Trade-talk roundup: What we know

ESPN.com

Chris Sheridan: Marc Stein has a news story with more on the
Knicks-Rockets-Bulls trade situation, to which we’ll add this nugget:
If Chicago is willing to deal the expiring contracts of Tyrus Thomas,
Brad Miller and Jerome James for McGrady and Brian Cook, it would shave
$2.75 off the Rockets’ payroll and move them just barely below the
luxury tax line. Here is how that deal looks in the ESPN NBA Trade
Machine.

Cavs talks with Wizards intensify

Adrian Wojnarowski

The Cleveland Cavaliers have made significant progress in trade
discussions with the Washington Wizards, offering Zydrunas Ilgauskas,
Jamario Moon and a No. 1 draft pick for Antawn Jamison and Mike James,
sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Some league sources believe this is a deal that is preferable to some
members of the Cavaliers’ management and coaching staffs over Amar’e
Stoudemire(notes), but Cleveland still hasn’t made a decision on which
trade to ultimately make. Other trade proposals that intrigue the Cavs
are still emerging on the landscape, but the focus now is on Jamison or
Stoudemire.

Knicks Said to Renew McGrady Bid, but Math May Not Work

HOWARD BECK

Four days before the N.B.A.’s trading deadline, the Knicks have renewed
efforts to acquire the former All-Star Tracy McGrady from the Houston
Rockets, according to two people close to the talks.

There were substantive discussions on Sunday between the Knicks’
president, Donnie Walsh; Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey; and
McGrady’s agent, Arn Tellem, according to the people, who did not want
to be identified discussing the negotiations.

JOHN JACKSON Sun-Times Columnist

ARLINGTON, Texas — Although the biggest names of the impending
free-agent class are LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, the player involved
in the most speculation is Chris Bosh because it’s assumed he’ll leave
the Toronto Raptors at the end of the season.

Trade Buzz: Amar'e Watch

DALLAS – Steve Kerr and Danny Ferry met Friday at All-Star weekend, a
sure sign that Cavaliers’ pursuit of Amar’e Stoudemire has intensified.
But if anybody knows the downside of such a move, it’s Kerr.

One snag in a possible pairing of Stoudemire and LeBron James in
Cleveland would be another kind of pairing that’s already been tried
and didn’t work. Shaquille O’Neal and Stoudemire could not co-exist in
Phoenix, one of many reasons Kerr was forced to undo his mistake and
send Shaq to the Cavs.
