With the Tracy McGrady trade being finalized, who do you think the trade favors? Also, reports are that T-Mac is very close to 100% (whatever that may be at this point in time, idk) how strong of a finish to the season can we expect from T-mac, what kind of numbers do you think he will put up to finish out the year? and what can we expect him to re-sign for next year?
If he stays in Sacramento for the rest of the season, and is the staring 2 guard then I can see him putting up around 17ppg. It's Tyreke's team and I don't think T-Mac is going to have the ball as much as he is used to. He can still be a big contributor, but the days of him being a number 1 or even number 2 option are over imo. He should try and do everything that is asked of him for the rest of the year so he can play his was onto a contender for next season at a reasonable price.
t-macs never going to have more than 15 ppg in this period of his career... he lost all of his athleticsm and its not the old tmac..
The T-Mac trade and the Salmons trade have not been made official yet. There is still the possibility that they might not end up on the teams they were initially traded to.
As DanEboy mentioned, the trade is not yet official. However, per ESPN, Carl Landry will be going to Sacramento as the trade is currently constructed. In my opinion, that's bigger news than T-Mac going to Sacramento.
The other gotcha is making this a 3-way deal with the Knicks getting T-Mac. If that happens, I hope Sergio Rodriguez moves from Sacramento to Houston and then immediately to New York because he could be a very nice upgrade over Chris Duhon.
I still think the Bulls are shopping Kirk, Tyrus, and some expiring contracts. Harrington is still on the radar. T-Mac could still end up in NY by the deadline. It could get nuts...there could be no more trades done...who knows?
DanEboy, you're right, there are still lots of possibilities looming over the next few hours.
As for Sacramento, they played their best ball when Kevin Martin was out so I think they still have plenty of offense without him. Sacramento needs help in the front court and that's why my Tyler Hansbrough comparison from the last draft, Carl Landry, could be the hidden gem in this trade.
I don't think Landry is hidden anymore. That kid can play. I don't know why Houston let him go.
