He wrote on an earlier blog, that part of the reason a series of trades haven't happened is because of Carter. Carter is asking for 3mill per year and thus if he signs on, some teams won't be able to take on more payroll, for example, Detroit.

So the Carter signing will have a big impact on what teams trade what player, and thus Carter has Montreal, Detroit has a couple of other teams playing the waiting game, meaning they are wairing for him to decide for trades to begin happening.
It's funny that this post was the second or third in the thread, yet every one that followed it merely repeated the same sense of puzzlement and confusion as to why Gainey would have made an offer to Carter.

Anyway, in case you're wrong (which I doubt), I can only join the head-scratching: why Carter if Ryder? Whither Johnson? Where the rookies and sophomores? Why also Carter for only 500k less than Samsonov?
