to an agreement where they both feel that this is the best move for both, Rockets get players that can help this year and possibly beyond and Yao keeps on rehabbing and will sign an incentive deal with the Rockets after this season, this is under the assumption that he doesn't intend on retiring.

[QUOTE=JerseysFinest;16079388]new york knicks?

If JVG would become the coach of the Knicks, which I think it's possible, that's the only team I see Yao considering besides the Rockets, Yao and Van Gundy are close.

Eddy Curry and Turiaf?


Lol.

It's actually not a bad thought. But why would the Knicks do that? Save $6 mill and change and a chance to resign a ridiculously injury prone center at the end of the year? They're not a team that needs to save money.


Teams that make sense to me are, if Rocket ownership is willing to pay (BTW, I'm assuming Yao is NOT resigning anywhere, simply because it makes the scenarios easier to work out):

Denver, if Melo would stay with Houston. Yao, Jeffries, Battier, Patterson, Hill, 2 1sts for Melo and K-Mart, or something like that. Denver saves a ton of money, as they take give 125% more than they take and then save 8 mill on Yao's insurance. They get 1st round picks Patterson, Hill, and 2 1sts. Might need to add more picks. They would still have Brooks, Martin, Scola, and another 1st soon (thanks to the Knicks trade), and would probably have some cap room. I'd have to think they can sign someone with that cap room to play with Melo in an income tax free state.

Bucks, if Houston likes Michael Redd enough to spend 9 mill getting him, although I doubt that

Raptors for Peja, if his knee becomes payable. But again 6 mill is a lot to pay him.

If Detroit gives up, Prince is an interesting fit for Houston, as is Villanueva.

Phoenix, Carter is a perfect fit in salary, and we all know how much Sarver loves saving money.

Wizards would probably give them a lot of talent if they were willing to take Rashard Lewis. Not Wall obviously, and probably not McGee, but some combination of picks, Blatche, and maybe Young.

Clippers, with the bad Baron contract + picks for Yao, clear some cap room. Some FA might want to sign there with all the Blake highlights.

I doubt Cleveland blows up their team for cap relief, but if they do, they have multiple contracts that would interest Houston: Varejao, Jamison, Gibson, Session, and Williams. With the Jeffries contract added Cleveland can basically just start over by trading a few of those guys. That's actually the option I like by far the most.

Wade>You
12-27-2010, 02:14 PM
I can see the Heat signing Yao Ming next season if he could play 20mpg.

He's basically an upgraded Zyldrunis Ilgauskus.

If Yao wants a chance to win a title and play a contributing role, Miami's the perfect opportunity.

And you know Wade/LBJ would love to have the millions in marketing that would come from the Chinese basketball fans.

The 8 mill isn't saved in cap space, it's just paid for by insurance. Also, the contract is only this year, so it wouldn't do anything for next year.

No, you can waive the physical

Ok, I get that the insurance is gonna cover that portion, but why would insurance not cover if the trade involved TPE money from a previous trade? (in the case of the Raptors, the Bosh TPE from last summer)

Given that it's a massive expiring this year, that'd be the draw to pull the trigger on the deal.

raptors - pass, peja isnt an upgrade

detroit - prince could be interesting but i dont want any part of charlie V

phoenix - pass, we are stacked at SG and hes not an upgrade, why not save the money from yao's insurance?

wizards - in order for us to take rashard off their hands it HAS to include mcgee to give us a starting caliber C

Clippers - meh, idk what they could offer that would entice us enough to take baron. maybe kaman, but thats about it

Cleveland - this one makes the most sense IMO. the rockets have coveted varajao for a while according to rumors and the cavs have wanted yao.

the TPE allows you to take on a players contract without trading anyone in return. essentially you'd take on 9 mil in salaries that you weren't paying before (after insurance kicks in)

dont see teams taking the risk unless they can dump some salary a la philly.

not sure if that insurance question got answered, but yaos full salary still counts against the cap even with the insurance. it just means 8 mil of that money doesn't come from whichever franchise acquires him. for medium and small market teams with more stringent budgets, this is alluring because you are paying 9 millions dollars for an eventual 17 million in cap space.

If Jordan is supposedly wanting to cut cap like they say, I could see him offering Cap'n Jack, Matt Carroll, and Diop for Yao. Not sure if that would interest the Rockets or not but it works on the trade machine.

Insurance would cover it. But why pay the 9 mill when you're currently paying nothing? They pay NOTHING for the TPE, they'd pay Yao 9 mill. And all they'd be getting is Yao's Bird rights.


i would love, love, love that denver deal if it was melo and k-mart (or birdman) and melo signed an extension.

bucks - pass, redd is as bad as yao when it comes to injuries. plus we are kinda stacked at SG

raptors - pass, peja isnt an upgrade

Clippers - meh, idk what they could offer that would entice us enough to take baron. maybe kaman, but thats about it

Cleveland - this one makes the most sense IMO. the rockets have coveted varajao for a while according to rumors and the cavs have wanted yao.

