T-Mac is a goner. The AP is reporting Monday night that McGrady is requesting a trade. Houston is not going to play him the rest of the season. They need a Center. Brad Miller plus Salmons or Jerome James works on the trade machine.
1- Lose Salmon’s uncertainty re opting out
2- If, a big if, T-Mac regains his ability to play we could make a nice run to end the season and go into the playoff with momentum
3- T-Mac can open up the floor for Rose
1- Losing Miller makes us vulnerable if Noah goes down.
2- I think Rose is really progressing and having T-Mac want to dominate the ball can mess up his development
3- The team could collapse if T-Mac cannot play which is definitely a possibility based on his history.
Does this make sense for us?
