Washington Post’s Michael Lee has weighed in on the rumored Gilbert Arenas for Vince Carter trade and if you wanted to see Arenas out of D.C., you probably won’t be happy. According to Lee’s twitter feed:
Was told Wiz & ORL talked about Arenas-Carter swap, but conversation didn’t get far. One prominent player agent said, “Not going to happen.”
So, if you believe an anonymous NBA player agent, this discussion was not anything more than just a discussion. It certainly never got to the point of becoming negotiations if deal discussions are already finished.
I would say never say never, but this one doesn’t seem likely.
