Here is an interesting trade scenario I created - think about it before rejecting on face value.

Houston receives Amare Stoudemire and Leandro Barbosa
Phoenix receives McGrady, Carl Landry and Chase Budinger

Houston now has a championship contending team, especially when Yao returns.
Phoenix gets heaps of cap flexibility, 2 good players and a good young player - and at least some compensation for Amare.

And yes the salaries work.

Interesting, but Phoenix can't be that ready to blow up their team? I mean, you can't ensure you get a player of equal talent with the cap space McGrady's contract creates, and it basically says farewell to this season.

It appears that they blow up their team, but they don't.

McGrady is 30 years old, and would be in the hands of the Phoenix medical staff. That is the key. He could become a great player for a few more years.
Landry is a great scorer this season, and basically replaces Stoudemire's production. That is hard to believe, but the numbers prove it. He just isnt as flashy.

Nash
T-Mac
Hill
Landry
Frye

J-Rich
Dudley
etc

Oh I know that Landry can score, but despite everything Stoudemire is, ultimately, far more talented than Landry.

Actually, when I reconsider this trade, I would be a bit hesistant at jumping at this trade. My biggest concern is the loss of the hustle from Landry. I can't find the stats now, but the Rockets were 2nd in the league in offensive rebounding (at one point they were first, then Grizzlies overtook them), and in fact, Landry just squeeks past Stoudemire in offensive rebouding (Landry 2.5, Stoudemire, 2.4) and this is with Landry playing 8 less minutes a game.

we'd still probably get a decent 2010 free agent and we'd still have Mo Williams. and Brand is still a 20/10 player (or more like 17/8 now);he just doesnt fit in well with Iggy, Thad, and the 76ers' offense.

of course, we wouldnt be that good, but then again it's a good start.

Similar to the Knicks/Bulls/Rockets trade:



Rockets get a great player in Butler. Butler and Jeffries have one more year, but if Rockets take Butler, then they are over the cap anyway.....Both expire 2011. James an expirer.

Wizards get two scorers that are both expirers. They also save $2.1 million in rest of years salary and then $2.1 million in luxury tax money.

Knicks get TMac trial for rest of season and clear out Jeffries contract for next year.



I like Bulls trade better, but this could work.

OK, here's a question for the Rockets fans.

An NBA team is allowed to have 15 guys on the roster in total. Obviously, 12 dress for the games and 3 don't, but you can't have more than 15.

When you make a trade, you MUST have open roster spots available for the players coming in. So if McGrady is traded away, for let's say, 3 players, Rockets will need two extra roster spots.

So Rocket fans....what is Houston going to do? Who is going to get cut or moved somehow to open spots?


Comprende?
