So far the Vince Carter experiment hasn't worked out so well.

Orlando Magic 2010/11 Season Preview - Orlando Pinstriped Post

Perhaps the biggest issue, on either side, is shot-creation. The Magic traded for Carter in the hopes that he could generate offense for himself against the league's stiffest defenses. He didn't prove to be quite up to the task. Though he's still physically gifted enough to get shots off against almost any sort of pressure, and intelligent enough to not commit too many turnovers, the shots are rather low-percentage. Perhaps not coincidentally, the Magic have worked throughout training camp and in the preseason to add new facets to their offense, which means more post-ups for perimeter players like Carter, Richardson, and Lewis; as well as running some cut-driven, read-and-react offense through the elbows.
