Atlanta Hawks star DeMarre Carroll has revealed that he will ‘most definitely’ consider the New York Knicks in free agency this summer.

Carroll is currently with his fifth team in six years in the NBA, but it hasn’t been a bad match as he has played a vital role in the Hawks’ rise to the top of the Eastern Conference.
As Atlanta prepare for life in the playoffs as the No.1 seed in the East, it remains to be seen if they can extend their regular season form into the post-season, but it appears as though one of their stars could be considering an exit this summer already.
The 28-year-old is an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season and will be looking to get a long-term deal that pays well which in turn has led him to keeping all his options open for now including a switch to the Big Apple.
“Most definitely,” Carroll said when asked if the Knicks would be a high consideration, as reported by the New York Post.
“When guys talk about playing in certain places — they talk about Madison Square Garden and Staples Center. Those two places. New York has a lot to offer but at the end of the season, I’ll let my agent do that. We’ll keep our options and hopefully it will work out for the best.”
At this stage, Carroll is unable to open up talks with any team and so he will have to wait until the summer to work out his options as his more immediate focus should be on the playoffs.
It is no secret that New York and Los Angeles are two markets in particular that have many players dreaming of joining one day, and so it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that he would talk up his chances of turning out at MSG next year.