You think Redd, Peja, Charlie V (although I get him with the contract, but still, he's a decent player), Carter, Blatche/Young, and Aminu are all wore than nothing? At the very worst they provide depth, with Kevin Martin having missed a ton of time in his career. At best they are bench players that might be able to contribute at least some minute amount.


I do agree that the Cavs make the most sense though. They make sense for the Knicks too, I feel that the Varejao/Gibson for almost nothing package if the Cavs decide to blow up their team is one of the best values in basketball that can be realistically traded right now. I absolutely love it and wouldn't even mind the Knicks taking it if they feel they can't get Melo.

Who wouldn't? This is the NBA, a league where 1st round picks are traded for cash, anyone who can save money would give up something to do it.

It's just another team looking for some value for an expiring contract. Less value than Peja because at least Peja is on the court, and he didn't get much of anything for that extreme expiring.

no because he doesnt fit next to martin or brooks..
m. redd doesnt make sense..its like trading a $1 for a $1..

They aren't trading Yao for an expiring, he IS an expiring and they're looking for some type of value, which they probably won't receive. Nothing close to what your looking for.

I'm sure N.O went to both us and Charlotte with Peja's deal and they both declined, and the Sixers declined an expiring contract AND Nick Batum for Iguodala. Houston will have to set their sights much lower than top 5 SF level talent for an expiring contract. They could get Rip + Tayshaun maybe.

I actually think Iggy fits great next to Martin/Brooks. They are shooters, he's a slasher that plays good D(which neither of them do). He'll look even better next to Lowry and Martin, since I think he earned the starting role there.

Any team isn't trading for Yao's talent. They are purely trading for the huge expiring contract and only be on the hook for $9 million this season. Any team that wants to get into the Carmello sweep stakes will be interested in this as well as any team that is having financial trouble.

I'm not sure if you can trade injure players or not. I though you couldn't, but now I remember the Raptors traded Vince and Vince wasn't 100% healthy.

for the last time, you can. the other team just has to have knowledge of the injury and consent anyway

Can you even trade a player that is injured? If that is the case wouldn't the Rockets had been able to trade Mcgrady in 2009 at the deadline?

For **** sake JB, you need to let go of your conspiracy theories, yes you can trade injured players.

they couldnt trade mcgrady because once he announced the surgery, toronto no longer wanted him

Toronto?

Either way its BS

New Jersey would have loved Tmac, but anyone that even remotely follows Morey knows VC isnt the kind of move hed make for Tmacs valuable contract.

switch jackson with wallace and throw in something smallish from us to even it out and im happy :)

Nah, we need to get rid of S-Jax's contract more than we need to get rid of GerWal's.

Honestly, I don't see why/how the Bobcats would make a trade with Chicago. The Bulls don't have many expirings, and the only young player that they would probably trade in a deal for Jackson is James Johnson.

Ideal trade for Yao:
Wallace, 2011 lottery pick plus 1-2 bad contract/s for Yao's contract, Jeffries and filler/s
Iggy and Brand plus 1st rd pick 2011 for Yao's contract plus filler

For the ten or so people (INCLUDING THE ONE I QUOTED),that said he'd go to the Heat.

The Rockets have spoken with Sacramento, which has the sort of young talent the Rockets would seek, and Charlotte, which would more likely have to include attractive draft picks along with contracts, according to one individual familiar with the talks.

The Kings have been steadfast in a refusal to deal first-round pick DeMarcus Cousins, despite a rocky start. The Bobcats are more likely to offer players who don’t fit in to the Rockets’ plans, such as Boris Diaw and Nazr Mohammed, along with desirable draft considerations.

Nothing is close, with a deal much more likely closer to the February trade deadline, as with last season’s trade of Tracy McGrady’s expiring contract.

Yao, 30, who attended Monday’s game against the Wizards but declined to speak with the media, was given “a heads up” that his contract could be involved in trade talks before the Rockets began discussions with other teams, according to an individual with knowledge of those conversations.

If Yao got healthy, he would be a huge success in Sacramento. That team would make a fortune with the availability to the Chinese fan base. Charlotte is interesting too.

Teams who are in the luxury tax would trade for him and his expiring.

A team like the Bobcats or Hornets who lack profits would also trade for his name value and the perks that would come from moving his merch, likeness, and so on globally.

Yao even if he can't play anymore is a smart business investment.

I'd give up Brand and Nocioni or something. I don't wanna give Iggy up for a cash break, I'd like some form of talent back. And our first rounder this year is going NOWHERE.

Iggy seems to be one of those guys that doesn't make the team better though.

Yao is nothing more than an expiring at this point, I wouldn't expect too much in return besides a decent prospect and a first rounder.
