Carter won’t commit to playing beyond his current contract. He will be a 19-year veteran when this deal expires and admits the idea of playing 20 is intriguing. “I never would have imagined it,” Carter said. His production will dictate his future and, though limited, he still shows flashes of brilliance. Earlier this month, against San Antonio, Carter froze Tim Duncan with a hesitation dribble.

To help, Carter has put in countless hours maintaining his body. He does regular leg work to try and keep as much of his spring as possible. He routinely lifts weights after practice.

Carter appreciates that the Mavs didn’t pass on him at a time when his stock wasn’t high after disappointing stints in Orlando and Phoenix. “[Mark] Cuban believed in me in the beginning when I guess a lot of people felt like I was just done or couldn’t play anymore,” Carter said. “I just got better and better. A lot of guys think when you get to that age, how can you get better? But I think I got better. I fit with this team. I think it worked and coach made it work. I was just glad to be a part of it.” ESPN.com
