Undrafted as a 23-year-old out of Hawaii, Anthony Carter seemed to be an unlikely candidate for a lengthy NBA career.
He spent his first year as a professional in Yakima, Wash., before joining the Miami Heat in 1999. Subsisting primarily on one-year contracts, Carter also made stops in San Antonio, Minnesota, Denver, New York and Toronto over the course of 13 NBA seasons.
At some point, Carter plans to join an NBA coaching staff or work in a front office. For now, he’s hoping to make the most of his opportunity as a non-roster invitee with the Nuggets.
