The Nets want Vince Carter back. Carter wants to come back. Bruce Ratner, Rod Thorn, Ed Stefanski and Carter himself are all on the record saying so. So why not deal now? Dave D'Alessandro reports there is the small matter of about $15 million to discuss...the difference between what Carter would want and what the Nets would like to give him. Thorn also wants to wait til season's end to avoid a distraction...and perhaps take a look at the sign-and-trade market.
