People are acting like Jeff Green is some kind of upgrade over DeMarre Carroll, when in fact he is a downgrade as far as statistics and contract as well.
Carroll: 47% FG%, 37% 3PFG%, 5.6 REB, 1.9 AST
Green: 42% FG%, 37% 3PFG%, 5 REB, 1.6 AST
Carroll: 2,400,000 for 2013-14, increases to 2,600,000 in 2014-15.
Green: $8,695,000 for 2013-2014, increases to 9,445,000 in 2014-15 season.
The Hawks would also have to send some other players and maybe a pick, so why take a downgrade in performance and contract?
