The 22-year veteran played for the Nets for four and half seasons after he was traded from the Toronto Raptors to the Nets — back when the franchise was located in New Jersey.
Vince Carter had some of his most successful seasons of his career as a Net, earning two All-Star appearances in his stint with the team. In the 2004-05 season, the 6-foot-6 wing averaged 27.5 points, 5.9 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game.
Even into his 40s, Carter is still contributing on the court. For the Hawks, Vinsanity is averaging 4.7 points and 1.9 rebounds in 15.5 minutes per contest.
This summer, Carter announced that this season would be his last. The 42-year-old has played for eight different teams in his career and has made an All-NBA team twice.
The Hawks and the Nets have already played twice prior to Sunday’s game, with Brooklyn winning both matchups.
