When it comes to the Suns' draft situation for Thursday night, it is easier to address what won't happen:

- They won't end the night without a draft choice.

- They won't trade Vince Carter's contract, opting instead to buy him out for $4 million in the coming days.


- They probably won't use one of their trade exceptions to take on extra payroll, which could compromise flexibility expected in 2012

He could be nice off the bench for the heat, but his defense is pretty bad.

It probably is the bulls. But with such a promising team, are they willing ot take such a risk with carter?

I'll be shocked if he goes to Chicago. He doesn't possess any of the intangibles our coaching staff or FO desires.

He is probably very far down the list of prospective 2's that the Bulls are looking at.

I agree Chi or NY...either way he is pretty much done at this point in his career

njnets
06-19-2011, 11:15 PM
how much will carter demand? idk how much money hes worth at this point in his career.

with that said though, celtics, knicks, and bulls are all in contention to get him.

even though hes old, he would be a better creator at the 2 position than the bulls current options.

the knicks have been looking for some 2 guard help. if the price was right i could see him going there.

the celtics need some depth. he would be able to provide that. not the greatest option but he may come cheap at this point in his career.

D Roses Bulls
06-19-2011, 11:15 PM
I don't see him going to the bulls. I doubt he fits the style they are looking for. I don't know whos out there this summer, but i wouldn't mind him on the bulls for a year if we can't get anything better.

It's more about Chicago's options.
My guess is Affalo and Mayo are their number 1 targets this offseason but since they'd have to make a trade likely involving Taj or picks it would make more sense to take an essentially free VC.

Yeah I was reading earlier that the Bulls were still refusing to give up Asik or Gibson in a trade.Mainly because of how Boozer played down the stretch.Without atleast one of those you wont get Mayo. I know some guys want JR Smith but I never thought that was a realistic possibility.

Afflalo isn't really realistic. Per reports, Mayo, Courtney Lee, or a 2 in this draft are much higher on the list.
Possibly JR Smith or Crawford. Then there is the possibility that our FO cashes in for Iggy or Martin. But I can almost guarantee you that we don't sign Carter. We'll give him a workout at most out of decency.

Bulls' philosophy has always been about winners, defense, toughness. Carter possesses none of that. And now that he is also on a major decline, I really doubt we consider it. We need a 2 who will come up big in the playoffs not play small like Carter consistently has in the past.

Seriously guys, do you really think Thibs will want to deal with Carter's lazy *** on defense? Very doubtful.

Certainly had the talent... Just never had the head in place.

Miami is my number 1 choice because of the fact hes from Florida, and Orlando traded him away. Plus he is looking for a ring probably and would add to Miami bench.

Why does everyone think Chicago? He doesnt play defense..

I dunno about Chicago, although he gives them offense, what about the Bulls strength on D? Carter is pretty old now too, if I were the Bulls I'd target JR Smith first.

Thibbs will not like that signing, when Wade, Kobe, Ray Allen you name it come into town and Vince is getting burned he wont get any playing time. Look at Boozer and Boozer is actually paid a lot of money.

I dont even want him on the Bulls. I saw him play a lot for phx and he looked done. And if you cant score in a phx system something is wrong. But of course he killed the Bulls last time out. He always kills the Bulls. I attended countless Bulls losses in Jersey with that annoying Veeee Ceeeee threeee!

NJ isn't out of the realm of possibility it seems. He did love it there.

The Hornets should definitely look at him.

The Bulls' lack of a second ball handler pretty much axes the no defense thing. You're not likely to get a perfect team.

The Knicks I don't know about. Another run n' gun team for Vince? That's not his game and it showed the past two seasons.

Exactly, it could only improve RJ & VC, atleast I think so. It's not like he'll have a big contract wherever he goes, but I also think the Spurs are the underdogs in getting him. IMO he'll either go to MIA, BOS, NY, CHI, LAL, SA, thats the six teams in the mix with SA being the last

He is probably very far down the list of prospective 2's that the Bulls are looking at.

