So far, our player previews have focused on the young part of the Mavericks roster (Dahntay Jones excluded). We're now entering the "old guys" part of the preview and what better place to start than Vince Carter.

Carter was an interesting off-season addition last season. His reputation had gone from high-flying, electric swing-man to disinterested three-point chucker. Dallas needed help on the perimeter last year, and adding one that didn't get to the rim anymore and was over the age of 30 seemed absolutely silly. The old Mavericks got older with Carter.
