Vince Carter has no plans to retire
Mavericks wing thinks he still has several years left in the league, has no plans to retire as of now.
“I don’t want to do that to myself,” Carter said after Thursday morning’s practice. “I don’t want to limit myself. I think doing that you’ll start thinking about [retirement] as the season goes on. I’ll just let the body pretty much dictate how I’m feeling in the end.”
The 36-year-old Carter averaged 13 points, four rebounds, and two assists on 44 percent shooting for Dallas last season. Carter's cousin, Tracy McGrady, retired this offseason.
Carter's role will be especially interesting to watch this year with more guard depth after the signing of Jose Calderon, Monta Ellis, and Devin Harris along with the drafting of Ricky Ledo. He'll still likely get a lot of minutes at small forward, but there's no telling how the rotations are going to work out in Dallas this season.
Carter has aged surprisingly well, and his leadership has contributed in Dallas. The Mavs have swung out on a few acquisitions since 2011, but this one has been really great for them.
