A person with knowledge of the situation said the Houston Rockets are engaging in very preliminary discussions involving offers for Tracy McGrady and, the source said, the Knicks have shown some interest. However, much like the inquiry about Shaquille O'Neal, it is believed to be strictly due diligence at this point on the part of Walsh. NY Newsday Blog

The oft-injured McGrady, a seven-time all-star who over the last year endured surgeries on his shoulder (arthroscopy) and knee (microfracture procedure), played just 35 games this past season. He has one year and $23 million left on his contract, which, for the Knicks, would make acquiring him a low risk, especially if it doesn't cost them more than an expiring contract. NY Newsday Blog
