The Rockets and New Jersey Nets meet on the court Tuesday night in Houston. Will they be swapping more than baskets?


The two teams have exchanged Vince Carter trade proposals over the past few days, league sources told ESPN.com Tuesday.

Currently the teams are haggling over what the Nets will get in return for Carter. Sources say the Rockets have been pushing a trade that sends Tracy McGrady to the Nets for Carter and Trenton Hassell. However, the Nets are balking at taking back McGrady's contract.

McGrady is slated to make $22 million during the 2009-10 season. However, McGrady's contract comes off the books in the summer of 2010. The deal would save the Nets roughly $21 million over the life of Carter's contract. The Nets would then have around $30 million in cap room to use in a stellar free-agent market.

Sources say the Nets are also concerned about McGrady's health. McGrady has already missed 18 games this year. The Houston Chronicle reported on Tuesday that McGrady missed Monday's practice and will not play against the Nets as he prepares to seek more opinions on his problematic left knee.

The Nets have countered with a proposal that would send Carter and Josh Boone to the Nets for a combination of Ron Artest, Shane Battier, Luther Head and Carl Landry.

Trading the cousins? Ouch.

"Well, Tracy, we couldn't do jack with you, so we're shipping your arse out for your cousin who we hope can take us to the promised land."

I'd hate to be in that situation...

T-Mac just isn't healthy.

And while this makes the Rockets a lot better, they still aren't contenders.
