According to ESPN, the Nets have acquired Vince Carter for Alonzo Mourning cousin’s liver, two guys named Williams, and 2 first rounders. Yesterday in the New York Sun, John Hollinger wrote the Nets’ pitiful offense is directly related to not having any production out of the SG spot. Coincidence? KnickerBlogger is investigating.
More seriously, I’m going to have to check out Scott’s page for a purple spin on the deal. This offers them little to no immediate cap relief. Zo’s contract and one of the Williams’ are 3 years each, and the other Williams has a 2 year deal. The key has to be the draft picks, acquired from other teams and are protected. If those picks are high enough, maybe this isn’t such a bad deal for them.
Now back to your regularly scheduled program.
