We can't have a new FanPost for every random trade idea that has no real basis in reality. So there will be one active (on the front page) FanPost for random trade ideas. Right now, this is it.
If you have new trade ideas, either add them as a comment here or post them as a new FanShot (not FanPost), with a link to the trade machine url for the trade.
FanPosts are for longer, more thought-out commentary, not for every trade idea that comes to your mind and has never been mentioned or reported in the media. New FanPosts with random trade ideas will be removed if there is already a "Random Trade Ideas" FanPost on the home page.
A lot of people have been bashing Tracy McGrady recently, saying he's nowhere near the player he used to be. This is obviously a true statement, however, from what I saw last night, Tracy McGrady has a lot of game left in him. Let's look at his statline from last night's win over the Nets.
4 offensive rebounds
4 defensive rebounds
Now let's look at Travis Outlaw's statline from last night.
0-3 on 3-pointers
That's pretty pathetic, but now let's look at the annual salary for each player.
McGrady- $854, 389
That means Outlaw is making OVER 8 TIMES as much money as McGrady. That is insane. And I know you all know that what we paid Outlaw is ridiculous, but that's not the point of this Fanpost.
I think we should make a trade for Tracy McGrady. I know he's a SG and that isn't exactly a position of need right now but I think we could use him at SF. He's 6-8 and Outlaw was only an inch taller. When McGrady is hitting that mid-range jumper, he is pretty unstoppable. And last night he was grabbing offensive boards like it was nobody's business.
We could use that, especially with that salary he has. I don't know what the trade would be exactly, but I think it would be something like this:
McGrady and Hamilton FOR
Murphy, Petro, James, pick (or maybe you could use Vujacic instead of the pick)
I didn't check this on Trade Machine yet but I'm pretty sure it would work. Let me know what you think.
