  • Vince Carter: Closes out career

    Carter announced Thursday in the latest episode of his "Winging It with Vince Carter" podcast that he has retired from the NBA.

    The oldest player in the league at 43 years old, Carter spent 22 seasons in the NBA and emerged as one of the game's iconic stars right away in 1998-99, when he took home Rookie of the Year honors. The following season, Carter began a streak of eight consecutive All-Star nods and went on to win the Slam Dunk Contest in one of the most memorable performances in the event's history. After a decade of stardom in Toronto and New Jersey, Carter transitioned into more of a supporting role in the back half of his career, doing most of his damage as a three-point specialist while providing a positive veteran presence for the Magic, Suns, Mavericks, Grizzlies, Kings and Hawks. He finishes his career with 1,541 regular-season appearances and averages of 16.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 1.5 three-pointers and 1.0 steals in 30.1 minutes per game.

  • Hawks' Vince Carter: Poor scoring efforts of late

    Carter notched three points during Wednesday's 127-105 loss at the Cavaliers.

    Carter has posted single-scoring efforts in three straight games and while he has logged double-digit minutes in 10 of his last 12 outings off the bench, that hasn't translated to decent scoring figures. The veteran is averaging just 6.3 points per game on 39.7 shooting from the field during that stretch, and he shouldn't have a lot of upside even in the deepest formats.

  • Hawks' Vince Carter: Complete effort off bench

    Carter delivered 14 points (4-8 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 24 minutes off the bench during Thursday's 127-117 win over the Sixers.

    Carter hasn't played much of a role for the Hawks this season and has been struggling to get playing time -- he rarely sees over 20 minutes of action and even when he does, he's not a lock for guaranteed scoring figures. As a result, Carter should remain on waivers until further notice, even if he has decent scoring performances from time to time.

  • Hawks' Vince Carter: Claims another NBA milestone

    Carter scored three points (1-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt) to go with three rebounds and one assist in 18 minutes Saturday in the Hawks' 116-111 win over the Pacers.

    After sitting out the front end of the Hawks' back-to-back set Friday in Boston, Carter came off the bench for his first appearance of 2020. In so doing, the 42-year-old became the first player in NBA history to play in four different decades, per Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Expect Carter to achieve a few more longevity-related records over the next few months in what may be the final season of his career.

  • Hawks' Vince Carter: Delights MSG crowd with 15 points

    Carter put up 15 points (5-9 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 1-3 FT), two blocks and one assist in 24 minutes off the bench Tuesday in the Hawks' 143-120 loss to the Knicks.

    In what was likely his final game at Madison Square Garden, Carter drew a rousing ovation from the crowd and was able to feed off the energy. The 42-year-old still has the ability to light it up from the outside every now and then when he's given open looks, but Tuesday's performance still represents a clear outlier. Even after the 4-for-7 showing, he's still converting at only a 30.8 percent clip from distance this season.

  • Hawks' Vince Carter: Scores season-high 17 points

    Carter had 17 points (7-11 FG, 3-6 3PT), two assists, one rebound and one block in 20 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 122-107 win at Charlotte.

    Carter reached the 20-minute plateau for the second time this season, and scored in double figures just for the third time. The veteran small forward might not have much left in the tank, but he can still produce when given enough minutes. Unfortunately, that won't be enough to make him fantasy relevant unless he can see a drastic uptick on his playing time moving forward.
