A Toronto Raptors trade could be coming soon, but it may not involve Jose Calderon. That may frustrate fans of teams like the Los Angeles Lakers, especially because Calderon is a great point guard, but it is another guard that the Raptors may part ways with.
According to the Toronto Star, the Raptors are either going to trade Carter or simply release him in the next week and a half. By putting this information out there, the trade value of Carter may drop quite a bit, but if a team really wants to acquire him they will find a way to do so. He could certainly help out as a role player coming off the bench for a team that needs to add depth.
During the 2011-12 NBA season, Carter has played in just 24 games, averaging 8.7 minutes a night. The limited action has hurt his numbers, as Carter is averaging just 2 points and 1.4 assists per game. He has a lot of veteran savvy to offer though and he has always been known as a tough player on the court.
Anthony Carter has had a long career in the NBA, spending time with the Miami Heat, Denver Nuggets, New York Knicks, San Antonio Spurs and Minnesota Timberwolves before coming to Toronto this year. He still has something left in the tank though, so maybe if he gets released another team will pick him up.
Do you think that the Toronto Raptors can find a trading partner for Carter? Is it more likely that he will simply get released within the next two weeks?
