Mavericks Close To Deal With Vince Carter

After losing Caron Butler to free agency, the Mavs look like a good fit for Vince. He’d come off the bench and provide some scoring for a deep Dallas team: “Sources tell ESPN that Mavs closing in on signing of Vince Carter and could have deal to reunite VC w/Jason Kidd done as early as Saturday. Carter waived Friday by Phoenix so Suns could buy out his $18 mil salary for $4 mil. Mavs quickly into advanced talks w/ VC for vet depth.”

    I hope it happens, it’d be good to see VC actually ending his career with a contender

  • Nick

    Dallas is not a contender.

    VC wasn’t much in Phoenix ,won’t change in Dallas.

    VC is making a bad choice in going to the downtrodden Mavs, he could start on a number of teams in the NBA. I would have loved to see VC in a Bobcats jersey or Indianna or coming off the bench in LA or the starting on the BUlls. Bulls should have gotten him, VC career will end badly from here. Deshawn playing the 2 guard for Dallas, makes more sense, even bringing VC off the bench is dumb.

    With Chandler and Butler gone, and the rest of the core a year older, I don’t see the Mavs getting past the West finals this year, if that. Carter contributes little to any of their holes.

    @the seed
    You contradict yourself in your comments.

    I hope that JKidd and the possibility to play playoff basketball again are motivation enough for VC.

    “I would have loved to see VC in a Bobcats jersey or Indianna…” – you can’t hate him that much.

  • Yesse

    I don’t think this is a bad solution. I think Mavs still are contenders.

    Coming from a Suns fan, this guy is a Bum. He has next to nothing left.

    How did the Mavs somehow manage to get older?
    Shortened season will help him, but Vince hasn’t contributed much in a long time

    mann VC still has game whether u like it or not, and the mavs are a good fit. VC can ball but he cnt do the things he used to do. bringing him bac with jkidd will increase chemistry but why do they need a 2 when they hav terry and stevenson?? its a good option for vc.
    i rather see VC to the nuggets. wher hell actually be wanted since the departure of jr swish(who i want to join bulls)

    As a Mavs fan, I only have one thing to say:

    I’ve never known a team that won the championship to have so much doubt from people. Never underestimate the heart of a champion – Rudy once told me.
