ESPN: Suns to waive Vince Carter
 
http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/73...r-lockout-ends

Quote:

Vince Carter isn't a free agent yet, but sources close to the situation say the eight-time All-Star will be thrust onto the open market shortly after the end of the lockout.

Based on an amendment in his contract obtained by ESPN.com, Carter must be waived by the Phoenix Suns within 72 hours of the official start of free agency or his $18 million salary for the 2011-12 season becomes fully guaranteed.

The Suns, sources said, have already decided to waive Carter within that window.


...

Chicago, Miami and San Antonio are expected to be among the teams interested in signing Carter, 34, once he clears waivers and becomes an unrestricted free agent.

He'd be a great addition to the Bulls.

He's slower now but can still shoot and is athletic enough in spurts to make big plays or play some defense.

Still he carry's some "loser" voodoo with him so I wouldn't sign him.

Bring him to San Antonio.. he'd thrive under our system of drive in/kickouts... and Timmy would be finding him all day.

Yep. Did any of the other posters see him play last year?

Done. Nothing but a role player who won't accept that role.

Interesting that most ISH posters have a hardon against players from an older era, but seem to think old guys from the recent era can play forever.
