Carter signed on for a 20th National Basketball Association season Thursday, agreeing to a 1-year $8 million contract with the Sacramento Kings.

At age 40, Vince Carter is still going strong.

Carter gives the Kings an experienced player who can provide minutes at small forward.

Although his tenure in Memphis started rough, Carter has since bounced back in the last two seasons, showing that he still has something left in the tank.

Carter shot 37.8% from 3-point range last season for Memphis while playing in 73 games. Couple that with a tremendously successful 2017 NBA Draft, and the Kings appear ready to be competitive this upcoming season. Carter's addition will help Joerger keep young players out of situations they're unprepared to handle. He's averaged 18.2 points for his career.

The eight-time All-Star ranks 22nd on the league's all-time scoring list with 24,555 career points.

Carter is the third veteran to agree to a deal this week.
