The moves are likely to produce shoulder shrugs among fans, but extending Vince Carter and adding Jamaal Magloire could play a big role in the Nets' reconstruction. Steve Popper, writing for MSG, argues Carter provides more value than any sign-and-trade would have. And Magloire plus a healthy Krstic elevates the frontcourt. Charley Rosen of FOX Sports and Marty Burns of SI note Magloire's faults but agree he could help the Nets big time. Meanwhile, the Sez praises VC's professionalism.
