Carter plans to retire following the 2019-20 season, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

A free agent this summer, Carter, who appeared on ESPN's The Jump on Wednesday, noted that he'll give the Hawks the first chance of bringing him back for his age 42 season. Last season with Atlanta, he saw 17.5 minutes per night, averaging 7.4 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.1 assists. He'll likely play a similar role with whatever team he lands on next season. Carter has made two All-NBA teams, has played the fifth-most games in NBA history and is 20th in scoring all-time.

“There is always a place for Vince in terms of that leadership and what he brings,” Pierce said. “Vince, his role this next year wherever he ends up, is not about being the guy. It’s still the same role. It’s being able to show he’s got a little left in the tank. But more importantly when he came here last year it was ‘what do it do, how can I help?’ He understands how he has transitioned into that role.

Schlenk said there could be future roster moves to free up a roster spot. There appears to be a need for another center with just Len and Plumlee at the spot. The Hawks filled a need for another point guard by trading Kent Bazemore for Turner. The move also created minutes on the wing for players like Huerter, Hunter and Reddish.

“We’ll see,” Schlenk said of the whether there would be room for Carter.