I disagree on the opinion of his intangible worth but at some point his tangibles become worth considering. I mean your talking about a team that was willing to work out tmac when he was in far worse shape than vince. I don't know how much of that had to do with his relationship with thibs, but this is the same team that signed rasual butler and started bogans. They will at least consider him, but yes there are far better prospects, beggers can't be choosers, VC is still a decent get.

Yes, he was a valuable piece but the Spurs can make due at PG, if the talent of VC and RJ is still there. They wouldnt have a HOF'er at point but even half the production they had in NJ would be all the Spurs would need from the bench.

Spurs dont need to get any older, He wouldn't work in New York if he couldn't work with Nash and Howard and the Bulls would be out of their minds to give Vince a starting job..if they could deal Boozer for a good SG and bring Vince off the bench? Then maybe...look Vince just needs to go to Detroit and end it with McGrady..the Pistons can afford to take him, nobody else in the east can..and I dont see him going anywhere out west..

Vince to NY or Chi? Just a thought.

I think Lakers, Boston or Miami
Miami is my number 1 choice because of the fact hes from Florida, and Orlando traded him away. Plus he is looking for a ring probably and would add to Miami bench.

Why does everyone think Chicago? He doesnt play defense..


Im not a Bulls Fan but,...


Maybe because a 34 yr old Vince Carter (past his prime) >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Keith Bogans?


Just a thought.

Wouldn't mind seeing him come off the bench for the Lakers...but he'll most likely end up in Ny or Chi before that happens

Especially NY...he fit right in with that team..Chucking up shots to go with No D

I LOVED THAT Laker D against the Mavs:facepalm::facepalm:

Since when was Carter good?

He hasn't made any team he has ever went to any better. That guy is the defines players who don't give a ****, no one his team ever knows WTF he's going to do. Carter is the laziest player in NBA history.

All that talent and no matter who he played with he underachieved.

Hmm.... I wonder if a contender would want him. They've seen him give up before. He doesnt put out the kind of effort a contender needs on the defensive end. I gotta think T-Mac might be more appealling to some teams than Carter.

Maybe Orlando will take him back! For some reason, I do NOT want to see this guy get a ring.

his per 36 min numbers are still pretty solid. 18ppg 5 rpg and 3 apg. if he gets in good shape and buys into the system(what he didnt do in PHX) he can still be pretty good. hes definitely got some left in the tank.

Ignorant posts like this flood this terrible message board. 75% of the people in this place brown nose the hell out of who they have man crushes on and they lack the ability to put together a rational thought.

Guess you missed out on VC's first season with the Nets? Averaged almost 28 points a game and managed to get them into the playoffs. Also, note the Raptors have never had the same level of success since he was traded from there.

I don't think Vince Carter is the difference between a championship and the second round. I know the Bulls need an improvement at SG but I think they'd be better off waiting for another option. Vince is just too weak defensively and overall too soft in my opinion.

They modified the deal with Vince so they can wait until Free Agency starts instead of it being July 1st.
So he'll be a Sun as long as the lockout is in effect.

Would you not prefer younger guys for the Celtics? And guys with strong work ethics (which Vince doesn't seem to have)?

True. I would possibly only take him for the min. because of depth. Also a good point on the work ethic.

I think both parties (Suns & VC) would be against VC staying with the Suns. The only reason why Carter would want to stay is if he wasnt being bought out. He may not enjoy playing for a non-contender but Im sure hed like his $18 Million next season.

It seems like 90% of posters here think BOTH VC and J-Rich are signing with the Bulls. Best of all the Bulls have no cap space and there may not be a MLE in the new CBA. Bulls probably won't get a SG. They got all of them last offseason.

The owners also moved their position on cap exceptions, saying the Larry Bird Exception and the mid-level exception would remain in a new system, although teams could not exceed an as-yet-determined maximum team salary.

Mle is by definition the average NBA salary, if it wasn't it wouldn't be a mid level exemption it would be an arbitrary number exemption

What title? Certainly not the NBA title. And Vince Carter added to any team is not going to be much of a change. He has been less and less productive the past few seasons. He may drop down to around 11 points a game next season.

As I Bulls fan I certainly don't want him for the Bulls. I'd rather have Rip before him. Heck, I'd rather have Brewer.
