New York Daily News is reporting that the Knicks could possibly be attracted by Tracy McGrady’s 22.5 million coming off the books next July just in time for the big 2010 free agency.
If McGrady is pursued this could be monumental in luring LeBron to New York. A backcourt of Curry/McGrady could be devastating for opposing defenses. McGrady is looking to get his career back on track and really would only require perhaps Larry Hughes and maybe Jared Jefferies (I can dream right?).
I am all in favor of getting rid of the overrated Hughes who never really fit in this system with his self play and horrible ball movement. McGrady is very bridle, however, and I’m not certain his knees can handle our offense on a nightly basis. His minutes will be monitored by D’Antoni and with Richardson and perhaps Nate still remaining in the backcourt that could take a lot of pressure off of McGrady and keep him healthy.
As you can see, the possibilities are endless. Donnie, you have my approval to go after one of the guards in the game.
