The Bergen Record (Dave D’Alessandro) reports: The Nets may seem to be in the process of blowing up their roster, but if they truly wanted to experience a true demolition job, they had their chance Wednesday night. As they were putting some of the finishing touches on the Richard Jefferson-Yi Jianlian deal, the Nets received a call from the Cleveland Cavaliers, who offered them Wally Szczerbiak and his expiring, $13.2 million salary for Vince Carter. According to two Eastern Conference executives, who asked for anonymity so as not to spill Rod Thorn’s secrets, the Nets considered it — but not for very long.
I don't think the Nets are going to go that far...If they gave Carter to Cleveland, Lebron would have reason to stay. Plus they already will have cap space for Lebron with a lot of expiring contracts that summer.
