Vince Carter for league minimum?


Does anyone know if Phoenix is planning to waive Vince Carter? Assuming they do, rather than swallow his 18.3 million dollar 2011/2012 season, should the Magic try to sign him for the league minimum?

JJ Redick may not be a star, but when healthy he's a serviceable starter. Why not start him and try to sign Vince as a backup? He is certainly declining, but he might be able to provide some cheap scoring off the bench.

If the Magic avoid trying to bring on a comparable replacement for Jason Richardson, of which there seems to be none available, and can exercise the anticipated amnesty clause to waive Gilbert Arenas, we will have plenty of cap space in the offseason to lure Chris Paul or Deron Williams.

Not to mention if Washington uses amnesty to waive Rashard Lewis, we could likely sign him back on for the league minimum.

I mean, why not continue the trend of bring back old players? Especially if it frees up the necessary funds to make a splash in offseason free agency.
