Vince Carter’s Not Hanging ‘Em Up Yet

Vince Carter will return for his 19th NBA season. (Joe Camporeale/USA TODAY Sports)

Following yesterday’s four-game sweep to the San Antonio Spurs, Vince Carter was asked about his immediate future in the NBA.

Return for his 19th season (and final year of a three-year deal with Memphis) or ride off into the sunset with 23,969 points, 5,913 rebounds and a lifetime’s supply of spectacular highlights?

Clearly VC still has the desire to play and that’s all that really matters here. Averaging just under 7 points in about 17 minutes/night, Carter is a bit role player who still possesses the ability to stretch the floor at a decent rate (35%).

Whether he’s a part of a potentially restructured Grizzlies roster or not, VC can produce as a low-usage, second-unit vet with an uncanny ability to posterize guys at the age of 40!
