Carter Unlikely to Opt Out of Nets' Contract

Will Vince Carter try to use his 2007 player option as leverage to get a contract extension? Maybe, but Dave D'Alessandro says it would difficult for VC to match the $16.3 million he is already slated to receive that year from the Nets. Moreover, says the Star-Ledger beat writer, the Nets are looking for a "serviceable" big man to complement the "Big Three" rather than trade Carter for star like Kevin Garnett. As for Vince's final shot against Atlanta, Dave was not impressed.
