Nichols forced Carter to clarify, which is where the announcement came in, as he spent this past season with the young Atlanta Hawks. He is a free agent heading in to the off-season, and could very well sign somewhere that will include the NBA Playoffs in spring 2020.
Heading in to next season, Carter is currently tied with Dirk Nowitzki of the Dallas Mavericks for the longest career in NBA history, but Nowitzki retired this past year. The highlight-reel player is well known for his time with the Toronto Raptors, which included a 2000 Slam Dunk contest that brought to life "Vincanity." In his 22 seasons, he has averaged 17.2 points and 4.4 rebounds, and was fairly productive for Atlanta in 2018-2019, posting 7.4 and 2.6 rebounds per game.
