Carroll, who will turn 27 later this month, is a former first-round pick of the Memphis Grizzlies. He struggled to see regular playing time during the first four years of his career, splitting time with the Grizzlies, Rockets and Nuggets. He emerged as a quality role player for the Jazz in 2012-13, averaging a career-high six points per game while appearing in 66 games. He made 12 starts, which was also a career best.
Carroll is not a great shooter and is fairly limited on the offensive end. His true value lies on the defensive end with his hustle and toughness. He emerged as one of the fan-favorites in Utah this past season.
The Hawks have reportedly reached agreements with Kyle Korver and Paul Millsap this week, meaning Carroll will likely return to his customary role as a bench player in Atlanta. With the Eastern Conference looking top-heavy for next season, Carroll could play a big role for a team that will contend for one of the top playoff seeds next spring.
