BOOM: Carroll for Warrick

The Bobcats’ 6th guard, Matt Carroll, is being traded for the New Orleans Hornets’ 6th big man, Hakim Warrick. So, with that context in place, appropriate analysis to follow.

The end.

Just kidding – but we are going to Twitter to get the rundown:


And a couple of quick links:

Salary-wise, it’s the verbal equivalent of shrugging your shoulders. Carroll’s in his last year of his contract, worth $3.5 million. Warrick’s contract is worth $4 million this year and the team has the option to pick up a second year after this season if they so choose at the same price (ShamSports).

In what may end up being the most irrelevant trade in the NBA this season, the New Orleans Hornets have sent 30 year old PF Hakim Warrick to the Charlotte Bobcats and will receive 32 year old SG Matt Carroll.

Before anyone attempts to over-analyze this trade, I implore you to reconsider, because the deal as a whole is largely meaningless. Given the Hornets’ incredibly deep front court, Hakim Warrick was the team’s 6th big man, behind even Lance Thomas. As a result, he was shipped off to Charlotte, seemingly in exchange for some back court help in Matt Carroll, since the Hornets are much thinner at his position.
