National Basketball Association free agency grades: Sacramento Kings to add Vince Carter

The 40-year-old is the NBA's oldest active player.

The 40-year-old agreed Thursday to a one-year, $8 million contract with the Sacramento Kings-a deal which will take him into his 20th National Basketball Association season.

Carter earned a 0.6 nERD in 73 games last season.

Despite being the oldest active player in the entire National Basketball Association, he still averaged eight points and three rebounds per game last season while coming off the bench for the Memphis Grizzlies. The Grizzlies were the sixth team he has played with in his Hall of Fame-caliber career.

Doomfist finally arrives as Overwatch's newest hero
For now, Doomfist is available for play right now in the Public Testing Region of Overwatch which is available on PC only. After charging up, Doomfist lunges forward and knocks an enemy back, dealing additional damage if they impact a wall.

As Marc Spears of ESPN notes, the Kings' roster is now full and they're reportedly not expecting to make any further moves, barring a trade coming to fruition at a later date. Hield, the sixth overall pick in the 2016 draft, broke out in March, averaging 14.1 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.8 assists on his way to being named Western Conference Rookie of the Month.

Aside from Carter's abilities on the court, he will add to the positive, nurturing culture the Kings are looking to build. He was a second-team All-NBA selection in 2001 and a third-team selection in 2000.

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