10:19pm: According to John Reid of NOLA.com, the Hornets will neither confirm nor deny that they've engaged in buyout talks with Carroll's camp. However, the team still intends to give an update on his status by tomorrow morning.
7:26pm: ESPN's Marc Stein tweets that Matt Carroll could be working on a buyout with the Hornets after the team acquired him from the Bobcats early this week, adding that the 6'6 guard could be a possible free agent shooter worth considering for the Lakers. Now in his tenth year in the league, Carroll owns career averages of 6.6 PPG, 38.1% from three-point range, and 84.1% from the free throw line.
Earlier today, we heard that Carroll had not yet reported to New Orleans but that Carroll's agent had been in touch with Hornets GM Dell Demps.
