Father Time hasn’t stopped Vince Carter just yet.
Although old age has brought Carter’s game below the rim as time has gone on, the 41-year-old former UNC star agreed Wednesday evening to a one-year deal with the Atlanta Hawks–a deal that will see him play in the NBA for the 21st consecutive year.
Carter reportedly signed a contract worth the veteran’s minimum of $2.4 million according to Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports.
Playing for the eighth team in his storied career, Carter is expected to provide a steadying veteran presence to a young Hawks team built around rookie guard Trae Young and second-year forward John Collins.
With the Sacramento Kings in a similar role last season, the Florida native averaged a career-low 5.4 points per game while averaging 17.7 minutes of playing time off the bench.
