The Zionist Conspiracy

Are the Nets about to give away Jason Kidd and Vince Carter in a massive salary dump for a bunch of expiring contracts? While I can understand trying to trade Carter even for much less than equal value, the only possible explanation for trading Kidd would be that owner Bruce Ratner has decided to stop losing millions on the Nets, even as he stands to make hundreds of millions on his Atlantic Yards project. The Nets' prospective move to Brooklyn was, of course, the trojan horse used by Ratner to gain support for Atlantic Yards.
What's so frustrating about all of this is that before dismantling their team, the Nets could try changing coaches. It's obvious that Lawrence Frank is not motivating his players. The Nets' best course would be to replace Frank if things don't turn around during this remainder of the 2006-07 season.
