NBA Trades 2010 | Tracy Mcgrady to New York KnicksCategory: Basketball
At the NBA trade deadline, the New York Knicks, the Houston Rockets and the Sacramento Kings pulled off the biggest trade this 2010.
It involved disgruntled guard Tracy McGrady who found a willing taker in the New York Knicks. The Knicks will also get Sergio Rodriguez from Sacramento.
The Rockets get Kevin Martin and Hilton Armstrong from Sacramento; and Jordan Hill and Jared Jeffries from New York as well as its 2012 first-round pick and a right to swap first-round picks with New York in 2011.
The Kings get Houston’s Carl Landry and Joey Dorsey and New York’s Larry Hughes.
Tracy MgGrady was acquired by the Houston Rockets in 2004 to be paired with center Yao Ming. However, his failure to lead the Rockets deep in the playoffs and a string of injuries since the 2005-06 NBA season pulled his stocks down. He only played 6 games for the Rockets this 2009-10 NBA season.
At his best, McGrady is a legitimate scorer even leading the league in scoring in 2003 and 2004. He was a seven time NBA All-Star and a member of seven All-NBA teams. In 2003, McGrady was ranked #75 on SLAM Magazine’s Top 75 Players of All-Time.
His scoring 13 points in 33 seconds against the San Antonio Spurs on December 9, 2004 was legendary.
He is also known for his leaping ability and dunking prowess best seen on his dunk over Shawn Bradley on April 25, 2005.
