  • Grizzlies Sign Vince Carter To 3 Years $12.2 Million

    Vince Carter set to join the Memphis Grizzlies - ESPN

    Carter is still a decent player at his age. Hard to believe it was 15 years ago when he was as big as Lebron is now.

    Vince Carter is leaving the Dallas Mavericks to join the Memphis Grizzlies, according to sources close to the process.

    Sources told that Carter was finalizing a three-year, $12.2 million contract Friday night to join the Grizzlies, who have coveted him for some time.

    The Mavericks were hopeful of keeping Carter but didn't have the financial flexibility to pay him the sort of money Memphis offered after extending a three-year, $46 million offer sheet to Houston Rockets restricted free agent Chandler Parsons.

    The Grizzlies tried hard to acquire Carter in a deal at the 2013 trade deadline but traded instead for Tayshaun Prince when Dallas pulled out of the talks.

    Memphis had hoped to re-sign Mike Miller but quickly turned its attention to Carter this week when it became apparent that Miller was intent on joining LeBron James with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
