NBA legend Vince Carter shared his thoughts on some of his plans after he retires from basketball at the end of the current season.

The forward of the Atlanta Hawks said he wants to become the owner of an NBA team and a mentor for the young players.

“I want to do some broadcasting. I want to stay around the game. I want to continue to be a mentor in some capacity. I have aspirations of being a part of an ownership group. I don’t make that kind of money to own a team outright like [NBA legend and Charlotte Hornets owner Michael Jordan].

But at some point, I want to be a part of an ownership group where I can still be that mentor that they need, and I want to be the middle man to bridge the gap for the ownership/executive side,” the Hawks veteran said during his appearance on the Tip “T.I.” Harris on the expediTIously podcast, as transcribed by Paul Kasabian of the Bleacher Report.
