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.
