Carter Stays With Nets

Vince Carter and the New Jersey Nets agreed Sunday to a four-year contract that guarantees the All-Star about $61.8 million


"New Jersey Nets guard/forward Vince Carter reportedly agreed to a four-year contract on Sunday.

According to The (Newark) Star-Ledger, the deal is worth a guaranteed $61.8 million, and the Nets will hold an option for a fifth year.

Carter exercised his option to forgo the final year of his contract on Saturday that would have called for $16.3 million next year.

Carter led the Nets in scoring last season, averaging 25.2 points per game. He also averaged six rebounds and 4.8 assists per contest. In 12 playoff games, Carter netted 22.3 points per game.

The team cannot confirm any agreement with Carter because free-agent deals can't be signed until July 11."

Good move by the Nets. Carter not only can fill the seats and sell tickets, but he also puts up the numbers and helps the team get wins. Now if they could just get some veteran front court help...

- Ray Allen was seen throwing out the first pitch at the Red Sox game a few nights ago. His ankles didn't look all that bad, and the pitch was pretty good too.
