The 2019-20 NBA season was set up to be the most exciting campaign in recent memory. There were many superstars that switched teams in hopes of winning a championship.
It began last June when Anthony Davis was sent to the Los Angeles Lakers to team up with LeBron James. One month later, Jimmy Butler was traded to Miami and Russell Westbrook was sent to Houston in a deal that landed Chris Paul with the Oklahoma City Thunder. Kawhi Leonard and Paul George joined the Los Angeles Clippers. The list goes on and on.
Unfortunately, the season was delayed due to a global pandemic but it is set to return to action on July 30. Teams have already reported to practice down in Orlando. There will be 22 teams in the bubble competing for an NBA title. One player that will not be reporting is Vince Carter. The future Hall of Famer decided to hang up the sneakers after 22 years in the NBA.
Every year, players decide to retire from the game they have played for their entire lives. Here are five players that could choose to join Carter in retirement following the 2019-20 season.
