K.C. Johnson reports that the Bulls have talked about Tracy McGrady:
T-Mac time? The Rockets granted Tracy McGrady an
indefinite leave as they work to trade the disgruntled guard and his
expiring $23.2 million contract. McGrady is scheduled to make Chicago
his home base as he trains with Tim Grover.
Mike McGraw seems to back up that rumour:
McGrady recently left the Houston Rockets and both sides reportedly will seek a trade. Sources suggested the Bulls are open to acquiring McGrady, who is just 30 years old.
McGraw also mentions that John Salmons could be moved in order to cement the financial flexibility for the Bulls this summer. Should Salmons be a part of the McGrady deal, it'd be natural to assume Brad Miller and Jerome James are included.
A Salmons/Miller/James package matches salary wise for McGrady, and the Rockets could even include Joey Dorsey or Brian Cook if needed.
The Houston Rockets turned down an offer from Washington that would have sent guard Gilbert Arenas to Texas. Chicago can offer Houston a center in Miller who would bring more size to the table. The Rockets are starting the 6'6 Chuck Hayes at center, and could use a larger player alongside him and Luis Scola.
