NBA Trade Rumors Come True: Knicks Trade for Tracy McGrady and Cap Room

A trade months in the making finally became official as the NBA neared its trading deadline earlier today, but not without a couple of speed bumps.

The Knicks acquired Tracy McGrady today in a three team trade with the Kings and Rockets.

Late last night it was reported that the Rockets had agreed to trade McGrady to the Kings in exchange for Kevin Martin. However, the Knicks were still able to prevail in its quest to acquire the former all-star with a little help from McGrady’s agent, Arn Tellem, who declared potential “fireworks” should T-Mac have been traded to the Kings.

Tellem represents several Kings players, and one can only bet Kings brass didn’t care to find out what he meant by “fireworks.”

Also coming to New York will be Sergio Rodriguez via Sacramento. Jared Jeffries and Jordan Hill will be heading to Houston with Martin, while Larry Hughes, Carl Landry and Joey Dorsey are sent to Sacramento.

The Rockets will also receive protected draft picks from the Knicks.
