Carter has played worse than ever in his career.
Johnson has played better than ever in his career.
Johnson has been improving every year and will continue to improve. We have not seen the best of JJ and he is signed to a great contract.
Carter is also signed to a great contract but we have probably already seen the best of him.
Trading for Carter did NOT address our need for help on the wing while simultaneously weakening our defense all around. Voynov cannot replace JJ.
I like Carter on the Kings. Im optimistic that he will regain his form and ultimately help Richards regain his. I just feel like the move was lateral and giving up a 1st stings like salt on a open wound.
At the end of the day it was a knee jerk reaction and does not address the root of the problem.
