Hawks sign DeMarre Carroll; waive DeShawn Stevenson

Chris Barnewall —  August 2, 2013

The Hawks signed forward DeMarre Carroll today according to Carroll’s twitter account.

The deal is assumed to be worth two years, $5 million.

Carroll last season averaged six points and 2.8 rebounds per game last season. With the Hawks, he’ll probably see a lot of time at the 3 but will be able to play the 4 if they wish to go small. Carroll’s primary role will likely to be a wing defender.

With the signing of Carroll, the Hawks have also waived Deshawn Stevenson. This is a good move, because it clears over $2 million off the books and gets rid of an aging Stevenson who did not play well last season.

One response to Hawks sign DeMarre Carroll; waive DeShawn Stevenson

  1. I like the Carroll signing more than any other this offseason. Every top team needs a player like this willing to do the dirty work.
