Wizards, Rockets, Knicks Working On Three-Team Deal

We might have our first big trade of the trade deadline season! Rejoice!

According to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, the Wizards, Knicks and Rockets are discussing a deal that would send Caron Butler and Brendan Haywood to Houston, Tracy McGrady to the Knicks and Al Harrington to the Wizards.

Other pieces would need to be thrown in to match the salaries. The Knicks are currently taking in $23 million while sending out only $10 million. The Rockets need to take in an additional $6 million, while the Wizards need to send out another $6 million or so. Here’s one way to get that all done. It should be noted that this is coming straight from my head and is not necessarily being discussed.

WASHINGTON TRADES: Caron Butler, Brendan Haywood, DeShawn Stevenson, Javaris Crittenton
WASHINGTON RECEIVES: Al Harrington, Cuttino Mobley, Jordan Hill, Jermaine Taylor, Houston first-round pick in 2010 draft

HOUSTON TRADES: Tracy McGrady, Jermaine Taylor, Joey Dorsey, 2010 first-round pick
HOUSTON RECEIVES: Caron Butler, Brendan Haywood, DeShawn Stevenson, Javaris Crittenton

NEW YORK TRADES: Al Harrington, Cuttino Mobley, Jordan Hill
HOUSTON NEW YORK RECEIVES: Tracy McGrady, Joey Dorsey

Houston receives two starters without dealing one of its top prospects. Washington gets financial relief and young talent, as well as a draft pick. New York gets McGrady. Looks good to me.
