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...


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?

Time for you to play GM and drop your predictions below. I have a feeling tonight is going to be busy.
