Default Carter to GSW?

Quote:
The Warriors and New jersey Nets are talking about a deal which would send Vince Carter to the Warriors. The Warriors have offered 6th man Corey Maggette as the centerpiece in the deal along with swapping first round picks this year. The hold up at this point seems to be who else the Warriors would send to the Net along with the Nets wanting the Warriors to take back Keyon Dooling as well.

I don't get this trade from a NJ prespective. Why do they need Magette? Carter has a shorter contract and is more healthy. The only birhgt spot is that they move up in the draft but that doesn't really help especially if you have to take on Magette's contract

That ain't happening. Maggette's contract is longer than Carter's. And Vince is a MUCH better player than Maggette.

I disagree. The only thing that Vince does better is shoot 3s.

If Maggette played Carter minutes he would be putting up better numbers.

Operative word here is IF. Maggette is more oft-injured than Vince. I disagree with your sentiments. Vince is more of a game changer than Maggette.

Vince is a better defender (when he wants to be), a better ball handler and a better passer, has a better mid-range game, gets to the hole just as easily, better in the clutch...not to mention his 1000x more intelligent out on the court than Maggette.

Default Breaking News: Vince Carter Dealt to Orlando

Quote:
The New jersey Nets are in serious talks with the Magic about a deal that will send Vince Carter to Orlando for Rafer Alston, Tony Battie and Courtney Lee, two league sources told ESPN.com.

The talks have reached a point that a deal could be done by the end of the day Thursday, according to sources.

The trade would give the Magic even more star power on their quest to win an NBA championship. The addition of Carter to a lineup that already consists of All-Star players Dwight Howard, Rashard Lewis and Jameer Nelson would make them the favorites to win the Eastern Conference title next year.
Sources: New jersey Nets-Orlando Magic talks include Vince Carter, Rafer Alston - ESPN

Orlando isn't really losing much of anything in that trade. Jameer is leaps and bounds ahead of Rafer when healthy and Vince will make up for the loss of Lee and then some. Scary team. If they manage to keep Turkoglu around I'd say they're as good or better than the Lakers.

You can't compare skillsets like that.

Their playstyles are very different. Vince prefers to be a spot up jump-shooter while Maggette prefers to slash and bang inside. Maggette's skillset is akin to that of a PF as Vince's is that of a SG.

Maggette's lived with questionable decision making his whole life. But Vince is similar--remember that season where he just started jacking 3s on every play? Yeah, that sure was some fine basketball IQ.

For one, it takes quite a bit of intelligence to be able to get to the free throw line day in and day out like what Maggette has done, something that Vince is unable to replicate.

You can also argue that Vince does not know the term "box out" and instead relies on his athelticism whereas Maggette using his smart positioning for maximum effectiveness.

Battie and Alston give Nets more than $11 million in expirings, plus they get a good young player in Lee

But now they lose a dependable backup PG unless they're resigning Johnson.

Considering no one really wants to touch Vince's contract, this is probably one of the better deals out there for Jersey. It probably means that either Johnson or Derozan will be selected with their pick. I like Lee playing with Harris. That's a speedy and deadly back-court. I don't see how NJ gets "raped".
