Bobcats get Diop for Carroll, Hollins.
Minor trade. Maybe they can start Okafor at PF now?:confused2:


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.

Good trade for both teams, reminds me a bit of the Korver deal last year for Utah that ended up having a much bigger impact than it seemed, Carroll could do well in Dallas playing beside Kidd and getting out of that ugly Charlotte offense and rotation.

Charlotte needed a backup big (Nazr is useless)... plus Diop fits Brown
