Eight-time NBA All-Star Vince Carter, who just signed with the Atlanta Hawks, is at Bucs practice today. Here he is chatting with Mike Evans. "He's going on 21 years in the NBA," said coach Dirk Koetter. "I mean, wow. What a lesson for our guys. A guy that takes care of himself and still looks like he's 25.

Here are the top 5 teams that have dead cap space (the team is paying but not on the roster): 1. Atlanta $27.8M 2. Brooklyn $24.4M 3. Milwaukee $7.4M 4. Indiana $6.2M and 5. Detroit $5.3M. The Hawks in 2017-18 also led the NBA with $32.3M in dead money.
