Trading for Tracy


There have been reports for quite some time that Houston might trade T-Mac's expiring contract before the deadline.  Can the Wolves benefit from a deal that brings T-Mac to the Twin Cities?

He has an expiring contract of $22.84 Million.  Unless they are getting back a superstar in return, Houston will want plenty of that cap space in return.  The Wolves could send Blount's contract, Cardinal and Wilkins, which add up to $18.34 Million.  Now, in order to make this deal worth it (rather than a needless "wash" of expirings) we would throw in a less-desirable contract to match salaries.  Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing Ryan Gomes off the books. 

Would Houston take on Gomes 3 additional years, if we threw in Utah's draft pick?  Morey has had success with mid-to-late picks, and might covet that asset more than most GM's. 

This trade would offer us a chance to test drive T-Mac, and potentially establish a repoire that makes him want to re-sign at a reasonable deal.  It also gives us a little bit more cap room and relief down the road.  Finally, it would put a couple extra butts in the seats, since T-Mac, even this older version, can be fun to watch. 

Just a thought.
