Updates after the Jump, but main pieces as of now are Tracy McGrady, Carl Landry, Joey Dorsey for Kevin Martin, Kenny Thomas, Hilton Armstrong and Sergio Rodriguez.  Updates will stay on this page and continue to be updated as they come in, but continued discussion will take place in this thread.

More updates to come but Stein reporting (and Amick confirms) that Kevin Martin is heading to Houston.

UPDATE (10:30 PM):

UPDATE (10:42 PM):

Amick's Twitter: "Martin has confirmed to me that he is heading to Houston barring any late snags."

UPDATE (10:54 PM):

Woj's Twitter: "Two league sources tell Y! Sports that Kings are unsure whether they will keep T-Mac, or move him onto Knicks in a deal before deadline."

UPDATE (11:01 PM):

Kevin Martin talking to Marc Spears: "I appreciate them letting me go to a playoff caliber team at this time of my career. I used to be the young guy playing with old guys. Now I'm the old guy playing with young guys. Let the young guys develop..."

Sam Amick Blog Post up: "It's a sad day for me in sense that Sac was first team that took chance for me late in first round of draft," Martin said from the team bus. "They showed so much loyalty to me through out the years. They gave me the big contract to show that you loved me...(But) I just think it was time for us to go in a different direction. I was the young guy before, and now I'm the oldest starter. I think it's good."
