BIG SPORTS NEWS:
ESPN is reporting that Vince Carter has been traded to the New Jersey Nets. TSN has the story and details here. It's all pending league approval.
From the sound of it this was a better deal for the Raptors that what they would have gotten out of Portland. And the Raptors get some more flexibility and cap room.
FROM TSN's SITE: ESPN reports that the New Jersey Nets and Toronto Raptors have completed a trade that sends Carter to the Nets, pending NBA approval.
In exchange for Carter, the Raptors receive center Alonzo Mourning, guard Eric Williams, forward Aaron Williams and two first round draft picks.
What I'm hearing from the FAN is that Mourning could be shipped off to another contending team in another deal within a short period of time. We shall see.
