Vince Carter is set to become the first NBA player to play in four separate decades after agreeing to a one-year deal with the Atlanta Hawks. The 42-year-old forward will return to a young squad bursting with talent.
The agreement between Carter and the Hawks was announced on Friday.

As Carter outlined previously, the 2019-20 season will be his final year before retirement. Carter was selected with the No. 5 pick in the 1998 NBA Draft, six selections before the Pistons selected Bonzi Wells.
Carter and the Hawks will journey to Portland to face the Blazers on November 10.
