Vince Carter is not quite done yet.

The veteran forward announced Tuesday that he will return for a 22nd NBA season.

"I'm coming back," Carter said on his "Winging It" podcast with Atlanta Hawks teammate Kent Bazemore.

The 42-year-old signed a one-year deal with the Hawks last summer and is open to a return.

"I would like to," Carter said. "We'll see what happens."

Carter pondered the possibility of playing another season in March. He's currently tied with Kevin Willis, Robert Parish, and Kevin Garnett for the longest careers in league history.

The 10-time All-Star averaged 7.4 points on 41.9 percent shooting across 76 appearances for Atlanta. He passed Indiana Pacers legend Reggie Miller for 20th on the NBA's all-time scoring list and became the oldest player to hit seven 3-pointers. Carter sits sixth in league history with 2,229 career triples made.

Carter was drafted fifth overall by the Golden State Warriors in 1998. He was traded shortly thereafter to the Toronto Raptors, with whom he rose to prominence.
