League sources claim new talks were initiated regarding Vince Carter, with one exec stating that there was a 50-50 chance of a trade.
It was not immediately clear what teams pursued Carter, who will make $16.36 million next year if he bypasses free agency.
Nets president Rod Thorn insisted there was “nothing, not at all” on the horizon, but added, “You never know, things can develop.”
“A lot of times when there’s the most talk nothing happens,” said Richard Jefferson who was continuing his rehab at the practice facility. “And then when there’s little talk – no one knew we were going to get Vince Carter. No one knew we were going to get J-Kidd. Sometimes when there’s a lot of talk very little happens.”
