The agreement was first reported by ESPN.
Carter will continue to serve as a mentor to some of the NBA’s most promising young talent, including first-round picks D’Andre Hunter and Cam Reddish. He’ll also eclipse the record shared with Robert Parish, Kevin Garnett, Kevin Willis and recently retired Dirk Nowitzki for most seasons in the NBA.
When Vince Carter completes his 22nd NBA season, he can say he played in the 90s, 00s, 10s, 20s!
