Grizzlies agree to three-year deal with Vince Carter
Veteran guard set to join Memphis to provide wing scoring and playmaking.
The Memphis Grizzlies signed free agent Vince Carter to a multi-year contract, the team announced today. Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The contract is for three years and $12 million, according to Yahoo Sports. The third year of the deal is partially guaranteed, a key point as Carter turns 38 next season. The former Raptor and Net averaged 11.9 points and 3.5 rebounds for the Mavericks last season, shooting 39 percent from three.
The Grizzlies had a need for a wing who can shoot and create off the dribble. Carter provides that perfectly, and fits with Memphis' focus on veterans.
Memphis turned to Carter after negotiations broke down to try and re-sign Mike Miller. Miller posted to his Instagram Friday that the Grizzlies were 'moving on.' Miller is said to be considering the Cavaliers to re-join LeBron James along with the Nuggets and Thunder.
