Vince Carter Is Coming Back For A 22nd Season In The NBA

Hawks forward Vince Carter announced that he plans to return for an National Basketball Association record-setting 22nd season on Tuesday during an appearance on the "Wingin It" podcast with teammate Kent Bazemore.

Should he return to the Hawks or sign with another team (Carter is an unrestricted free agent), he would become the first player in National Basketball Association history to play 22 seasons.

"I would like to", Carter added. "We'll see what happens".

Carter, 42, is expected to become a free agent July 1 when his contract expires.

Fans have been wondering for a while now when exactly Carter would retire and many thought that this would be his last season. If Carter comes back, he will set the record for most seasons played, beating out Kevin Garnett, Dirk Nowitzki, Robert Parish, and Kevin Willis. 21-plus years later, Carter has the chance to break new grounds in terms of National Basketball Association longevity.

Carter has played for eight different teams throughout his career with averages of 17.2 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 3.2 assists. Who is rooting against him at this point?
