Default Vince Carter Would Like to End His Career in Toronto

Vince Carter Would Like to End His Career in Toronto



Before it all went to hell, Vince Carter became a superstar in Toronto (the Raptors’ first and only player to ever reach such an exulted status.) VC, soon-to-be 36, says that he would welcome the opportunity to play for the Raptors again as his NBA career winds down. Per TSN Radio 1050: “After admitting to being open to the possibility of returning in some form to the team that acquired him on draft day in 1998, current Dallas Maverick and former Toronto Raptor Vince Carter again attempted to reconcile with the city and team he was traded from nearly eight years ago. Since not long after the departure, Carter has attempted to patch the wounds he left behind as his career in Toronto wound down, repeatedly saying he loved the city and enjoyed the six years he spent there. [...] ‘If (Toronto) gave me the opportunity, I don’t even think I’d let them finish the question. Yes. I’m in,’ Carter said. ‘Could I see it? Absolutely,’ Carter continued. ‘I’d leave that up to the franchise. It all started in Toronto, I’d be a fool to ever forget that.’ At this point, Carter’s feelings are known, but the question is, how would Raptors fans feel about the return of the franchise’s greatest player to date? Has enough time passed to forgive and forget the moments that defined his last days in the city, or are basketball fans still bitter over the way things transpired in his final days, culminating in his one-sided trade to the New Jersey Nets?”

You know I have a great little 5 team 20 some player trade


But- would you like a Calderon for Vince, collison, Marion trade? I would think Dallas might love to clear 11+ mill more for next season, and Calderon would be the perfect fit for them to try and make a run this season

Isn't this the same article from November of last year when we played them? I don't really consider this newsworthy anymore. Vince Carter is now irrelevant.

Even 1-day contract may seem too much.

Only if it's a three team trade and we also get Nene.
