Errrr................what the f*ck?

http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/stor ... AHeadlines

The New Jersey Nets have agreed to a trade with the Magic that will send Vince Carter and Ryan Anderson to Orlando for Rafer Alston, Tony Battie and Courtney Lee, two league sources told ESPN.com.

The two sides are expected to a complete the trade by the end of the day.

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 Orlando the favorite to win the Eastern Conference title next year if the franchise also finds a way to bring back Hedo Turkoglu, who will opt out of his contract this summer.

As for the Nets, the move is a cost-cutting measure. Both Alston and Battie are in the last year of their contracts, and trading for them would shave $16.5 million off New Jersey's roster in the summer of 2010 and put the Nets well below the salary cap.

Over the life of the contracts, the Nets would save $40 million by making the deal.

The deal, if completed, would also give the Nets a young, promising shooting guard in Lee.

With the 11th selection in the 2009 NBA draft, the Nets are likely to select Louisville's Terrance Williams, sources tell ESPN.com.


Are there going to be ANY trades that are actually about exchanging talent???

Seriously, I mean you just pretty much gift wrap the Magic a title if they can re-sign Turkoglu.

Whats the point? (yeah yeah, I know, save the Nets loads of money but there must be better trades out there that could do that and help them more in terms of talent)

I dont see Vince striking fear in the hearts of anybody. This is not the VC that was traded from the Raps to the Nets. Werent the Nets a title contending team and he was the piece to put them over the top?

IF the Magic resigned Turkoglu as well and that's a BIG IF,they become the favourites with getting Carter. Would be a great move and finally Orlando could get that championship, maybe

Let's not forget, had certain things went Orlando's way in the end of a couple games, they would of been up 3-1 going into game 5 in Orlando.

especially since the big contract of VC all but assures Hedo will not be coming back. maybe this trade helps somebody like Portland or Detroit more than it helps the Magic.

Well, it's big only as long as Turkoglu signs back with Orlando. If not, they'll stay pretty much the same...

As far as the reason for me posting here, I was going with.............well I dont know, how weve always talked about other NBA teams!!!!!!!! =

NBA Forum
Talk about anything general in the NBA here.


I always understood and have seen that the NBA forum is for anything to do with other teams in the league.

Trades
Discuss any moves or trades here, real, rumored, made up, you name it!


I took this to mean any proposed, rumoured, made up trades to do with our team!

But fine, if the mods want to move the goal posts and change the history of the board to suit their mistakes...........then thats fine by me. :mrgreen:

Apart from in the last week, find me a trade that didnt involve us in the Trade Forum...............then go and find all the ones that involved other NBA teams in the NBA forum. :wink:
