DeMarre Carroll, “Hawks had to choose Paul or me.”

Undoubtedly, the Atlanta Hawks wanted to bring back both DeMarre Carroll and Paul Millsap. Unfortunately, due to financial reasons the Hawks had to make a choice between Carroll or Millsap. After things panned out the Atlanta Hawks chose Paul Millsap over DeMarre Carroll. At first many people questioned the decision because Paul Millsap is 30 years old and seemed to disappear in the playoffs while DeMarre Carroll as extremely effective in the second half of the season including the playoffs. However, when you consider the fact that Paul Millsap has been a solid power forward his entire career and DeMarre Carroll just began to flourish last season, you can begin to see the main reason that swayed the Hawks to offer Millsap a max contract.
With this decision and multiple other moves that have been made this offseason, the Hawks hope to make it back to the Eastern Conference Finals again this upcoming season.
