BIOGRAPHY

Vince Carter is currently inactive. 

He was born on January 26, 1977 in Daytona Beach, FL. He is listed at 6-foot-6 and weighs 220 lbs. 

Carter went to high school at Mainland (FL) and then went on to attend the University of North Carolina. He was drafted by the Golden State Warriors as the No. 5 overall pick in 1998. He never played for the Warriors though as he was traded to the Toronto Raptors for his college teammate, Antawn Jamison, shortly after Golden State had selected him. 

During his NBA career he played 7 seasons with the Toronto Raptors, 5 seasons with the Brooklyn Nets, 2 seasons with the Orlando Magic, 1 season with the Phoenix Suns, 3 seasons with the Dallas Mavericks, 3 seasons with the Memphis Grizzlies, 1 season with the Sacramento Kings and 2 seasons with the Atlanta Hawks.

Known for his dynamic athleticism and freakish vertical jump, Carter quickly became a walking highlight reel everytime he stepped foot on the court. 

Carter was named NBA Rookie of the Year in 1999 and followed that season up by being named All-NBA Third-Team in 2000. He’s an 8-time all-star and was also the NBA Dunk Champion in 2000.
