On Thursday night, it was reported Vince Carter has agreed to a one year, 8 million dollar deal with the Sacramento Kings, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
He is returning for his 20th season in the NBA, and while he might not have joined a contender as was originally expected this offseason, he is receiving a great contract that any 40 year old athlete would love to have.
During his three year career in Memphis, he not only provided the Grizzlies with veteran experience and shooting, he provided the Half-Man, Half-Amazing highlights that only the lucky have got to see in person.
Vince Carter was one of the first big names to come to Memphis and helped bring the limelight to an underappreciated basketball city. He showed this isn’t only a place where legends are loved, they are also glorified.
Thank you for being a class act and thank you for three years of excellence!
