Houston is reportedly positioning their salary situation to become major players in the 2010 Free Agent class.
Imagine, if you will, a Team that is around $60 Million UNDER the Salary Cap. Houston could be that team in 2010...
Antonio Daniels, Pecherov, Brendan Haywood & Etan Thomas to Houston
Yao Ming, Shane Battier, & Aaron Brooks to Washington
Why Houston does this trade: With NO committed salaries past 2010, they would have the ENTIRE SALARY CAP to sign Free Agents. Imagine a team with Chris Bosh, Dwayne Wade AND LeBron James. The Rockets would be competing for the Championship for the next 5-7 years.
Why Washington does this trade: YAO MING !!
- Arenas / Brooks / FA Signing
- Stevenson / Young
- Butler / Battier / McGuire
- Jamison / Blatche / Songaila
- Yao Ming / JaVale McGee
