Orlando Adds Some Vinsanity
The Orlando Magic didn’t take Cleveland’s Shaq acquisition lying down as they made a big splash of their own by landing Vince Carter from the New Jersey Nets. ESPN is reporting that the Nets sent Carter and Ryan Anderson to the Magic for Rafer Alston, Tony Battie, and Courtney Lee.
This marks yet another salary dump, which has been commonplace this week. Milwaukee dumped Richard Jefferson and Phoenix dumped Shaq. Clearly the economic climate is playing a major role in teams’ decision making.
Vince Carter’s fantasy value takes a hit as he’ll have to share with Dwight Howard, Rashard Lewis, Jameer Nelson, and possibly Hedo Turkoglu. Courtney Lee appears to be the biggest gainer in fantasy value.
