CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Charlotte Bobcats parted ways with veteran guard Matt Carroll on Tuesday, sending him to New Orleans for forward Hakim Warrick.
Warrick comes over after playing in just one game, but he should give the team more veteran experience down low. His next game will be the 500th of his seven-year career.
We are very excited to add a player of Hakims ability and overall NBA experience, Bobcats president of operations Rod Higgins said in a release. His athleticism allows him to play multiple positions, which will make for a smooth transition into our current roster and style of play under coach Mike Dunlap.
Warrick, who is 6-foot-9 and 219 pounds, has averaged 9.5 points and 4.1 rebounds in his career, which began in 2005. In college, Warrick helped lead Syracuse to the 2003 national championship during his sophomore season. Warricks blocked shot just before the final buzzer sounded allowed the Orange to defeat a Kansas team that was ranked No. 1 almost all season.
