During his 10-year NBA career, Hart appeared in 341 games, starting 56 of them. He averaged 7.4 points, 2.5 assists, and 1.6 rebounds per game.
Hart was drafted by the Toronto Raptors with the 28th pick in the 1998 NBA draft. He spent three seasons with the team before being traded to the Golden State Warriors for Antonio Davis. Hart played one season with the Warriors before being sent to the New Jersey Nets via trade. He finished his tenure in New Jersey with two seasons. The Nets were eventually eliminated from playoff contention during Hart's first season with the team.
After the Nets, Hart signed with the Memphis Grizzlies as a free agent. He stayed with the club for one season before moving to the Los Angeles Clippers. In his final NBA campaign, Hart averaged 5.0 points, 1.9 assists, and 0.8 rebounds per game.

In 2014, Carter became only the second player in NBA history to score 20,000 points during a season. He did so in just 78 games due to injuries.
Before becoming a full-time player, Carter spent two seasons playing in Greece for Panathinaikos. Over that period, he averaged 29.4 points per game.
