“Tracy McGrady and Sergio Rodriguez to NYK; Kevin Martin/Jared Jeffries/swap of 2011 first with Knicks and 2012 first from Knicks to Houston AND Kings get Carl Landry, Joey Dorsey and Larry Hughes‘ expiring contract . . . all just filed to ESPN.com.”
Sources say Houston gets Kevin Martin, Jared Jeffries and Jordan Hill. Also the right to swap first-round picks with NYK in 2011 and New York’s first-rounder in 2012.”
It was reported that Donnie Walsh did not want to trade Jordan Hill but he was desperate to move Jared Jeffries and his $6.9 million dollar contract for next season. The Knicks have saved $9.4 million in cap savings and can go after two max players in the off-season.
Tracy McGrady has been working with trainer Tim Grover to get back into shape. Grover, who trained Michael Jordan, says “put him in uniform and get him out there, T-Mac is ready.” McGrady, has an expiring contract and is only 30 years-old. He should put fans into the seats and his jersey should be a quick seller.
Sergio Rodriguez was a first round pick by the Suns in 2006 (27th overall). He has a ton of upside and will be turning 24 years old in June. In his third year in the league he has yet to find a niche due to inconsistent playing time. However, he has shown flashes this season when he received over 20 minutes of playing time.
FYI: The Knicks traded Nate Robinson and Marcus Landry for Eddie House, Bill Walker and J.R. Giddens.
Eddy Curry has a $11.2M expiring contract for next season which could be used to trade for another big contract of longer term- Idea from Newsday writer Alan Hahn
