Vince Carter plans to continue his NBA playing career for a 22nd season.

“I’m coming back,” Carter said.

Carter could re-sign with the Atlanta Hawks.

“I would like to,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.”

Carter and Dirk Nowitzki just completed their 21st season in the NBA and joined Robert Parish, Kevin Willis and Kevin Garnett as the longest-tenured players in history. If Carter returns, he will be alone at the top of the list.
