Bobcats get Diop for Carroll, Hollins.

Minor trade. Maybe they can start Okafor at PF now?

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP)—The Charlotte Bobcats have added depth to their frontcourt by acquiring 7-footer DeSagana Diop from the Dallas Mavericks for guard Matt Carroll and center Ryan Hollins.

Friday’s trade gives Bobcats coach Larry Brown a rugged defensive specialist with limited offensive skills. The 26-year-old Diop is averaging just 1.6 points and 3.5 rebounds a game.

Carroll’s departure alleviates a logjam of wing shooters on Charlotte’s roster and gives the Mavericks an extra 3-point specialist.

The 7-foot Hollins played limited minutes for Charlotte.
