Mark Cuban Hopes Vince Carter Remains With Mavericks

While Mark Cuban has been supremely disappointed in himself and his team about this lottery-bound season, his mood changes radically when the subject of Vince Carter comes up.

“I feel bad for Vince,” he said. “Vince is a warrior. All these things I’ve heard in the past about him being soft and not playing hard, (that’s bull). That dude comes out to deliver every night.

“I feel worse for Vince than I do for Dirk (Nowitzki). Vince hasn’t been there and he’s had two great seasons for us. And he’s just a first-class guy who busts his (tail) every game. You never look at Vince and say he’s taking a play off. I’m proud that he’s on the Mavericks. The guy lays it out every time. I can’t put it any other way. He’s one of those guys I want to retire here.”

Does that mean Carter will be with the Mavericks beyond next season, when his contract expires?

“I hope so,” Cuban said. “The current trend is, as guys get older, they lose a little weight and I think Vince is athletic enough and smart enough and genetically gifted enough that if he goes on that same Steve Nash, Dirk, Tim Duncan path, where you lose a little bit of weight every year and keep your spring, he’s a genetic freak.

“He can play for more than a year, easily. He’ll be cranking those motorcycle handles for a while.”

Vince Carter wants to remain with the Dallas Mavericks next season.

“I think I’ve earned the right to stick around,” Carter said.

Carter has been a good value for Dallas on his three-year, $9.3 million contract.

“My fingers are crossed,” he said. “Next year might be even better. We can attract some more people, more talent. Now I know my role, and I know the system, it’s second nature to me now. I know the city very well. I’m stepping out, going to SMU games and getting out and about. I’m very comfortable here.

“I like the guys. I like the nucleus we have here. With my role and the way I play and the way I go about things, it really helps guys here. And they like that. Hopefully, that’s enough so that they can still have trust in me enough to play significant minutes and help the other guys out.”

The Toronto Raptors are internally considering pursuing Vince Carter in free agency.

Carter wants to re-sign with the Dallas Mavericks by all accounts after finishing his three-year, $9 million deal.

Carter was traded by the Raptors to the then-New Jersey Nets in 2004.
