DeMarre Carroll

Jazz General Manager Kevin O’Connor confirmed to the Salt Lake Tribune on Saturday morning that the organization indeed has a team option on small forward DeMarre Carroll, an option the Jazz are still deciding on.

There had been some confusion on this issue. But Carroll emerged from his exit interview with the team confident that he will remain with the organization for next season.

“He should be confident,” O’Connor said. “He did a lot of good things for us this year. He hustled, he played defense and he provided a spark.”

The Jazz have until June 30th to decide their team option on back-up point guard Jamaal Tinsley.
