Twenty-one-season NBA veteran Vince Carter says next season will probably be his last.

Speak Wednesday on ESPN’s The Jump, Carter said “I got one more in me,” when asked how much longer he will play. “I’m at one. This is [my] last one.”

Carter, 42, is the oldest player in the NBA. He spent last season with the Atlanta Hawks and recently announced he would be “coming back” for at least one more season.

He doesn’t have a team to play for yet next season as his contract with the Hawks expired.

Carter is best known for his years with the Toronto Raptors as one of the franchise’s first true superstars.
