NBA Trade Rumors Update: Knicks Ready To Reel in Tracy McGrady

February 16th, 2010 by Keith Schlosser Leave a reply »

When the Wizards traded Caron Butler and Brendan Haywood to the Mavericks this past week, the Knicks’ hope for a three team deal to bring Tracy McGrady to New York came crashing down.

However, the Knicks and Rockets have renewed talks, and Yahoo! Sports is reporting that “an agreement is within reach.”

The new proposed deal would bring McGrady to New York, along with Brian Cook and Joey Dorsey, in exchange for Jared Jeffries, Jordan Hill, and either Larry Hughes or Al Harrington. According to Yahoo!, all signs point to Hughes being included in any potential deal over Harrington.

This should come as a relief to Knicks fans, as it would allow the team to pair Harrington’s offensive spark off the bench with any production McGrady provides.

The other rumor, however, is that Donnie Walsh wants to save Harrington to trade him to the Bulls in a deal involving Tyrus Thomas.

Either alternative stands to benefit the Knicks, whether it be McGrady/Harrington or McGrady/Thomas.
