I suppose, but if the intent it is to get over the cap, adding Jeffries salary might not do it.

It does seem impossible, but it is the right thing to do. I love the guy, but he's getting old, and Landry is outperforming him.

2011 is the date Rockets should target. Yao, Battier, Landry, and JEFFRIES would be all off the books and Rockets could be TRUE free agent players. Not next year......

The cap will most likely drop again, there are not as many players available, Landry and Lowry will both need new deals, so that isn't a particular ideal situation either.

Also, the Rockets have a chance to WIN, RIGHT NOW!!!! Don't you want to win? Rockets need size in Miller and Jared. Miller helps Rockets tremendously for playoffs. Don't you even want to TRY to win???? Amazing......

We already have Miller, his name is David Andersen. Jared is a pile of dog sh.t and wouldn't get any minutes.

Hmm, I didn't know all that about the cap, thanks. Still, it's a terrible trade simply from a BASKETBALL standpoint.

From a financial standpoint it isn't. The Rockets are over the luxury tax as of now and I'm sure we want to get under it. This deal, although not the greatest, accomplishes two things with the players we get.

First of all, Brad Miller is nice insurance to have for the remainder of the season. He is a great passer, a good shooter and a decent rebounder. He also brings veteran savvy and also gives us a good option just in case one of our other big men get injured. His salary comes off the books this summer and we don't have to worry about him after this season.

Jeffries, although not a great player, will also give us length and more depth. Even if we don't play him, his contract is valuable for next season since it is small. Usually with bigger contracts, it is a lot tougher to find buyers, but with a contract such as Jeffries it is a nice sized contract that we can dump on some team next season that might be looking for financial relief.

We aren't going to be signing any key free agents this season unless we have good pieces for a sign and trade. Jeffries provides such an option for a sign and trade since his contract is relatively small and expiring. Attached that with other young pieces in this team and you might have a better chance at grabbing an all star talent.

Yeah I know the guy is 29 going on 40.
And man, when he loses all that athletic ability and isn't outjumping everyone for rebounds or leaving defenders in the dust with his lightning speed anymore it's gonna be ugly.

More seriously Scola is a stud and resigning him is mandatory.

I don't think anybody has worse ears than McGrady. Sorry Rocket fans, but this guy just does not know how to listen, I really think it's best for both sides to be done with one another.

I know, it makes our side look bad. I really think both sides have handled themselves wrong, but I really feel the Rockets organization should have been cordial about the whole thing. I have a feel Rick Adelman let his feelings get in his way way too much. Of course, T-Mac is to blame as well. Especially after last year.

A pretty darn good analysis on whether McGrady will be traded or not.

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/3...rady-situation

I seriously recommend anybody who's making trade proposals for T-mac (ahem bagelred) to read this article.

Morey also adamantly said he will not buyout McGrady. Let's see him disgrace TMac, their beloved franchise player, by not playing him AND not trading him. You think that's gonna happen?

It's either a buyout, which Morey just said won't happen, or a trade, which Morey said he'll try to do. Which is more likely?

They did that to McGrady for the past 2 months, and just sent him home for 2 games. There's no reason why Morey must make a trade, if what he gets in return is garbage. Why should there only be 2 options, a buyout or trade? He could easily just sit on McGrady's contract and just let it expire. Hell, in the article, it made the point that the Jazz tried to trade Boozer as much as possible, but guess what, he's still with them.
