DeMarre Carroll calls the Jazz “repetitive” on offense

DeMarre Carroll has played for 5 different teams in 5 seasons. He earned the name “Junkyard Dog” for his tough attitude,  his suffocating defense, and his overall effort on the court. Carroll signed a 2 year deal worth 5 million dollars with the Hawks this summer,  and he plans on bringing his style to Atlanta. During Hawks Media Day, Carroll had some things to say about what he can bring, and about his former team, via Soaring Down South:

The most surprising thing Caroll talked about was his displeasure with the Utah Jazz on offense. He feels as if he is underrated on the offensive end, and Utah had muzzled him. “I think that’s my biggest thing, I’ve been put in a lot of situations where people didn’t want me to play offense , not really want me, but they didn’t allow me. Especially in Utah, I was stuck in the corner. We ran the same play, and did the same thing. It was kind of repetitive,” Caroll added on Monday.

As for what he can bring to Atlanta?

“I’ve been working on my jumper non-stop, so I got a lot of surprises for everybody,” Caroll said in regards to his role. If he can give the Hawks something on offense, it will be a bonus. Caroll has the potential to have a role that supersedes his previous one. As for playing for 5 teams in 5 years, he feels as if he has found a permanent home.

It’s interesting to see him call out the Jazz. They are in rebuilding mode now,  but The Hawks have a good shot at the playoffs. It’ll be interesting to see what kind of offense he can give Atlanta, but he seems confident.

    Of all the players that left the Jazz this off season, he’s the guy that will be missed the most. He energizes the whole team. He would have been an ideal rotation player to go along with all the young players in Utah this year. Marvin and Richard Jefferson won’t cut it.
