Vince Carter still plans to play another season but will not chase ring

The ageless wonder known as Vince Carter still intends to lace them up for another year, but he won’t be selling out to do it.

In an interview with The New York Post’s Andrew Marchand published Thursday, the 42-year-old, who remains unsigned, said that his desire to play another season has not changed.

“We’re still working on it,” he said. “In the pecking order, I know where I fall.”

But when confronted with the idea of chasing a ring, which he has yet to win in 21 NBA seasons, Carter was adamant that he would not do so if it meant that would not be able to take an active part in the rotation.

“Not my thing,” the eight-time All-Star said. “Just not my thing. I prefer to play because I know I can compete at that level. That’s what I enjoy.”

Carter was still productive for the Atlanta Hawks last season, averaging 7.4 points and 2.6 rebounds in 17.5 minutes per game. He recently reconnected with his former team, the Toronto Raptors, when they won their first-ever NBA title last month, but it seems like he is content to finish his own career without one if the situation isn’t right.
