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.
