Carroll, who had logged only 6 minutes of playing time this season, was acquired by the Bobcats from Dallas with Erick Dampier and Eduardo Najera on July 13, 2010, in exchange for Tyson Chandler and Alexis Ajinca. In 459 career NBA games with Portland, San Antonio, Charlotte and Dallas, Carroll has averages of 6.6 points and 1.9 rebounds, while connecting on .384 from the 3-point line and .841 from the free-throw line.
Carroll, who previously played for the Bobcats from 2005-09, ranks second on the team’s all-time 3-point percentage (.384) and free-throw percentage lists (.841). He also ranks third in 3-point field goals made (338) and games played (397). Carroll initially signed with the Bobcats as a free agent on Feb. 23, 2005 after being called up from the NBA D-League.
“Matt Carroll has been a consummate professional both on and off the court during his tenures in Charlotte and we would like to thank him for everything he added to our franchise,” said Higgins. “We wish him well in New Orleans.”
