The days of Vinsanity may be long gone, but the2000 Slam Dunk champ can still punish the rim at 41 years old. His true value to NBA teams, however, iswith the experience he brings. Which is why theHawks, who are into the second year of their roster rebuild, signed Carter to a one-yearcontract in July.
"This is probably Carter's final season before he transitions to broadcasting full time. He saidthis summer that he's "90-something percent" sure he'll retire at the end of the season." -- ESPN NBA reporter Tim MacMahon
ESPN NBA 的记者Tim MacMahon 报道说：“这很有可能是卡特的最后一个赛季，在这之后他将做一位全职的广播员。他说这赛季结束后，他有百分之九十几的可能性退役。”
His production and his minutes have dropped in recent seasons, but the 40-year-old big manremains a tough cover on the perimeter. He shot 41 percent from 3-point range last season, and his presence on the floor still commands respects and opens up space for his teammatesto operate.
"Nowitzki doesn't plan to make a decision on whether to retire until after this season. "I'mgoing to leave the door open on if I'm going to play another [season], but I'm going toapproach this as if there's no tomorrow," Nowitzki said, citing how his body feels as theprimary factor on whether he'll come back for a 22nd season." -- ESPN NBA reporter TimMacMahon
Terry insists that he's going to play a 20th season, and the team that takes a chance on him willget a shooter that can still fill it up from long range.

But in 2016-17, he recorded the second-highest 3-point percentage of his career at42.7 percent.
"This might not be up to Terry, who is still waiting for a call this summer. "-- ESPN NBA reporterTim MacMahon
