Allen-for-Carter?

Allen-for-Carter?Now that Vince Carter has essentially come clean with his desire to play elsewhere, it's looking more and more likely that the Raptors will trade him. As I've said before, I'd rather see #15 in the line up for the Raptors season opener, but if he's got to go there's an interesting possibility emerging.

Ray Allen of the Seattle Sonics is reportedly interested in playing for the Toronto Raptors. He's making similar money to Carter, so that takes care of the salary cap issues. He also plays a similar game. As Doug Smith writes in today's Toronto Star, "He has the type of up-tempo game that would fit perfectly with the style new coach Sam Mitchell wants the Raptors to play and he could share the court with Jalen Rose and Rafer Alston in a high-powered backcourt".

My biggest fear is we'll trade Vince Carter for a bunch of B-list players. Ray Allen is at least a star. This would make the pain a little more bearable methinks.
