I think he was the final piece and they don't do it without him. I also think that team was amazingly lucky; they made it to the playoffs on a razors edge. One key player misses one or two games and they possibly don't even make it in; trading for Carter doesn't help them if Doughty misses two games and they lose because of it, for instance. I'm not trying to paint Carter as a savior here; I'm just pointing out it wasn't as simple as changing the coach...one more move was needed, and this team doesn't really have the luxury to make such moves.
