re: Marc Stein: Hakim Warrick to Bobcats for Matt Carroll(Posted by SPE UVA on 11/14/12 at 4:12 am to Spudly)
hollinger's scouting report:
+ Slow-footed guard with accurate outside shot. Slow, low release on J. + Likes to shot-fake and drive. Not athletic but good at drawing fouls on drives. + Good team defender but overmatched one-on-one. Lacks mobility and hops.
Analysis It's over.
Carroll somehow got into 52 games, and responded with the seventh-worst PER in basketball -- particularly bad news given that he's an offensive specialist who is overmatched on defense. He was last among shooting guards in three different categories (FG%, TS% and PER), second-to-last in points per minute, and his once-deadly 3-point game completely abandoned him (he was 8-for-43 on the season).
At 32, with three of the past four years in single-digits in PER and offering no defensive value, Carroll really has no business being in the league anymore. He has one guaranteed year left with the Bobcats, and then it's likely curtains.
