I hear ya talking:) cause Warrick is better than Carrol but the Hornets are doing as they should and keeping their talented nucleus which if over-forward/ laden right now
THIS PROVES 87% of the GUARDs in the league coiuld play with us right now; funny thing is monty would have them all looking good
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.
What the? Sounds like a buy out might be in the works.
Maybe hes just going to retire? I find it hard to believe a guy like Carrol would be pressing for a buyout if hes a great teammate everyone says he is. My only other idea would be Demps having something up his sleeve.
Looks like the Matt Carroll era is coming to an end..Quote:

Word is Hornets & Matt Carroll working on buyout after CHA dealt Carroll for Hakim Warrick. Possible free-agent shooter for Lakers' radar?
Obviously the guy doesn't want to move his family from Charlotte to New Orleans for the remainer of the season.
gonna miss carroll.. damn
Tough loss :(
What are the possibilities that can come out of a buyout? More cap space available to bring back a bigger contract?
I'm gonna miss when we traded for him. He's done so much for us since then.
Now this trade makes even less sense.
I just want to say LOL at most people in this thread that thought we got him for depth and was actually going to play.
What am I supposed to do with my brand new Matt Carrol jersey now?
Burn it along with everything else that says Hornets.
Hmm. Demps is up to something.....
