New Orleans Hornets point guard Matt Carroll, who was acquired in a trade from the Charlotte Bobcats on Tuesday in exchange for forward Hakim Warrick, still has not reported and is expected to miss Friday night’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. When asked about Carroll’s status after Thursday’s practice, Hornets Coach Monty Williams said there have been discussions going on between Carroll’s agent and Hornets General Manager Dell Demps. Though Williams wouldn’t elaborate on the specifics about the discussions, team officials said they intend to give an update on Carroll’s status Friday.
So Carroll had quite the unique and overwhelmingly valuable existence in Dallas for a player who scored 71 points over 262 minutes in 46 games in a season-and-a-half. Yet every time the name Matt Carroll comes up, it makes Mavs owner Mark Cuban bust out with a smile. “I do,” Cuban wrote in an email. “Because Matt is such a good guy. He makes the NBA better on the court and off.”
