“The Knicks and Rockets are getting closer to a deal that would send Tracy McGrady, Joey Dorsey , and Brian Cook to New York in exchange for Jared Jeffries, Jordan Hill , and either Al Harrington or Larry Hughes .”-Yahoo Sports

Draft picks being swapped have also been rumored. The Knicks do not have a first round pick this year but could deal a future one. New York needs to move Jeffries because he is owed $6.9 million dollars next season.

T-Mac would see minutes in the rotation because he is playing for another contract. Also the  rotation would get thinner due to the trade. He is turning 31-years old in May and may have some skills left in the tank.
