Former Sacramento Kings wing, Vince Carter may be nearing the end of his career.
Carter is returning for his 21st NBA campaign after signing with the Atlanta Hawks, but he revealed he is “90-something percent” sure the 2018-19 season will be his last during a phone conference with ESPN’s Ian Begley.
“It’s a love. It’s tough to walk away. Obviously when it’s time, it’s time. But I’m still passionate about it”
After playing for the Toronto Raptors in the beginning of his career, the veteran guard has spent the rest of his career moving around the league.
He spent four-and-a-half years with the then-New Jersey Nets before spending time with the Orlando Magic, the Phoenix Suns, the Dallas Mavericks, the Memphis Grizzlies, the Sacramento Kings and, now, the Hawks.
“I come from an era where that’s not how it was. So that’s still instilled in me. And I don’t have any problem with how it’s done now. (It’s) just not for me.
“I still want to play the game. Whatever minutes are there, I want (them).”
Carter would consider signing with a contender next offseason for the right opportunity, but he acknowledged that this is pretty much the end of the road.
“I think before that happens I’ll probably retire anyway,” he said.
