    Default Could T-Mac be on the move?

    There's a lot of talk on the Rockets' RealGM board speculating that a "big" trade is about to go down (possibly w/ the Knicks) and that Yao is the only player on Houston's roster that is untouchable. They're also speculating the possiblity of adding Spree. They cut Dion Glover today, which opens up a roster space. Stay tuned.

    Sounds like they are getting desperate, they want Artest.

    Apparently, JVG says they need "dogs" (sound familiar)? Would anyone here want to trade Ron in a deal for T-Mac? (Btw, I wouldn't).

    They're not going to trade T-Mac. And especially to the Knicks - the Knicks could only offer expiring contracts, and why would Houston all of a sudden decide to go back into rebuilding mode after acquiring a solid duo in TMac and Yao?

    That's hillarious.

    Look for some tweaks with some of their older guys and fringe players.

    I won't give creedence to a trade rumor until the ink is dry. But T-Mac would make any GM's head turn.

    My worry is that for being so talented AND clutch, his W/L isn't exactly spectacular.

    The Spurs have lost 3 games so far!

    We should make an offer for Duncan while the getting is good - would anyone trade Samaki for him straight up?

    The Rockets have lost 12 (that's four times as many as the Spurs) games...

    TMac is really really good, a superstar. Thing is, can we count on him to be healthy?

    I don't know if I would trade Ron for him. Outside of Saras, Ron, JO, Or David though, I'd offer the whole freaking farm for him. And Maybe Ron. He is really good.


    But he isn't going anywhere.

    You wouldn't offer David Harrison for Tracy Freaking McGrady?

    Would you offer Harrison for an in his prime Michael Jordan?

    When you say "outside of Saras, Ron, or JO"...you pretty much take out any player on our roster the Rockets would want for TMAC.

    Well I want to have a semblance of a team left. Excuse me if that offends you. I figured Jeff had more trade value than David.

    If the Rockets are thinkign about TMac, you have to wonder why. It's obviously not the talent, and he's obviously not a bad apple.

    In the end, you have to wonder if they think that TMac is simply too injury prone. That's scary for GMs looking to aquire a max-salary player.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Well, $$$ could be the simple answer. T-Mac makes at least three times as anyone else on their roster, Yao included. Factor in his injury-proneness and it's not that big of a shock that they may be looking to move him.

    Thats only because Yao is still in the last year of his rookie contract. Yao's already signed to a max deal for next year and Houston traded for McGrady (and his contract) knowing that Yao would get the max. Its pretty clear that Houston is fine with carrying two max contracts into their future. So yes, I would say it would be a huge surprise if Houston were to do a 180 and suddenly be worried about two contracts they just created for themselves not even a quarter of a season in.

    Yeah, I am on va's side.

    I just wouldn't want to take the chance on him.

    Doesn't it seem like every big rumor is someone going to NY, now?

    Was KG a week or so ago, and now it's Tmac.

    Its cuz the Knicks are like the Yankees of the NBA.....money is no object to them....and yet it has brought them how many championships?

    If the Knicks trade their expiring contracts and the Knicks 1st round draft pick for 2038 ( cuz that is all they have left ) for KG ....and McHale accepts it....then someone ought to fire him. If it happens...there is no justice in this world.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Why is Yao untouchable???

    Except for one decent game vs Shaq and a ton of Chinese fans - he doesn't bring much. Sometimes he's actually a real liability.

    So he's 7'6'' with a nice touch. But no passion, no banging, no toughness, no quickness. He's a whole level beneath the top level of big guys in the league like Shaq, TD, KG, Camby, Brand, and yes - JO.
