Veteran Vince Carter agrees to join Kings on one-year deal

The 40-year-old is the NBA's oldest active player.

Carter shot 37.8% from 3-point range last season for Memphis while playing in 73 games. The Kings also reached deals with forward Randolph (two years, $24 million) and guard George Hill (three years, $57 million).

Sacramento represents the seventh different team Carter has played for throughout his time in the league.

Aside from Carter's abilities on the court, he will add to the positive, nurturing culture the Kings are looking to build.

Gang Riot Leaves 28 Dead In Mexico Prison
Relatives gathered outside the prison after hearing about the riot and called for information about those they knew. In March 2017, 29 accused drug cartel members allegedly tunneled their way out of a prison in Tamaulipas state.

The report was confirmed to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski by Carter's agents.

Although his tenure in Memphis started rough, Carter has since bounced back in the last two seasons, showing that he still has something left in the tank. Whether that goes for players they could sign to two-way contracts remains to be seen.

Over the course of his storied career, former UNC men's basketball star Vince Carter has certainly lived up to his "Half-Man, Half-Amazing" nickname and then some.
