It is much, much more like we're trading Richards + Carle for Weber.

WRONG. At the time of the trade Voracek was the center piece of the Carter trade, not the 1st rnd pick. Thus, based upon the original proposal where we are trading the center pieces of both trades PLUS Carle we are essentially trading both Carter and Richards (or nearly so) for just Weber. THAT is how you have to look at it. You don't look at how the trade panned out many months after the trade, you look at it the moment the trade happened.
