Vince Carter took a lot of time last week to tell Nets fans and media how much he liked it in New Jersey, how he could retire a Net. Never mind the extension, he said. In spite of all that, an Orlando basketball writer says the Nets star "has made it known to friends that he would love to finish his career in Florida". The friends are not identified and with Orlando having only $12 million in cap room next year--$4 million less than what Carter will make--nor is the Magic strategy for getting him.
