I really feel this had a big impact on Richards being dealt. The Carter deal made sense...it cleared the short-term/long-term salary for them to sign Bryz and they got a killer return. When you trade one franchise center however, that should make the other one even more untouchable...especially with the package they got. I think they tossed the idea of trading Carter to Richards in the past and his displeasure for it, as well as other things, made them to decide to move both.
