Tracy McGrady?

According to the NY Times,  the Rockets have put McGrady on leave, and  are trying to trade him, and the Knicks might be interested.

McGrady has played small forward and shooting guard, but with the Knicks lineup, I think he would come in at guard.  He is an experienced and talented player, but there are some serious questions.

 

  • Is he healthy? Last year he only played in 35 games because of knee problems.  He had microfracture surgery in February, and has played sparingly since,  less than 8 minutes a game.  Would he be able to play 20 to 30 minutes a game, or would that reinjure him?
  • What would his arrival do to the development of the youngsters? Particularly Gallo and Douglas?
  • What would the Knicks have to give up? The Rockets don't want any of the long contracts like Curry or Jefries, and the article mentions that the Knicks might have to package Hill.  I think that would be a mistake.  But what about Nate?  If he isn't going to play for the Knicks anyway, why not?  I would almost say that the Knicks should only do it if they get him close to free.  A 2nd or 3rd round pick, maybe Darko..
What are your thoughts?  Take a spin on McGrady? or stay the course?
