CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The Charlotte Bobcats say they have acquired 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.

Bobcats president of basketball operations Rod Higgins says Tuesday, "We are very excited to add a player of Hakim's ability and overall NBA experience. His athleticism allows him to play multiple positions, which will make for a smooth transition into our current roster and style of play under coach Mike Dunlap.''

Warrick played in only one game this season after being acquired by the Hornets in July.

Carroll hasn't been in Charlotte's rotation.
