ESPN's Marc Stein writes the Nets are pushing Vince Carter in trade talks not Jason Kidd. Still, he notes, if a good deal for Kidd comes along, that could push things there as well. Ira Winderman, HoopsWorld columnist, says the Nets should take the best offer they can--not Jermaine O'Neal--for both by the deadline and rebuild around Richard Jefferson. Newsday's Ken Berger says the Nets are stuck and blames Bruce Ratner while Al Iannazzone writes there's still plenty of trade talk.
