It’s the most wonderful time of the year: the NBA Draft. Where winners become losers, and losers become winners. Where trades are graded, and grades are...traded?
Tonight is the night we ask ourselves: What does Sean Marks have up his sleeve?
Must be something, because; well...
Updated our story on Suns trade to include so far unconfirmed report that Nets could be part of proposed LA—Wizards deal. https://t.co/6D2DxBxZN5— NetsDaily (@NetsDaily) July 29, 2021
Nets currently have five picks, at 27, 29, 44, 49 and 59, second most in the Draft after OKC. Also most in Marks era and also likely to change.— NetsDaily (@NetsDaily) July 29, 2021
So, buckle up.
What do we know about Carter?
Carter, who backed up Chris Paul this year, playing in 60 games, one a start, averaging 4.1 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.2 assists. He has a career shooting line of 39/38/80. Carter was drafted by Memphis out of West Virginia with the 32nd pick in 2018, then traded to Phoenix a year later.
The trade is basically a salary cap wash. Carter will make $3.65 this season, slightly less than Shamet. In 2022-23, Carter will make more than $1.5 million less than Shamet. The Nets seemed reluctant to extend Shamet, a decision they would have had to make by October 18.
And what about Spencer Dinwiddie?
Have heard similar things -- Dinwiddie to Wizards is a possibility https://t.co/kp91CQdVMI— Mike Mazzeo (@MazzNYC) July 29, 2021
Time for you to play GM and drop your predictions below. I have a feeling tonight is going to be busy.
