    Actually looking at what teams who are actually selling to dump salaries and the contracts match at least 75%, (which is the NBA trade rule when over the cap) I actually found some realistic trades for TMac. My rules were who has players with at minimum 2 years on contract which teams are trying to dump for next season and needs which the Rockets would like to add to the team. All my trades are straight up for Tracy.

    Milwaukee
    Michael Redd 17 mil 2 years left on deal
    Dan Gadzuric 6.7 mil 2years left on deal

    New Orleans
    Tyson Chandler 14.2 mil 2 years left on deal
    Mo Peterson 6.2 mil 2 years left on deal

    Detroit
    Tayshaun Prince 10.3 mil 2 years left on deal
    Richard Hamilton 11.3 mil 1 year left on deal

    I would do the Detroit deal all day long. We would still need to add size and a backup center of course

    IMO all the possible players to trade T-Mac for(Amare and Vince) are gone. So we'll likely just keep him until at least the trade deadline.

    I really didn't believe in those trades for Tracy because all three players have expiring contracts. It really didn't make since for those teams to trade a active scorer for a guy who will likely be out until Janurary.

    The Amare deal to golden state is dead

    The New Orleans trade doesn't look good for Rockets because it doesn't make us any better. Sure, we'd have a backup center but really no good player at the sg spot.

    And Paul+McGrady could be very effective.

    Nash and Amare for Brooks, Landry, TMac... anyone?

    But, I'd rather take that Detroit deal for Tracy, straight up. That would be sick.

    I would do the Amare trade (If the Golden State rumor isn't true)

    Bruce Bowen for Brian Cook
    Defensive mentor for young players like White. The Bucks would save some $$$ also. Depth

    Sign Mike Bibby to full MLE for couple of years. (hope that's enough)

    Resign Artest, Don't resign Wafer

    Starters:
    Yao
    Amare
    Battier
    Artest
    Bibby

    Rotation:
    Scola
    Barbosa
    Lowry

    Bench:
    Hayes
    Budinger
    Bowen
    Barry

    Inactive:
    Dorsey
    White
    Taylor

    With Battier, Artest, and Hayes I dont think we need another defensive player that can't score.

    I'm not saying those are realistic. I just said that those are the MOST realistic of any T-Mac trade scenario in a relative sense. In the end Morey just isn't going to dump him. Which is why we're not going after the likes of Redd or Chandler.

    Rockets: Nash + E.Thomas
    Suns: Rubio + Madsen
    Minny: Brooks + McGrady


    Flynn, Telfair
    Ellington, Brewer
    Gomes, Cardinal
    Love, Songaila, E.Thomas, Madsen

    While Morey and his crew were crunching numbers,the spurs and magic were getting their trash ready and watching game tape. The results were a in division that has kicked ur ass 4 ever, got a all star caliber scoring/defending wing for less than what u got a declining guy in miracle intangibles that put up a whopping 5ppg on the road in the playoffs. Go formulate that.
