If the Rockets felt like Shaq was a mistake it'd be a good move. probably not ready to give up on him like that though. Miami should consider going for him to get some more cap space. As an added bonus, he might even be a short-term improvement.

I hadn't read the atricle thought they just bought him out. Since most poster already new he had left the team and asked for a trade.

It he gets bought out or if we could trade Big Z, Boobie and Pick or 3 Million Cash and have The ROckets buy out Big Z. could save Houston a lot of money between Salarie, Luxury Tax and the Cash.

Wont happen but would be nice

Trading T-Mac is easier said than done.

The other team is going to have to give up good talent, or draft picks.

i don't think any of those teams have the assets to match the 22 million dollar salary without messing up what they have already.

Nuggets Kenyon has a big contract. They can start Mcgrady at 2 guard. Bring JR off the bench of explosive scoring even run Mcgrady at some 1.

you have to trade contract for contract

A trade is not going to work, he has a massive cap number. And add on to the fact that no one is going to give up anything of significant value for a broken McGrady..This will end with a buy-out.

Tmac left Orlando in 2004 to be on a contender and play with a dominant big man.
