Anthony Carter, the former Heat player whose agent famously failed to notify the team he would be exercising his $4.1 million player option for the 2003-04 season, thus opening the door for Pat Riley to sign Lamar Odom and then trade him and a package of players for Shaquille O’Neal, rejoined the franchise last week when he agreed to become an assistant with the organization’s Development League affiliate the Sioux Falls Skyforce. “It’s just a great feeling,” Carter, 41, told the Miami Herald Tuesday of rejoining the franchise that helped get his NBA career started. “Thursday when I flew out to meet Spo [coach Erik Spoelstra] it was like nothing changed. We already had a history and just by being here on the first day it’s just a great feeling. I fit right in.”
As for the infamous mistake Carter’s agent Bill Duffy made back in 2003 that cost him more than $3 million, Carter said it’s all ancient history. Duffy agreed to make it up to him years ago and has kept his word, paying him in installments over the years. “In the end it was a blessing,” Carter said. “I’m still getting paid from it. Everything happens for a reason and my agent was man enough to stand up and just pay me over a period of time. To this day, I’m still getting paid. I’m still getting paid until 2020.”
