    Could Vince Carter soon be joining Jason Kidd and Richard Jefferson in a new-look Nets attack? The Raptors and Nets are discussing a deal that would send Carter to New Jersey, for Alonzo Mourning, Eric Williams, Aaron Williams and two first-round draft picks, according to two league sources. One source called the deal "imminent", but the other said it was possible the Raptors were waiting to see if better offers come in.

    Neither Raptors nor Nets officials would comment Friday.

    Carter, a five-time All-Star, has been on the trade market since the season began. A few weeks ago he appeared headed to the Blazers in a deal involving Shareef Abdur-Rahim, but those talks broke down at the last minute. Lately the Knicks were said to be a hot pursuer but apparently didn't have the assets Toronto needed to make a deal. Putting the high-flying Carter with Kidd and Jefferson would be a boon to the struggling Nets, who lost Kenyon Martin to free agency last summer. Toronto, meanwhile, would rid itself of the disgruntled Carter, as well as the remaining four years and $57.9 million due on his contract. The Raptors also would get a true center in Mourning to go with two other hard-working veteran defenders who fit the mold of coach Sam Mitchell.

    Looks like the Nets organization is trying to keep Jason Kidd happy. Good trade for Raptors in my opinion. Carter wasnt getting along with new coach and front office anyways and has bad knees to go along with it. Richardson and Carter play the same position also, that could be a problem? Raptors get two first rounders plus the Williams and Zo. Ill take the Raptors side in this trade.

    I think a lot of Carter but this deal would tell me the Nets are making a desparate attempt at winning NOW.. because the future would be for shit... they'd have to resort to free agency only... and that market is so overpriced it'll handcuff them for years... or its a way of blowing Kidd to stay...

    Kidd and Carter are aging.. which equates to more injuries... but packaged with Jefferson.. those are three damn good players... but last I heard you need to put 5 on the floor... and that means this team is still going nowhere.. with no frontcourt at all...

    Granted Zo and Eric Williams are each 100 yrs old... Aaron Williams is 99... so it appears they're being tossed in to make the salary work...

    bottom line.. it doesn't make sense to me... I agree with smitty.. Raptors win.. big
