New York is taking a gamble, but a good one. ; What they got isn't working. ; They have a lot of contracts that are going to expire and unloaded more salary. ; So, they will have enough money to sign 2 free agents the maximum. ; LeBron James is the first choice. ; The other could be McGrady as he gets to audition for the big money for the next 30 games. ; That is smart for all parties involved. ; New York gets to see if McGrady is a fit. ; McGrady gets to prove how good he is. And, Houston is rid of his contract and got something out of it.
