    WOW!:eek:

    Trade-deadline alert just filed to ESPN.com: Rockets have agreement in principal with Sacramento to acquire Kevin Martin

    Deal could expand before Thursday's 3 p.m. deadline into a three-way trade scenario that lands Tracy McGrady in New York with Knicks

    Although full trade details not yet known, one league source told ESPN.com that T-Mac will end up with Kings or Knicks by time deadline hits


    Kings will probably end up with what the Knicks gave up...

    EXCELLENT news boys! Looks like NY may not have their desired cap space for two max contracts. Beautiful way to end an already beautiful day!

    How common is it for players to be pulled in the middle of games/while warming up?

    Pretty good trade for the Rockets, acquired a nice young star.

    Not very worried about the Rockets improving too much. Martin is a very efficient scorer, but defense and health are two things he still hasn't quite got a handle on..

    Amazing trade for the rockets....

    On a side note: how does Jared Jeffries + Jordan Hill + 2011 First for Wally S&T sound?

    We might get flamed by the media for "opening up cap room to sign LBJ" - but I'm pretty confident he's not leaving, especially with a new talent infusion for almost nothing.

    Kings get a pretty good deal. They add a 16 ppg big man and cap space...and Ty-freak Evans can be unleashed...and Kings can actually win some more.

    Probably for injury reasons.

    It's Kevin Martin after all.

    Re: Stein: Kevin Martin to Rockets

    Crazy deal for the Rockets.

    Martin is a very good offensive player, with some questions defensively, but nonetheless an excellent young stud in this league. Surprised to see him traded, but then again the Kings didn't have much room for him considering their recent success with him out.

    Would have loved the Cavs to give a run at Martin, but since we already got Jamison I guess it was already out of the question.

    Makes you wonder though.. Windy reported saying the Cavs had four trade options.. Two of them were obvious, but maybe Kevin Martin was one of them considering this deal is going down hours after the Cavs landed Jamison. Just a guess, though..
