Vince Carter has played 21 seasons in the NBA and it looks like he will be playing a 22nd. The 42-year-old, who became famous for his dunks with the Toronto Raptors, just came off a season with the Atlanta Hawks and is apparently ready for more. On the latest episode of his “Winging It” Podcast on The Ringer, Carter was speaking to his co-host and teammate Kent Bazemore when he simply said, “I’m Coming Back.”
Fans have been wondering for a while now when exactly Carter would retire and many thought that this would be his last season. At times this year, Carter showed people that he still has it and can even get a few dunks off when he wants to. Carter will turn 43 in January and is a Free Agent this Summer which means his career will only continue if he gets signed by someone. With a plethora of great free agents available, it’s unsure whether a team will be in need of a player like him.
Carter has played for eight different teams throughout his career with averages of 17.2 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 3.2 assists. It will be interesting to see if Carter winds up on a team and whether or not 2019-2020 will indeed be his final year.
