A new management team of coach Sam Mitchell and general manager Rob Babcock was hired before the 2004-05 season by the Raptors.[2] Mid-season, All-Star Vince Carter was traded to the New Jersey Nets for Eric Williams, Aaron Williams, and Alonzo Mourning.[3] But Zo would never play for Toronto as he was waived not long after the trade. The Raptors finished the season with a disappointing 33-49 record.
