Atlanta Hawks re-sign veteran forward Vince Carter for his final season

Atlanta Hawks re-sign veteran forward Vince Carter for his final season”

After agreeing to return to the Atlanta Hawks next season, Vince Carter is now set to play a record-breaking 22 years in the National Basketball Association.

The 42-year-old Carter, a free agent this summer, has said this season will be his last, ending a memorable career that includes the 1998-99 NBA Rookie of the Year award and eight All-Star Game appearances. Should he earn a roster spot, as expected, he'll set some longevity records: most National Basketball Association seasons played and the first player to appear in an National Basketball Association game in four different decades. The other players with 21 seasons in the National Basketball Association include Robert Parish, Kevin Willis, Kevin Garnett and Dirk Nowitzki. Carter is highly regarded as an engaged mentor eager to teach young players about life in the league.

Carter played for the Hawks last season and averaged 7.4 points and 2.6 rebounds and 17.5 minutes over 76 games. He started nine games.

Look back at Vince Carter's most electrifying moments from his NBA career, including his epic 2000 NBA Slam Dunk Contest performance. He has averaged 17 points in 1,481 regular-season games, and he won an Olympic gold medal and National Basketball Association dunk contest in 2000.

While Carter may be chasing history, he's more than earned the opportunity to return to the league during a season in which he'll turn 43 years old. Carter would break Parish's record if he started the 2019 season opener for the Hawks.
