Veteran free agent Vince Carter has agreed to a one-year deal with the Atlanta Hawks, according to Adrian Wojnarowski, of ESPN.

The deal is reportedly worth $2.4 million, the veteran minimum salary.  The Hawks wanted Carter's leadership as a presence in their locker room.

For the Toronto Raptors, who Barn Burner first reported were in talks with Carter, it's a missed opportunity.  Carter was interested in finishing out his career in the place it first began.  After trading DeMar DeRozen, the Raptors would've benefited from a veteran locker room presence.
