I really hope McGrady goes to the Nuggets. him Melo Billiups Nene and JR if he shows up will take the Lakers to 7 and then it is all about who makes plays at the end will decide who wins.

There is so much wrong with thsi whole thread i want to reach through my computer and strangle so many of you, especially Raj.

1. TMAC is not some throw-away, us rocket fans need to appreciate what he has done for the organization (i know there have been a couple of people saying this but just not enough)

2. Why would the rockets trade for big Z then buy him out? if we are lucky enough to land a decent center such as big Z then the rockets should keep him as a one year replacement for yao..... what does houston get out of that deal besides the 3 million to help with the buyouts.... that cavs fan poster is stupid as all hell.

3. rockets must get young talent or a usuable expirer for the year or someone that fits the longterm plans of the franchise in order to trade him.......

many teams will be calling for his services. the rockets will not have to settle for the knicks BS trade proposal.

Alright, so now the Rockets have:

1. Declined a trade with Wizards, Arenas for Mac.
http://m.espn.go.com/nba/story?storyId=4777423&top

Quote:
ESPN.com reported Saturday that the Washington Wizards had reached out to the Rockets in an exploratory manner about a possible Gilbert Arenas-for-McGrady swap, but Houston has no interest in such a deal. Arenas ranks as one of the league's most difficult players to move with four seasons left after this one on a mammoth $111 million contract and a history of knee problems to rival McGrady's.

Also:
Quote:
One source said that the Rockets' anti-buyout stance is so deeply rooted that they plan to keep him on the payroll even if a deal can't be struck before the trading deadline.

So it looks like:

2. A buyout is very, very unlikely.

3. According to a poster on the Clutch BBS, McGrady has been traded for Richardson and Tucker, although salaries don't match and he has yet to have a credible source apart from 'AZ radio', so it could well be simple BS.

LOL, washington tried to just dump Gilbo like that... maybe if they can throw in Butler in the deal, Rockets might do it...

and idk why the Suns would do that deal (if it's true)... sure we might be able to revive T-Mac, but he wont be anymore of an impact player than JRich at this point of time... i understand TMac's expiring and we can be players in the 2010 FA market, but we're having a good season, we should try to get better and make a push to go deep into the playoffs... if we do, i like our chances better to land a big FA, at least we've proven we can win games...

A one legged, motivated T-Mac is 'better', but a T-mac who only plays 7 minutes a game and doesn't really want to be there? I'd definitely take Richardson. To be honest, I'd rather let McGrady expire, because I really want the Rockets to develop the young talent they have (looking especially at Budinger and Landry), and trading for a star just takes shots away from them.

I rather look at the Heats Rummored offer of O'neal for McGrady. there both gonna come off the books at the years end, plus O'neal gives us a Solid inside Prescence and Size. Something we currently lack.
