Sporting News has its preseason prediction...and it's all about Vince Carter. Sean Deveney thinks that the Nets will trade VC at the trade dealine and be happy about it. He suspects that Carter will want out, as he did in Toronto, in spite of what he's been saying. Meanwhile, ESPN's Chad Ford thinks a trade at the deadline, if not inevitable, makes a lot of sense for a team trying to clear space for 2010.
