Vince Carter Agrees to New Deal, to Finish NBA Career with the Hawks

“I got one more run in me.”

Vince Carter is set to become the first player in NBA history to play in four different decades after signing a one year deal with the Atlanta Hawks on Monday. The upcoming season will mark his record-setting 22nd year in the league. Dirk Nowitzki, Kevin Garnett, Kevin Willis and Robert Parish all played 21 NBA seasons.

Carter, who spent last season with the Hawks as well, plans to retire after this year.

The 42 year old averaged 7.4 points in 17 minutes per game last season. As in previous years, rumours circulated that there was a chance of Carter returning to the Toronto Raptors for his final year. Rumours were compounded when the Raptors waived Jordan Loyd, opening up a roster spot for the future Hall of Famer.

In 22 seasons, Carter has never won an NBA championship, but he has cracked eight All-Star teams.
