Vince Carter 90 Percent Sure He'll Retire In 2019

Aug 3, 2018 10:18 AM

Vince Carter signed a one-year, $2.4 million deal with the Atlanta Hawks this offseason, which could be his final contract in the NBA.

Carter said he's '90-something percent' sure that he will retire after the 18-19 season.  Carter plans on pursuing a career in broadcasting when he retires.

Carter said he's not interested in chasing a ring as he nears the end of his career, signing instead with the rebuilding Hawks after spending last season with the rebuilding Sacramento Kings.

"I come from an era where that's not how it was. So that's still instilled in me. And I don't have any problem with how it's done now. (It's) just not for me," Carter said.

Rockets, Pelicans Interested In Kent Bazemore

Jul 30, 2018 10:48 PM

The Houston Rockets are exploring a trade for a wing defender with Kent Bazemore a gettable target.

The Rockets attempted to sign Bazemore during the 2016 free agency.

The Hawks like Bazemore but would be willing to move him for the right offer as they rebuild their roster.

For the Hawks to take back a contract like Ryan Anderson, they would need a draft pick and/or a young player. Houston has been attempting to trade Anderson for months.

The New Orleans Pelicans are also interested in Bazemore, but the Hawks aren't interested in taking on Solomon Hill.

Hawks Trade Dennis Schroder, Mike Muscala To Thunder For Carmelo Anthony, 2022 FRP

Jul 19, 2018 4:45 PM

The Oklahoma City Thunder have agreed to trade Carmelo Anthony and a protected 2022 first round pick to the Atlanta Hawks for Dennis Schroder. Atlanta will also send Mike Muscala to the Philadelphia 76ers with Justin Anderson going to the Hawks. The 76ers will also send Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot to Oklahoma City.

The pick is protected 1-14 in 2022 and will become two second rounders if it doesn't convey.

Anthony will be waived and the Houston Rockets will be the frontrunner.

Sam Presti and Billy Donovan were given permission to talk with Schrroder and they're enthusiastic about a partnership.

Muscala is likely to be moved to a third team.

The Thunder's projected luxury tax bill, meanwhile, will drop from $150 million to $88.8 million, saving them $62 million. The Thunder will save an additional $11 million with Schroder's $15.5 million contract and the $1.5 million cap hit of Luwawu-Cabarrot. If the Thunder used the stretch provision on Anthony, they would have $9 million remaining over the next three years. Schroder makes $15.5 million per year compared to Anthony's $28 million for 18-19.
