NBA Rumors: Vince Carter, Toronto Raptors open to reunion


Might Vince Carter finish out the final years of his career where it all started, back in Toronto?

Seems a bit outlandish to suggest such given the one-time bad blood between the player and the organization (not to mention the fans), but lots has happened since those days.

Now the Raptors seem open to the idea of bringing Carter back:

Raptors GM Masai Ujiri recently sat down in an interview with CBC’s George Stroumboulopoulos and talked about several things related to Carter. When asked about a possible reunion, Ujiri mentioned the organization is more open than it was before.  Oh, and he also mentioned that Tim Leiweke, MLSE President and CEO, met with Carter when the Dallas Mavericks last came into town, with team owner Mark Cuban’s permission of course.

Carter for what it’s worth is completely down with the suggestion, hinting he’d be thrilled to return.

“If (Toronto) gave me the opportunity, I don’t even think I’d let them finish the question. Yes. I’m in,”

The man we once knew as Vinsanity said he’s looking to play around two more seasons, though his current team the Dallas Mavericks have also expressed interest in him returning.

    Vince should go to New Jersey to get his legacy, here in Toronto we dont need fake idols, he let us down and put back the franchise for so many years, bringing him back is an insult to the real basketball fans
