Vince Carter Announces that the 2019-20 Season Will be His Last
Before Vince Carter calls it quits, he will set a record when he plays his 22nd and final NBA season.
Carter, who is slowly transitioning into a basketball analyst role during his offseasons came onto ESPN’s The Jump to announce that the upcoming campaign will be his last. The pending free agent spent last season with the Atlanta Hawks and is looking to give things one last go.
“I’ve got one more in me,” said the 42-year old veteran.
A career that began in Toronto, Carter has since played with seven other teams, including the then New Jersey Nets, the Dallas Mavericks, and the Sacramento Kings. A 10-time All-Star and a top player in this league at his prime, Carter has been able to adapt in today’s NBA every step of the way as his athleticism began to fade with age.
As for where UNC alum will play next year?
Well, the Hawks will get the advantage going into the offseason, but this interaction between Toronto Raptors president of basketball operations Masai Ujiri and Carter prior to Game 3 of the NBA Finals last night may hint that a potential reunion in Toronto is not out of the realm of possibility.

Carter will turn 43 during next season and it will be interesting to see where his career takes him next!
Will it all end where it all began? Will the Raptors allow for Carter’s career to come full-circle?
