I am not a huge fan of Carter's contract. The cap number is nice, but the injury risk is significant... and, yes, I wouldn't expect Carter to be popping 40 with much regularity (if at all) in the latter half of that contract.

On the upside, Carter, unlike Kovy, brings a lot more to the table than just scoring. It makes sense to lock up these top end guys through their early 30s, but after that you want to reassess what you have.
