Vince Carter says he's bought into the Nets' rebuilding. Kiki Vandeweghe says he believes VC is cool with it, but writers keep harping on Carter's "ETD" -- estimated time of departure.

He writes "trading Carter for whatever president Rod Thorn can get would be preferable in a dreary season to watching Vince mentor."
