#2 Vince Carter is set to end his career with the Atlanta Hawks
Despite turning 42 earlier this year, Vince Carter continues to make a solid impact from the bench. During the 18-19 season, Carter played 76 times for the Atlanta Hawks, averaging 7.4 points in 17 minutes a game.
Following the conclusion of his deal, the former All-Star has been linked with a return to the Toronto Raptors, although ESPN is reporting that the veteran will return to Atlanta for a final season:
Eight-time All-Star Vince Carter has agreed to a one-year contract to return to the Atlanta Hawks for his final NBA season, league sources told ESPN.
Carter is unlikely to make the playoffs in his final season with the Hawks, although he will set the NBA record for most seasons played (22). Carter is an 8-time All-Star and has been widely backed as a future Hall of Famer.
