Vince Carter has signed with an NBA team. Carter will enter his 21 st NBA season with the Atlanta Hawks after signing a one-year deal with the team.

After signing with the Hawks, Carter, 41, is on his third team in the last three seasons. He spent the 2017-18 season with the Sacramento Kings, and was on the Memphis Grizzlies prior to that.

The eight-time NBA All-Star might not play at the level he once did, but he'll provide veteran leadership for a very young team.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski broke the news.

Carter played in 58 games last season, producing 5.4 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 1.2 assists per game. He was good for just under 20 minutes per game.

According to Shams Charania, Carter signed for the veteran minimum of $2.4 million.

Carter currently sits in 22nd place on the NBA's all-time scoring list, just behind Jerry West. He'd have an outside shot at passing the Logo in points scored - Carter would need four points per game over a full season to pass West.
