Knicks and Rockets Trade: Jordan Hill For T-Mac? Why....

Yahoo! Sports has reported that the Knicks and Rockets are closing in on a deal that includes Larry Hughes or Al Harrington, Jared Jeffries, Jordan Hill, a swap of 2011 first round picks, and 2012 first round pick for Tracy McGrady, Brian Cook, and Joey Dorsey. Now as Knicks fan this trade seems like an awful lot for a guy who can potentially just be a 31 game rental. Tracy McGrady, once a very prominent player in the NBA has played just 107 games in his last 3 seasons with Houston. He has struggled with recurring back issues, and now is coming off a tough micro fracture surgery at the age of 31. The problem I have with this trade is we have seen to little of both players to pull the trigger on this deal. Jordan Hill the 8th pick in the 2009 NBA Draft, was on most mock drafts as a top 5 player. He has barely gotten time on the court but now with the Knicks playoff hopes all but over, the younger players on the Knicks roster would be given time to develop. The bright side of this trade is we unload Jared Jeffries 6.9 million contract. Although this frees up a lot of cap space, I don't think it is enough to give up a lottery pick especially when the Knicks get no young talent in return. The thing that troubles me the most is that the Knicks are trading their draft picks in 2011 and 2012. The Knicks 2010 first rounder is owned by the Jazz (by a trade done more than four years ago). So why Donnie Walsh would want to trade a lottery pick and draft picks that are so far in the future for a player that has a lot of question marks around him is beyond me, especially since with a new CBA right around the corner and a lot of uncertainty in the summer of 2010, draft picks can prove very important in the future. Nothing is set in stone at this point just like a lot of early rumors during the trade deadline period but if this trade were to go down I would be very disappointed in Donnie Walsh. For a GM to put so much emphasis on the future of the Knicks this deal does not make sense. Read more NBA news on BleacherReport.com
