After making a flurry of moves earlier in the week, the final piece of the puzzle has been found in regards to the Sacramento Kings' roster.

Former NBA assistant general manager and ESPN analyst Bobby Marks is impressed with what the Kings have done in free agency so far. Carter is already the oldest active player in the National Basketball Association - now 40 years old.

The addition of Carter comes the same week that Sacramento signed veterans George Hill and Zach Randolph. The Grizzlies were the sixth team he has played with in his Hall of Fame-caliber career. The 6-foot-6 swingman averaged 8.0 points and 3.1 rebounds for the Grizzlies last season. The 40-year-old can still play at high level.

Under the terms of the offer , Worldpay shareholders would own about 41 percent of the share capital of the combined company. Vantiv will dominate the board with seven members, including Charles Drucker as executive chairman and co-chief executive.


Although his tenure in Memphis started rough, Carter has since bounced back in the last two seasons, showing that he still has something left in the tank.

Aside from Carter's abilities on the court, he will add to the positive, nurturing culture the Kings are looking to build.

After taking the lead role in the Toronto Raptors and New Jersey Nets, Carter has turned into a valuable mentor and off-the-bench scorer late in his career.
