Butler/Haywood to Houston for T-Mac?

Quote:
The Wizards and Rockets have continued to discuss a possible trade centered around Tracy McGrady, according to NBA front-office sources.

However, nothing is imminent and the two sides continue to talk with other teams ahead of the Feb. 18 trade deadline.

McGrady was granted an indefinite leave from the Rockets in December after his representatives and Houston management mutually agreed to pursue a trade that would find a new home for him.

Sources told ESPN.com that the Rockets have expressed interest in acquiring forward Caron Butler and center Brendan Haywood from the Wizards.

BC get something done, I know the Wiz are looking for expiring contracts and Tmac's is the biggest but HOU gets so much talent back

I wonder what we couldve done with JOs contract if he was still here lol

idk about winless. they probably play the Nets a couple of times

but I'm sure they're gonna trade Jamison too if they do this one

so their draft pick is def gonna be good that's for sure

Just imagine if they could convince Haywood to re-up in the off season...

Brooks/Lowry
Butler/Budinger
Ariza
Landry/Scola(if he resigns)
Yao/Haywood

Miller is a very smart player, pesky defender, excellent shooter.

Talented guys like that are always welcome on my team.

If they do this trade with Houston, then another player will likely be coming off of the Wizards books.

Butler + Haywood = roughly $ 16 mill
TMac = $23 mill

So I suspect that the Wiz will try to offload DeShawn Stevenson as well.

If the Wiz dump Butler, Stevenson and Haywood, then they most certainly are going to dump Jamison.

With Butler, Jamison, Stevenson, and Haywood off the books, the Wiz would have less than $30 million in committed salary for next season. And if they voided Gilbert's contract, they'd have less than $10 million in committed contracts (but they could still make Foye a qualifying offer worth approx $5 mill).

Needless to say, the Wiz could have a drastically altered lineup next season. If they cut all these players loose, I doubt they stand a good chance of attracting a big name free agent. If they do all this wheeling and dealing, the Wiz will probably go cheap for a couple of years and try to stock pile cheap, young talent.

Jose isn't old? what are you saying?

Either way we would have more luck with Kevin Martin or Josh Howard
