Free Agent Vince Carter has signed a 1-year deal with the Sacramento Kings worth $8 million. The story broke Thursday afternoon, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Carter spent the past three seasons with the Memphis Grizzlies as a serviceable role player averaging 6.9 points and 2.5 rebounds. He also shot 37.8 percent from the 3-point line. Carter will spend his 20th NBA season mentoring a young team in need of veteran leadership.

While no longer the player he was in his prime, Carter has shown he still can play in today’s NBA game. He fits the mold of the modern 3-and-D guy in the game. Carter bridges the gap between the game of old and now. In fact, he remains one of only two active players drafted in 1998, alongside Dirk Nowitzki.

Carter now becomes another piece of a successful off season for the Kings. He will take on the tasks of being a professional presence in a young locker room along with George Hill and his former Memphis teammate, Zach Randolph. He will help shape the core of De’Aaron Fox, Harry Giles, Justin Jackson, Willie Cauley-Stein and Buddy Hield.
