    OT: Vince Carter To The Knicks??

    Feb 22 - League sources said the Knicks and Nets discussed a Vince Carter deal that would bring Channing Frye, Jamal Crawford and Malik Rose to this side of the Hudson River. -- Bergen Record


    Multiple sources said the teams engaged in discussions on Tuesday and again on Wednesday.
    The Knicks' package for Carter, who can opt out of his deal at season's end, also centered around Frye, the young forward that the Nets coveted in the 2005 draft. The Knicks' offer was also believed to have included Jerome James ($5.4 million this season) and Malik Rose ($7.5 million this season) and one other player, perhaps Kelvin Cato or rookie Renaldo Balkman.

    "There was interest on both sides and there were conversations, but what was offered simply didn't appeal to the Nets," a league executive said. -- New York Post


    At least two general managers revealed that the Nets discussed a deal for Carter that would have included Jamal Crawford and Channing Frye. Another player, believed to be Malik Rose, would have to be included for salary-cap purposes. A league source said that the Knicks are refusing to part with David Lee, and that could potentially kill the deal.
    A Knicks source said the team is not close to acquiring Carter, although the same official acknowledged that Thomas is still fond of the Nets' All-Star shooting guard. Also, Knicks GM Glen Grunwald was running the Raptors when Toronto drafted Carter. -- New York Daily News


    Vince Carter's agent/attorney visited the Nets' practice facility Tuesday and had a conversation with team president Rod Thorn, multiple sources said.
    It's likely Carter's contract situation came up when Thorn spoke with Kurt Schoeppler, but sources said there wasn't any talk of hammering out an extension. -- Bergen Record

    Wrong. The Nets are trying to deal him because he's likely to sign with Orlando as a free agent in the offseason.
