New Light Shed on Carter Trade Talks

There's new details on how the Vince Carter trade went down last June. George Diaz of the Orlando Sentinel writes the Magic liked Courtney Lee so much the deal had to be blessed by the team's 83-year-old founder while Al Iannazzone reports the two teams at one point talked about trading VC and Eduardo Najera for Rafer Alston, Tony Battie and Mickael Pietrus. But the Nets wanted Lee and the Magic Ryan Anderson.
