The third year of the contract is partially guaranteed, reports Wojnarowski.
Carter is coming off a solid season where he found consistency at the wing while averaging 17.6 points per 36 minutes. He had a 15.9 Basketball-Reference.com player efficiency rating, which put him above the league average. For a player who’s relatively inexpensive, still somewhat dynamic and has the smarts to provide some versatility on the floor, that’s a good amount.
Carter's teams haven't advanced past the first round of the playoffs since 2010 with Orlando. He joins a Memphis team coming off its first back-to-back 50-win campaigns in franchise history.
