As last season ended, Vince Carter said he wanted to play probably one – but maybe two – more seasons.

After signing with the Hawks, 41-year-old Carter seems to be zeroing in on one.

Ian Begley of ESPN:

Carter added that he’s ’90-something percent’ sure that he will retire after the 2018-19 season.

He said he decided to join the Hawks for ‘an opportunity’ to play and also to pursue his post-retirement plans.

Carter said he plans to pursue a broadcasting career after he retires.

Carter has had a great career. He’s the best dunker in NBA history, and his longevity after stardom is unprecedented.

NBA TV is based in Atlanta, and I wouldn’t be surprised if transitions during the season into a role with the network.

This all but makes extinct hope of him playing again for the Raptors, but those reunions rarely meet expectations. Carter has already accomplished so much. If he’s ready to walk away, he shouldn’t chase storylines like that.

After next season, it’ll probably be time for him tell the stories rather than make them.

Rosy retirement assumptions invite rude financial awakening .
<p>Working longer can boost the odds of a secure retirement: That is an article of faith in retirement planning circles these days.</p>But many people do not wind up working as long as they expect or hope. And baking in too much optimism about career longevity to your retirement plan can take a heavy toll.
