- Almost one down with the Kidd deal likely being official by the end of today. Next to go, Vince Carter. This one will likely be alot tougher for Thorn knowing Carter and his past.

The Knicks apparently would be willing to bring on Carter, but New jersey might not be willing to make a deal with New York. The Nets have been trying to get the Pacers to take Carter for Jermaine O'Neal, but they'd have to find a third team willing to take Carter. The Pacers are trying to reduce payroll, not add to it long-term.
