Arrow Dallas talks Carter trade with Nets

The San Antonio Spurs are also pursuing Carter and have discussed a proposal that would include Roger Mason, Bruce Bowen and Fabricio Oberto.

For the Nets, dealing Carter would be a financial move.

Maybe the Nets will look at last year's trade with Dallas and see the success they've had with Devin Harris. Josh Howard would be a solid small forward to pair with Devin Harris, and Jerry Stackhouse would be a reliable veteran backup (or starter at the 2?). Both's contracts expire by 2010, so the Nets can still make a play at the big-name free agents. I like the deal, but Dallas should be hesitant of trading away another good young player for an aging star.

The Spurs' offer is intriguing, but there isn't anyone in that group that can make the impact that Howard and Stack could over a two-year period. Oberto would likely rot on the bench, and Bowen would only be a fixture in Jersey for a year, then he'd retire. Mason is a solid role player, but Jersey's offense would take a severe blow by not receiving a good #2 scorer in return. Good for the Spurs, bad for the Nets. Dallas's offer's the one they should go for.
