But say you don't? As a FA signing, I think he can help the team win more games than, say, John Salmons has this year. If you don't think so, I'm not sure how objective you're being. There are really few good bench options available this year. As I said somewhere up higher in this thread...there are some starters (especially if certain guys opt out), and then a lot of limited players who can do maybe half the things Carter does.
