Matt Carroll was traded for Hakim Warrick. No cap implications and neither was playing. Carry on with your day.
I think a lot of people are stuck on real life NBA being similar to NBA 2K12.
IMO, Carroll won't get any minutes, but the fact that Charlotte thought enough of him to keep him around while they were moving anything and everything they could speaks for the type of teammate he is.

Can't have too many veteran locker room presence... Not sure what people are crying about. Warrick wasn't going to get playing time on this team even with the early injuries, he was still sitting on the bench.
Maybe there is another deal in the works that will include Xavier Henry, and this move brings us in another shooter, a guy who will actually make jumpers with his minimal minutes.
With Anthony Davis down low there is an increasing need for guys who be able to make the shot when he's forced to kick it out.
Things that I have learned since joining Pelicans Report
1. Every poster on this site knows more than Monty & Dell
2. Having our favorite players do well statistically is more important than wins
3. Tanking is our #1 goal every season
4. Every poster on this site is an insider based on all the matter of fact statements being made
Everyone needs to stop bashing Warrick. He is a decent player, but he was stuck behind 4 players who are better. Having said that, I think that this is a good trade for everyone involved
We needed outside shooting, we got it, nuff said
Is it scrub for scrub though? Nicer contract on a high character marksman. That will be nice to move later on if we can. People always needs a shooter.
Tom Smykowski: Well-well look. I already told you: I deal with the god damn customers so the engineers don't have to. I have people skills; I am good at dealing with people. Can't you understand that? What the hell is wrong with you people?

Does this open the door to for that Ryno to the Lakers trade? Hmmmm. But for real I like Warrick but he would have been gone by the deadline regardless
I think Warrick was insurance in case Davis hit the rookie wall harder than anticipated. But if he has hit it or will hit it...I think the wall will break.
There's just no minutes here for him.
Tune in on Fridays at 12 noon for Sport-a-Facts with Ro Brown and Wednesdays at 1pm for Sports Revolution to hear me speak my mind on all things Saints and Pelicans related and more.
Only on WBOK 1230 AM.
Feel free to PM me for more details.
Warrick was there because that's what was required to get Lopez. This is a trash for trash trade. The little bit of salary may make a difference. Also, guard trash instead of forward trash may imply that we'll be shipping out another guard (or more) and getting a forward in a later deal, giving us no (or small) flux in the roster mix.
I haven't thought of anything else that makes sense yet.
Also, he's a Bird player (I think due to his initial stint in Charlotte), so he can veto trades this season since it's his last year.

Reasoning I thought of when I heard the news: Carroll had this year, and only this year, left on his deal. Warrick, on the other hand, had a team option next year. That means there was likely a buyout fee of some sort in order next year (however minimal), correct? Save a little now, save a little later, and add some guard depth.
Not bad I guess

And feed 'em from the table that held Corleone's food,
If you die, tell them that you played my game
I hope your bullet holes become mouths that say my name.
