76ers
Bulls
Heat
Knicks
Nets
Timberwolves

These are the only teams that could trade for T-Mac in my opinion. Not from a need standpoint, just based on their contracts.

you have to trade contract for contract

I am pretty sure you can trade up to 3 Million dollars in a trade to make it work under the cap I'll look it up.

After looking it up Cash can be used in a trade up to 3 Million but it is not used to match the salaries but the Cavs still have Wally who they could S+T and still trade that 3 million to allow the Rockets to buy him out with.

Default Re: Rockets and Tracy McGrady agree to try to part ways (Dec 28)

Quote:
The Houston Rockets have granted Tracy McGrady an indefinite leave from the team and will work with his representatives to find a new home for the seven-time All-Star via trade, according to sources close to the process.
McGrady
McGrady

Sources told ESPN.com on Monday that phone discussions between Rockets general manager Daryl Morey, coach Rick Adelman and one of McGrady's agents, Arn Tellem, led to an agreement that both sides would work together in pursuit of a palatable trade before the league's annual trading deadline on Feb. 18.

The Rockets, sources said, are adamant about not buying out the remainder of McGrady's $23 million expiring contract and enabling him to become a free agent during the season. Yet, they also remain unprepared to promise the extended minutes McGrady has been seeking.

Sources said the sides agreed Monday that the best compromise is letting McGrady leave the team to work out on his own in hopes that a deal can be struck and so his teammates and coaches will be spared from the distraction of daily questions about McGrady's status.

This is going to end in a buy out.

IMO, the Knicks have 2nd best chance of landing TMac via trade. As I said in previous thread, I thought there were only 6 realistic trade scenarios out there and out of those 6, only 3 had a decent chance of happening.

I still believe Bulls have best chance with a Brad Miller/Jerome James/filler combo, but Knicks are clearly 2nd best and in the drivers seat, since Knicks can offer many different Chinese menu combinations of players (as long as HOU takes Curry or Jeffries).

C'mon 11.....rolling dice.......



I firmly believe if Bulls fall through, we will see a, Jared Jeffries + expiring talent Houston wants, for TMac.

If they want to save money

Big Z (then buy him out)
Wally S+T 6.5Million (buy out)
3 Million.

If they can't get a deal this would save them
4 Million Salary
4 Million Luxury tax
3 Million in Cash
2 or 3 Million they save on buy out.

If it comes down to money Cavs could make a great deal.

Adjusted slightly. The trade, IMO, can only happen with 6 teams above. And you can probably throw Cavs out, because it would have to be for Shaq.

As long as we get a player(s) whose contract expires after this year I'm happy...cuz to me it really doesn't matter who we get cuz we don't need T-Mac anyway...I mean it would help if we got a good player but I don't want a player who's contract is like 2 to 3 years...
