Vince Carter knows that there will be persistent trade rumors involving his name this summer, but insists that he wants to remain with the Nets.
"Absolutely," Carter said of wanting to stay in New Jersey. "Like I said, I'd love to finish what we started. I think we've built some good things together."
Carter is expected to be coveted by teams, but his contract (which will pay him $16.1 million next season, and $17.5 million in 2010-11) could hamper any possible deal.
The Nets are known to be fond of Carter as well.
