MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Vince Carter, heading into his 17th NBA season, doesn't consider age a big issue anymore. The 38-year-old veteran sees a lot of older teams around the league and notes a "very old team" has just won the championship in San Antonio.

So the opportunity to compete for a title drew him to Memphis, even though the Grizzlies have a bunch of 30-somethings in Zach Randolph, Tony Allen and Tayshaun Prince.

Carter said Monday he sees plenty of weapons in Memphis and hopes he can help get the Grizzlies over the hump in the playoffs.

The Grizzlies introduced Carter on Monday after signing him to a reported three-year, $12 million contract. The Grizzlies have reached the playoffs the past four seasons, losing in the Western Conference finals in 2013.
