Vince Carter likely to return to Mavericks?

The Dallas Mavericks have re-signed Dirk Nowitzki and Devin Harris and now must decide on what to do with their remaining free agents.

Vince Carter and Shawn Marion highlight the Mavs’ free agents. Both played vital roles last season for the team, but only one may being donning a Dallas jersey next season. According to Dwain Price of the Star-Telegram, Carter will probably be the choice.

Carter, 37,  has been with the team the last three seasons; he’s taken over the 6th man responsibility over the last two after the departure of Jason Terry. He averaged 11.9 points and shot 39.4% from three for the Mavs.

Marion, 36, has been in Dallas the last five seasons, starting the majority of his tenure. While he has slowed down, he’s still a capable defender and rebound for the team. He averaged 10.4 points and 6.5 rebounds this season.

With the team currently looking for a new starting small forward, it comes to no shock that Marion, and not Carter, could be playing for a new team next season.

Both have been linked to playoff contenders this offseason.
