41-Year-Old Vince Carter Signs One-Year, $2.4M Deal with the Hawks

Vince Carter may be far from his days as “Vincanity” but the 41-year-old vet still has a desire to lace them up. According to reports, Carter has agreed to a one-year deal with the Atlanta Hawks worth $2.4 million. ESPN insider Adrian Wojnarowski said that the Hawks are bringing Vince in to be “around its young locker room,” which features the rookie out of OU, Trae Young.

Vince told Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee,”I’ve worked extra hard just to be able to last because I love this game, […] It’s not a money thing. Obviously you want to be compensated for what you bring to the table, I get that, but it’s not the end of the world. I put the extra work in, whatever the case may be to be able to do this, to play games, to compete.”

For his 2017-18 campaign, Carter averaged 5.3 points on 40.3 percent shooting from the field and 34.5 from three on 17.7 minutes per game.

Gabrielle Union Sues BET

Actress Gabrielle Union fired off a lawsuit against BET, claiming the network tried to short-change her by stuffing more episodes into a single season of her show “Being Mary Jane” than she agreed upon, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The 42-year-old star contends producers for the hit series vowed that seasons would never run more than 13 episodes, but they’re now trying to jam 20 shows into Season 4.

Union is slated for a raise from $150,000 per episode to $165,000 in Season 5 and believes the network is attempting to “fraudulently extend” the terms of her contract, according to the lawsuit.

The contract she signed, however, does permit the network to make a season a maximum of 26 episodes, but Union reportedly says that provision is standard for deals signed by the Viacom media conglomerate and that she was repeatedly promised they’d never go beyond 13 episodes for her show, according to TMZ.

She’s reportedly seeking upwards of $1 million in damages and wants her contract to guarantee they won’t go beyond the episode limit they allegedly promised her.

Execs at BET, meanwhile, insist they did nothing wrong.

“While we hold Gabrielle Union in the highest esteem, we feel strongly that we are contractually well within our rights and are committed to reaching a swift and positive resolution in this matter,” the network declared in a statement, according to Deadline.

Production has already begun for the fourth season of “Being Mary Jane,” which centers on a television news anchor (played by Union) who juggles her job with everyday family life.

Each of the first three seasons contained between nine and 11 episodes.
