According to league sources, veteran guard Vince Carter will return to the Atlanta Hawks on a one-year contract for what will be a record-breaking 22nd NBA season. In doing so, he will become the first player to appear in four separate decades.

The 42-year-old Carter, a free agent this summer, has said the 2019-20 season will be his last, ending a memorable career that includes the 1998-99 NBA Rookie of the Year award and eight All-Star Game appearances.
