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?
Mike Harris I'd imagine.

I think it will be very likely McGrady gets moved along with some fillers (in fact, isn't Brian Cook an expirer this season? His contract is, I think, 3 million?).

Butler is more then enough. replace jefferies with a C and we might think about it because were loaded with SG/SF's as it is.

Has a non-guranteed contract. he cant be used in a trade. most likely it'll be either Dorsey or Taylor. most likley Dorsey

I just hope that the Rockets try to trade him alone and don't break up this team they have now. I imagine Adelman is smart enough to do that.

EDIT: I mean the team that plays. Any contracts just sitting on the bench like someone mentioned earlier Brian Cook, can be packaged.
