Vince Carter joins the Grizzlies
It appears that Vince Carter has been signed by the Grizzlies according to a report from Yahoo! Sports Adrian Wojnarowski:
I just recently wrote about how the Grizzlies need to get moving in signing a free agent, and it seems that they did just that.
I love the Carter signing. Vince Carter is at the tail end of his career, but he is still a great three point shooter and average defender. The deal is for 3 years and $12 million, which is really a bargain in this current free agent market. Yes, Carter will be 38 come January, but his game has held up really well as he’s aged, and the third year of his deal will only be partially guaranteed.
This clearly means that Memphis has moved on from Mike Miller, but frankly Vince Carter could be considered an upgrade. Miller was looking to sign with Denver, but then in the wake of LeBron’s decision, he appears to be going to Cleveland. It would have been nice to see Miller end his career in Memphis, but going to Cleveland is obviously a great opportunity for him as well.
I love the pickup, and hopefully the Grizzlies will keep making great moves like this.
