Matt Carroll and the Hornets are working on a buyout of his contract.

Carroll was recently acquired in a deal with Charlotte in exchange for Hakim Warrick. Marc Stein also brings up the Lakers as a possible destination for Carroll.

Matt Carroll hasn't reported to the Hornets after Tuesday's trade, and the team said they'll provide an update on his status on Friday.

Hornets GM Dell Demps has had "discussions" with Carroll's agent, which may suggest a buyout but could simply be a discussion of Carroll's role with the team.

Matt Carroll was traded from the Bobcats to the Hornets on Tuesday.

Carroll is a proficient outside shooter, but he appeared in just one game for Charlotte this season and isn't likely to do much in New Orleans, either.

Matt Carroll said he will pick up his $3.5 player option for the 2012-13 season.

The Bobcats strangely signed Carroll to a six-year, $27 million contract in July of 2007. As a fringe NBA player, exercising his option for next season is a no-brainer. Carroll has averaged just 11.6 minutes per game for the 7-56 Bobcats this season.

Matt Carroll scored 11 points on 4-of-7 shooting (including a three) with three rebounds and four assists in 28 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Carroll and Derrick Brown (11 points, five boards, two assists, one block, one three, 30 minutes) are both on the 14-16 team radar right now. Carroll is coming off a 17-point outing on Wednesday. Bismack Biyombo had two points, two boards, and a block in 11 minutes off the bench, as well.

Matt Carroll made his first start of the season in place of Gerald Henderson (tailbone) and had a season-high 17 points on 7-of-10 shooting in 35 minutes on Wednesday.

He didn't hit a 3-pointer tonight, but played very well. Henderson tried to play, but pulled himself at the last second. They're off until Friday, and our guess is Henderson will play in that one, sending Carroll back to the bench and irrelevance.

Matt Carroll exploded for 26 points off the bench in Sunday's loss to the Wizards.

Carroll is one of the better 3-point shooters in the league, but this is a fluke. He scored 17 of his 26 in the fourth quarter and Stephen Jackson (hamstring) was sidelined. Carroll is a poor bet for more than 15-18 minutes next game.

Matt Carroll returned from a sprained ankle, but failed to score in seven minutes.

No fantasy value to see here, folks.

Matt Carroll (ankle) returned to Bobcats practice Thursday.

Carroll missed Wednesday's loss to the Bulls. With Stephen Jackson (hamstring) back Friday, Carroll will struggle to crack the rotation anyway.

Matt Carroll (ankle) is a game-time decision for Wednesday against the Bulls.

Aside from one 19-point outburst in a 40-point loss on March 2, Carroll has hit double-figures in scoring just once all year.

Matt Carroll (ankle) missed Monday's practice.

Even with all the Bobcats' injuries, Carroll was playing just 12 minutes a night of late.
Tue, Mar 8, 2011 01:17:00 PM

Matt Carroll left Monday's game with a sprained left ankle during the second quarter and did not return, finishing with just two rebounds to his credit over seven minutes.

Normally this would have absolutely no impact on fantasy leagues, but with the Bobcats being so banged up it will funnel more opportunity toward Shaun Livingston and D.J White, albeit in minimal doses.

Matt Carroll hit 6-of-11 shots and two 3-pointers to score 19 points for the Bobcats on Wednesday.

How bad were they in a blowout loss to the Nuggets? Bad enough that they were led in scoring by Matt Carrol. Ignore him, unless he happens to replace a struggling Gerald Henderson in the starting lineup. And if he does, beware that Carroll doesn't really do much of anything other than hit threes.
Thu, Mar 3, 2011 02:07:00 AM

Matt Carroll scored a season-high 12 points on 5-of-9 shooting (including two threes) with two rebounds and one assist in 14 minutes off the bench.

This is as good of a line as he has had all year, which tells you all you need to know about his fantasy value.
