Smith: Carter is 'Fool's Gold'

Otis Smith, GM of the Magic, laughed off suggestions that his reeling team would be willing to trade two of his youngest players--Darko Milicic and J. J. Redick--for Vince Carter, calling the Net guard "fool's gold". The comment was made in the context of trade deadline talks, but also carried with it an indication of how Smith generally feels about Carter. Carter has been rumored to have interest in returning to Florida if he decides to opt out of his contract. His agent met with Rod Thorn Wednesday.
