Vince Carter Signs With Sacramento Kings, Will Play 20th NBA Season

At age 40, Vince Carter is still going strong.

Despite being the oldest active player in the entire National Basketball Association, he still averaged eight points and three rebounds per game last season while coming off the bench for the Memphis Grizzlies.

Also on Thursday, Rudy Gay, last season's starting small forward, agreed to a two-year deal with the San Antonio Spurs.

Many thought that Carter might join a title contender, allowing him to be a bench piece and role player, but Carter instead is joining a Sacramento Kings team that is a mixture of young and old.

Former NBA assistant general manager and ESPN analyst Bobby Marks is impressed with what the Kings have done in free agency so far.

Carter was the 1999 NBA Rookie of the Year and the 2000 slam dunk contest champion.

The 8-time All-Star looks to surpass Patrick Ewing for the 21st spot in the all-time scoring list and could even bump off Jerry West from the top 20 as his 24,555 point-total is just 638 points shy from the mark of the Laker legend. He averaged 8.0 points, 3.1 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.8 steals, and 1.5 3-pointers on.394 percent shooting from the field.

The addition of Carter comes the same week that Sacramento signed veterans George Hill and Zach Randolph.
