Bobcats trade Carroll to Hornets for Warrick

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Charlotte Bobcats say they have acquired forward Hakim Warrick from the New Orleans Hornets for guard Matt Carroll.

In 499 games over eight NBA seasons with five teams, the 6-foot-9 Warrick has averaged 9.5 points, 4.1 rebounds and a .494 field goal percentage.

Bobcats president of basketball operations Rod Higgins says Tuesday, “We are very excited to add a player of Hakim’s ability and overall NBA experience. His athleticism allows him to play multiple positions, which will make for a smooth transition into our current roster and style of play under coach Mike Dunlap.”

Warrick played in only one game this season after being acquired by the Hornets in July.
