4-Team Deal that Makes Rockets Contenders in One Year, Gives Knicks T-Mac, Wiz and 76ers get lots of expiring deals

[[EDITED TO REFLECT REALIZATION OF CURRY'S STATUS AS SHIT]]

http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=yh72zuq

HOU gets: Iguodala, Jamison

WAS gets: Harrington, Scola, Hughes

PHI gets: Budinger, Cook, Taylor, Miller (Mike)

NYK gets: McGrady

The first major objection will probably be: Why would Washington want 2 PFs and a center back? Well, all 3 are expiring (which enables their rebuilding project) ,and gets at least 1 quality player in Scola, who is also expiring (I believe they hold his Bird rights in the summer). The acquisition of Scola would at least semi-appease Wiz fans after pissing them all off by doing such a lopsided deal with Dallas. They would have 3 new starters at the beginning of next week / this weekend, and would have some decent guys.

Philly gets value in Budinger (and for those who don't want to see Budinger go, he is definitely replaceable and, with the oncoming CBA meltdown, will be replaceable at a cheap rate) and Taylor, a decent player now in Miller, and an expiring in Cook. It's important to note Washington, Philly and NY all get expirings with the exception of Budinger.

New York has genuine interest in T-mac both as a player and as a contract; they also get rid of Harrington (giving them the ability to develop Jordan HIll this season) and Curry. 

We obviously bank on this trade; Iguodala allows Brooks to be a pure shooter since Iggy can distribute so well, and Jamison is still good for 20ppg right now. Their contracts are both big, but I genuinely think a Yao / Jamison / Battier or Ariza / Iguodala / Brooks starting lineup is a legitimate contending team - 3 offensive weapons in the starting lineup, 2 great wing defenders, and 2 shot changers in the paint.
