    Yes I think they should. Yao Ming has proved nothing in the NBA but the fact that he cant stay healthy a full season. He is the China version of Greg Oden.

    What value does he have coming off an entire season missed?

    His value is currently low. The Rockets won't be able to net a decent package for him because of his age and health. They should just keep him. They're thin up front and are in need of a big man.

    He has good value. They got Kevin Martin for T Mac. Yao will be in the last year of his contract next year so they can get some good players for him if they wanted to.

    From a basketball standpoint, Yes. Yao will be 30 this year and he already is injury prone and when he returns it would probably be unlikely for him to be a 20/10 guy. Maybe somewhere near there but not on an Elite level. Houston is building a competitive team, and nobody knows how good they will be with having to run the offense around Yao.

    From a business standpoint, Hell No. Yao rakes in so much money from China for the Rockets that they would lose tens of millions in money from China.

    Yao's going to retire a Rocket.

    Exactly.

    Specifically a West Coast team like the Clippers, Warriors, or Kings. Theres such a big Asian population in California that Yao's presence will guarantee more ticket sales throughout the season along with the revenue from China. It also raises revenue for Yao's teammates because most Asians dont know anything about basketball, just look at China almost coming close to voting an injured T-Mac into the ASG, 2 years in a row.

    However, Houston would be crazy to give up all that money from the Chinese fans.

    Can't get equal trade value for the best center in the game.
    Dwight Howard is a Top 5 Center of All-Time, no one in this league can touch him.

    The Orlando Magic are a dominant contender and are a better franchise than I ever thought possible.

    Raph12 is always right.

    I agree. Yao (if he stays healthy) is a huge commodity- even if they don't use him in the offense. Just having him on the floor to rebound and take up a big defender is a huge benefit, not to mention that he has a great shooting touch. They don't need him to be a 20-10 guy with the acquisitions they made- especially Martin. They need him to be a 15-10 guy playing 30 minutes, which is entirely doable (even for a 40 year old Shaq). Barring freaky and scary injuries like the one he just had, he will perform. There's tons of players that had serious injuries that have performed at a high level (Kenyon Martin, McDyess, Carter, CP3 when he returns to name a few.

    If a deal does go through, rest assured they'll get everything they need and want- from a business perspective alone he's worth his weight in gold x 10,000. And they have one of the best (if not THE best) GM in the business.

    No.

    The Rockets got Kevin Martin who's a master of drawing fouls and getting into the bonus. Once in the bonus, a healthy Yao is the best player in the NBA.
