Bobcats trade G Carroll to Hornets for F Warrick...Stern says NBA boomingUNDATED (AP) - The Charlotte Bobcats have made a trade, acquiring forward Hakim Warrick from the New Orleans Hornets for guard Matt Carroll.
In 499 games over eight NBA seasons with five teams, the 6-foot-9 Warrick has averaged 9.5 points, 4.1 rebounds and a .494 field goal percentage.
In other NBA doings:
- Minnesota swingman Chase Budinger will miss the next three to four months while recovering from surgery to repair a torn lateral meniscus in his left knee. Budinger is averaging 11.8 points and had helped fill in for Brandon Roy, who has missed two straight games with knee soreness.
--NBA Commissioner David Stern estimates revenue will be a record $5 billion in the current season, an increase of about 20 percent from the league's last full season in 2010-11. Stern said NBA expansion to Europe is probably at least a decade away and that it likely would make sense to add several clubs there at once.
