There’s a long list of teams already prepared to pursue Carroll this summer, including the Celtics, Lakers and Pistons. He boosted his scoring average from 12.6 points to 16.2 before the injury, and was shooting 51.3 percent from the field and 41.6 percent from the 3-point line. The Hawks want to keep Carroll, but his price has been driven up. With his defense and versatility, one league exec estimated his next deal at more than $15 million per year. Sporting News

The Detroit Pistons point guard made an appearance Tuesday night at the Pistons' draft lottery party for season-ticket holders at the Palace, where he posed for pictures with fans. After he completed his brief appearance, he walked with two reporters and gave an update on how his rehab was going. He has been walking without restrictions for two weeks and said he was ahead of schedule. "My goal is to be back to up and running in August, and actually really getting after it. So that gives me August and September and October to get ready," Jennings said. Detroit Free Press

Unfortunately, not everyone agrees it’s an issue. In fact, team officials who do may be in the minority. “Change the rule? For what?” asked an Eastern Conference GM who is on the NBA’s Competition Committee. “For DeAndre Jordan and Dwight Howard? Learn to shoot free throws.” A league source says that almost 80% of this season’s hacking was done to five players: Jordan, Andre Drummond of Detroit and Howard, Josh Smith and Joey Dorsey of Houston.

Stanley Johnson, Sam Dekker, Frank Kaminsky and Texas freshman Myles Turner – who, like Kaminsky, could play both power forward and backup center, though neither would be best served early in their careers guarding accomplished post scorers – all said they had interviewed with the Pistons at the combine. Teams aren't guaranteed interviews with any particular player, so tread carefully reading too much into the lists of players the Pistons have or have not met with at the combine. Bower, though, said he was relatively pleased with the number of requested players the NBA granted the Pistons. "We're pleased," he said. "You don't always get everybody that you want, but we were able to see a large portion of the players we asked for. Like every team, we missed on getting a few guys that are here but we'll be able to get them in Detroit, eventually, on their visit to the site. But we're very pleased with the opportunities that this whole combine creates for us." NBA.com
