Bobcats trade Matt Carroll to Hornets for Hakim Warrick

Nov 13, 2012, 6:06 PM EDT


UPDATE 6:06 pm: And it’s official, with the Bobcats confirmed that the trade has gone through.

These two veteran bench players may bet a little more run and a chance to show what they can do in their new surroundings in a way they did not so far this season. Both teams get a little roster balance out of this.

4:29 pm: It would be a trade of veteran guys who are not getting off the bench where they are now. And likely how much they play doesn’t change a whole lot if this were to go down.

But the Bobcats and Hornets are talking trade, reports Marc Stein of ESPN.

We’ll see if this happens. Not a big deal either way.

Carroll, the 6’6” swingman, has played in one game and a total of six minutes for the Bobcats. While he had some solid years with the Bobcats in the middle of the last decade, I think we should reiterate this — he can’t get off the Bobcats bench.

Warrick is a 6’9” forward who has played just one game for the Hornets. He was a throw in to balance salaries in the Robin Lopez trade last summer, but the Hornets didn’t really need him. Again, a nice career but not getting used on a team that is not all that good.

It could give both teams some depth at spots they are a little thinner. Carroll is in the last year of his deal, Warrick has one season after this one but the deal has a club option. They can cut him if they want. So, I guess this is a fine trade. Doesn’t really make a big difference.

    I find it shocking that Matt Carroll is still in the NBA.

      Well, he can still shoot. I’m surprised he can’t get off the bench…it’s the Bobcats!

        @paleihe no.
        the problem is he can shoot for & make shots for every team he’s played for except the bobcats.
        im here, i should know.

        Well, then I stand corrected.

    If this trade goes through, then the NBA title picture just got a lot more fuzzy. BLOCKBUSTER DEAL

    What a one-sided trade…and MJ is the one who didn’t get burned! Things are looking up in Charlotte, look out!

    The Bobcats are at least competing this year. They are working on their third win already this year. Go Cats!
