Millsap, Carroll leave Jazz for Atlanta

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 Sports) - Paul Millsap and DeMarre Carroll have both agreed to terms with the Atlanta Hawks.
SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 Sports) - The overhaul of the Utah Jazz continues.

Hours after completing a trade with Golden State, Jazz forwards Paul Millsap and DeMarre Carroll both agreed to terms with the Atlanta Hawks.

Millsap will sign a 2-year, $19-million deal, while Carroll's deal is for two years and five million dollars.

Both players will sign their contracts on July 10th.

Millsap, an overachieving second round draft pick in 2006, played his entire seven year career with the Jazz. He has career averages of 12.7 points and 7.0 rebounds per game, and became a fan favorite for his toughness and willingness to play through injury.

Millsap was the longest tenured Jazz player on team, but when the Jazz took on almost 24 million dollars in salary in the trade with the Warriors, it became obvious that the team would not be able to re-sign him.

Caroll played with the Jazz for a season and a half, coming over from the Memphis Grizzlies. Like Millsap, Carroll was a fan favorite for his relentless style of play, earning him the nickname, "Junkyard Dog."

Carroll tweeted to his fans, "I like to Thank all my Fans in Utah. I like to thank Dennis, Kevin & Ty for giving me the Oppurtunity. Atlanta here comes the #JunkYardDog!
