Vince Carter re-signs with Hawks, expected to retire after season
Vince Carter is officially returning to play a 22nd NBA season, but he is planning on making it his last.
Carter has agreed to a deal to return to the Atlanta Hawks next season, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski first reported. He has also apparently decided that he will play just one more year.
Carter will play his 22nd year at 42 years old — with an expectation that he will retire after the 2019-20 season. https://t.co/SdJWYRVwC7

Carter is 42, so it’s incredible that he is still considered an NBA-caliber player. He was productive for the Hawks last season, averaging 7.4 points and 2.6 rebounds in 17.5 minutes per game. The eight-time All-Star has never won a championship, but he recently said he was not planning to chase a ring next season. He obviously has enjoyed his time in Atlanta and is comfortable ending his remarkable career there.
