MEMPHIS, Tenn. — For the second time in three days, former Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger swoops in and snags a Grizzlies free agent for Sacramento.

Thursday evening Vince Carter agreed to a one-year deal with the Kings that will pay him $8 million.

The news comes two days after Sacramento landed Zach Randolph with a two-year, $24 million contract.

The Grizzlies haven’t publicly discussed what their approach to next season is, but it would’ve been hard to build for the future and pay Randolph and Vince the kind of money Sacramento did.

Carter, who’s 40 years old, averaged eight points and three rebounds in 73 games for the grizzlies, last season this third with Memphis scoring 20 or more four times.
