Vince Carter Expected to Make Suns Debut Tonight

by December 29, 2010

Phoenix will at last get to see what they traded for when Half-Man Half-(fill in the blank) takes the court for his new squad. The AZ Republic reports: “Phoenix Suns coach Alvin Gentry said Tuesday he expects Vince Carter to make his Suns debut Wednesday night when the Philadelphia 76ers visit US Airways Center, providing that the 33-year-old swingman doesn’t experience some sort of a setback after scrimmaging full-court for the first time. ‘Obviously the talent level there is pretty special,’ Gentry said. ‘We’re excited about him. We’ll get him out there and see how long he can go, put him in some situations. I think he’s eventually going to be everything we thought he could be.’ The Suns could use the boost. They have lost three in a row to fall three games below the .500 mark and deep into the second tier of the Western Conference standings.”
