The Dallas Mavericks hoped to re-signed swingman Vince Carter.
Late Friday night, Carter made his move on a busy day in the association. He has signed a three-year contract with the Memphis Grizzlies.
The Mavericks wanted to wait until they find out if the Houston Rockets signed Chandler Parson to an offer sheet. Carter did not wanted to wait until Sunday night to make his move.
He averaged 11.9 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.6 assists, and 1.8 three-pointers per game in 81 games with the Mavericks. With his limited role, Carter should be able to keep up his backup role, before his legs give out on him.
The 37-year-old spent the past three years with the Mavs. Before Dallas, he played a season each with the Orlando Magic and the Phoenix Suns.
He spent his first 11-years in the NBA with the Toronto Raptors and the New Jersey Nets, who are now the Brooklyn Nets.
Vince Carter has agreed to a three-year, $12M deal with Memphis, league source tells Yahoo Sports.
