Report: Former Mizzou star DeMarre Carroll heading to new NBA team
Former Mizzou star DeMarre Carroll has moved around a lot in his NBA career.
Since entering the pro ranks, he has played for the Memphis Grizzlies, Houston Rockets, Denver Nuggets, Utah Jazz, Atlanta Hawks, Toronto Raptors, Brooklyn Nets and San Antonio Spurs.
Now, it appears he’ll be on the move again. Per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Spurs have bought out his contract and he’s expected to sign with the Rockets once again:

Carroll has played sparingly for the Spurs, playing in only 15 games. He is averaging 2.2 points and 2.1 rebounds in those contests.
The Rockets are currently in fifth place in the Western Conference, while the Spurs are in 10th place, so this is a step up for Carroll.
