True Hoop's Henry Abbott writes that the Nets' decision to send Ryan Anderson to Orlando surprised a lot of NBA types. Abbott writes, "I can't tell you how many people at the draft told me they were surprised that the Nets had to include promising, talented and affordable Anderson in the Vince Carter deal." The implication: It takes "more than a little sweetener" to get teams to take on big contracts any more.
