Vince Carter might finally get his wish: a ticket out of Toronto.
The Raptors and Trail Blazers are discussing a blockbuster seven-player trade that would send Carter to Portland, ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith has learned.
In exchange for Carter, Jalen Rose and two other unnamed players, Toronto would receive forward Shareef Abdur-Rahim, center Vladimir Stepania and guard Derek Anderson from Portland. Toronto proposed the multiplayer deal, Smith reports.
If this happens, Minnesota and New Jersey’s options for Latrell Sprewell and Jason Kidd are that much more limited. I was hoping that Carter would end up in Chicago, but even the Bulls are smart enough to acknowledge the dramatic, if not (v)insane drop in Carter’s value.
