Default T-Mac

I'd seriously explore trading for McGrady. He is in the last year of a very expensive contract, and that's too bad considering that at this point in time, he could probably be obtained for expiring spare parts.

If his health holds after this round of surgeries (a huge if, but something the doctors could definitely look into), he could be that missing ingredient at SG that gives us a competitive edge vs. the top four teams in the conference. If the experiment doesn't work out, he could easily be let go during the summer.

The only way this would work, though, is if BC gets another team way under the cap involved while Houston agrees to take spare parts (like Weems or Wright or Pops) back in a trade. I doubt BC would be willing to risk a rotation player at this point, unless he is ready to trade Caldy and Houston wants him (both highly doubtful).

Then again, he could be done like dinner. How can anyone form an opinion after watching him play 8 minutes per game?

FORGET the idea of trading Calderon! No one would ever want that big deal for an overrated / always injured / I can't take my team over .500 PG

The deal that could work is McGrady and key role players for Bosh. It'd be great for both teams to trade

McGrady, Scola, Brooks for Bosh + Banks or Jack + filler to match salaries

The Rockets are struggling with Brooks (he holds the ball way too much, Lowry is much better for their style). They'd get a back up PG
Bosh would be their star, assuming Yao is always injured. They'd have no problems paying Bosh max money (chinese players mean money to the team). Scola would help a lot the Raptors, with hustle on defense, inside scoring, rebounding, and his really developed 18 footer. Brooks would make Raptors backcourt more creative, bringing the eluviseness we lacked. McGrady still has something left; I wouldn't rule him out. Raptors would be a much better team with this. Maybe even acquiring Battier, in a different scenario

Screw getting T-Mac. He's a pure jump shooter now and he doesn't like to play D. He's the last guy the Raps need right now.

McBaby never considered Toronto his home.

The only reason to acquire him is to free up cap space when the season ends. Not sure that is a priority right now for BC.

Raptors would be crazy to do that deal.

why would the Raptors do that deal?? Bosh is an elite PF in the NBA, Jack is better than Brooks all around... TMac is going down hill fast!!!!!

So their is no reason the Raptors would do that deal.

You were mostly correct, except for the bold. We love Brooks, he is a fantastic player.

Not a good look. Why would we want someone that is busted up? Hopefully he goes to whomever the Raps potential 1st rd playoff meeting is against and his no win playoff series streak continues.

Well, first off, Bosh AND Jack definetly wouldn't be going Houstons way. My guess ti would be Bosh plus Wright. Secondly, Brooks is a very good young PG with huge potential. Scola is as consistent as it gets. T-Mac probably wouldn't be here for his playing ablility rather than his huge expiring contract which could give us the opportunity to sign a marquis player in the of-season.

A core of Brooks+DD+Hedo+Scola+Bargs is pretty nice, not to mention FA(s) we could sign with the cap space left by T-Macs huge expiring contract.

And we'd get Bosh and hopefully jack which is a really good deal too..

not sure about the brooks part though, dont think Houston would be willing to give up a quick young guard with tons of potential. but then again Brooks doesn't play that well with Yao so you never know.

I dont understand how any player CANT play well with Yao Ming. Hes one of the best bigman passers in the NBA, he attracts a boatload of attention, and hes a huge screen. If Aaron Brooks cant play with that hes never going to lead a team anywhere.

Do any of you realize T-Mac makes 23 million.......really hard to match just his salaryt in a trade. Houston will release him after trade deadline. Houston might take Jose in at trade 8.2 million but where do you get the rest they would likely want expiring contracts and DD. Simply doesn't work if released he will rent himself to a contender.

Well Brooks is not a traditional dishing point guard. His potential lies in his quickness and ability to score baskets. WHen Yao is playing, houston plays around him, and Aaron isn't the best passer.

I love this post and completely agree with you.
Only problem is that Houston has Aaron Brooks (PG) who is playing exceptionally well, so trading for Jose Calderon would make very little sense.
If they were interested...
I would offer Hedo, Calderon, and Bellineli/Wright/Weems
for T-Mac

imagine the hype...
