TNT's Harvey Carey still mulling retirement

TNT veteran forward Harvey Carey clarified that he has not made up his mind yet if he will retire at the end of the season.

"Maybe. I'm not closing the door, but potentially it could be, yes," Carey told ESPN5.com. "I haven't made an announcement that it will be my last, but if it is then hopefully we win a championship," he added.

Even though the career-defining decision won't be made yet anytime soon, Carey wants to end his career on a high note, especially after his team made some moves in the offseason.

It's been seven years since the KaTropa won the All-Filipino crown, but the addition of Poy Erram could put the team over the hump, especially with the absence of San Miguel star and six-time MVP June Mar Fajardo.

"I mean, it's common knowledge that we've been lacking a legit center over the years. [Erram] will help us a lot with shot blocking and rebounding. He's a very skilled, offensive player. So all around he will help us across the board," pointed out Carey.

Carey, who is entering his 17th season in Asia's oldest pro basketball league, was drafted 4th overall by the same team in 2003.

A seven-time champion, a one-time Mythical Second Team and All-Star, Carey posted career averages of 6.5 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 1.0 assists per game, according to league statistician Fidel Mangonon, III.
