I have feeling that Morey is gonna send TMac + Battier to a contender, ie Cleveland, for expiring contract + talent/picks.

This allows Houston to sign a max 2010 FA.

The point is that we "dump" Shane's non-expiring contract so that we create more cap this summer. A contender can offer us some talent/pick for Shane. TMac expiring for expiring expiring.

TMac and Battier are two nice pieces for a contender.

The Rockets would have to decline all team options and not resign Scola there for giving up his Bird right to sign a Max. Even in they trade Battier.

This is easy to say but for who? Come up with a realistic scenario. I don't think there is one....That's like $30 million in contracts to match.

You need to win a ship to keep Bron Bron. Battier will help you do that.

I've got to say, that is a very impressive trade.

As a Knicks fan, I'd hate to lose Wilson, and maybe we could avoid it, if HOU just accepts Shaq. I don't see why HOU ends up with Shaq and Wilson in the deal. That would be amazing for them.

But that's actually a really good trade all around. I'm impressed.


But let's remember....Cavs and Knicks are not doing any business together. I bet Ferry and Walsh haven't talked in at least 18 months.
