Default Will The Rockets Shop Yao Ming?

Quote:
It will be interesting to see how involved Yao Ming is in the Rockets' offense for the rest of the season. Yao has felt underutilized in Rick Adelman's read-and-react system, which is the polar opposite of Jeff Van Gundy's low-post oriented attack that involved Yao on nearly every possession. Some league insiders feel that while both Adelman and Yao are among the top coaches and players, respectively, their marriage to each other is doomed to fail. Adelman prefers big men who can step out on the perimeter and facilitate the offense from the elbow, like he had with Brad Miller, Chris Webber and Vlade Divac in Sacramento. Yao is a classic back-to-the-basket player who has never looked comfortable playing so far from the rim.

"Great coach, great player," an Eastern Conference scout said. "Bad mix."

The Rockets have shown no indication that they are open to trading Yao (who has two-years and $34 million remaining on his contract) or firing Adelman (who has one-year and a team option remaining on his original four-year deal). Yao is a cash cow for Houston, and the idea of dealing a 28-year-old franchise center would seem absurd. But several executives feel that the Rockets will see what the market is for Yao at the end of the season.

"They would be crazy not to at least ask around," an Eastern Conference GM said.

A Yao trade would cost a lot for a team to make but it would be worth it if Houston can come across a Great deal for him.

I don't know, the guy has too much market value. The trade would really have to favor the Rockets for me to like it as a Rockets fan.

What would the Rox get in return? It is impossible to trade Super stars because you never get equal value.

Not only that, but how many years does this guy have left anyway? A big body like that will generally fall apart pretty damn fast.

They shouldnt and they better not. You should never trade a player that is the best at their respective position.

Yao is not getting traded.. it wouldn't make sense basketball wise and business wise.. Yao brings in so much money on the business side i shouldn't even have to explain that part..

on the basketball end, there are not a lot of players that affect shots on the defensive end and and control the post on offense... really its a short list...

it is true however that yao ming does not get the same number of touches he is used to.. this season i notice alot of games he is ranging around 14 shots a game... as much as many rockets fan want more shots from yao, it actually helps yao out throughout the long grind of the regular season and trust me when it all counts in the playoffs, he should get his touches...

in summary, no trade

Naw. The Rockets would have to heavily favor themselves in this trade for them to ship Yao.
