Nets, Drowning in the Atlantic, Want to Keep Carter



In an analysis of the misery that is the NBA's Atlantic Division, USA Today revisits all the Nets' faults, but buried in the story is a quote from Rod Thorn that should make Vince Carter fans happy. The Nets would like to hang on to him, if possible. "If you lose a player like Vince and don't get anything for him," Thorn says, "that would be a tough loss...We'd like to sign him if it's possible because he's still one of the best players." And the Grizzlies say Thorn did not offer Carter in a bid for Pau Gasol.
