After saying early this year that 2012-13 might be his last season, he now says his perfect scenario is to play two more years. “The only thing that is getting older is my age (as a number,’’ said Carter. “I’ve got low mileage. I can still help a team.’’ Carter’s agent, Bill Duffy, is searching for interested teams. Carter believes he can help a team as a third point guard and in a role as another assistant coach. Carter said he will start workouts next week at the Pepsi Center along with Coby Karl, George’s son who plays overseas, and several young Denver players. Sulia

Carter is not with the team. He has gone back home to Denver. But he has not been officially waived by the Raptors. Carter’s agent, Bill Duffy, is trying to find a team for his client to go to; he’s looking for a club that may be interested in a veteran guard for help and depth with a playoff run. IF Duffy can find a taker, one of three scenarios will unfold with Carter: - he’ll be waived before the trade deadline - he’ll be waived right after the trade deadline - he’ll be included in a trade (either on his own or with another member of the Raps) FAN590

The Anthony Carter era with the Raptors lasted less than a season. The Raptors are going to try to either move the veteran guard in some transaction or release him in the next week and a half, according to a team source. Toronto Star

Carter served his purpose in a 37-game stint with the Raptors, providing some veteran leadership and filling in as an emergency third-string point guard. But a desire to use even more youth and wanting to let Carter see if he can hook up with a playoff-bound team if he’s eventually released, led to Tuesday’s move. The source said there was no one moment that precipitated the move – Carter’s missed the last three games with a stomach muscle problem – and that Carter had done what was expected of him in helping “change the culture” around the team.

Carter played with the Heat from 1999-2003, and is now with his sixth NBA team in 13 seasons. But his days of returning to Miami as a player are winding down. "Probably one year and then I'll start coaching," Carter, 36, said of his plan to retire after next season and become an NBA assistant. FOXSports Florida

"Me and George have been talking about it for the last two years about me coaching with him, so I'm looking forward to that experience and that challenge," Carter said. "I've been talking to Sam Cassell (of Washington) about how it is, and with Tyronn Lue with Boston. Those are guys who I played (against)." FOXSports Florida
