Eagle: Nets Didn't Believe Carter and Jefferson Could "Co-Exist"

In his first Q-and-A for YES, Ian Eagle says his sense is that the Nets traded Richard Jefferson because "Nets didn't believe that Jefferson and Carter could co-exist any longer". Eagle doesn't elaborate but says the team chose to "build this team around Carter and Devin Harris" and implies RJ had more trade value. Carter, he says, "didn't want to step on anyone's toes" before but now must lead a young team.
