DeMarre LaEdrick Carroll (born July 27, 1986 in Birmingham, Alabama) is an American professional basketball player who was drafted 27th overall by the Memphis Grizzlies of the National Basketball Association in the 2009 NBA Draft. Carroll formerly played for the University of Missouri and Vanderbilt University. He is the nephew of former Missouri men's basketball coach Mike Anderson.
A former standout at John Carroll Catholic High School in Birmingham, where he teamed with Alabama point guard Ronald Steele to lead the Cavaliers to back-to-back Alabama Class 6A state titles. He earned first team All-State, All-Area, All-Region, All-District and All-Metro recognition as a junior and senior and helped JCCHS to a combined 67-3 mark his final two seasons, culminating in those consecutive state crowns. He averaged 17.8 points and 9.1 rebounds as a junior for John Carroll's undefeated 36-0 state championship squad, before recording norms of 19.7 points and 10.7 rebounds as a senior en route to the team's 31-3 championship season. He capped his prep career by scoring a game-high 27 points in the annual Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Game and was named MVP of the 2004 Alabama Class 6A State Tournament.
After a successful sophomore year at Vanderbilt, he surprised the team when he decided to transfer to Missouri in 2006 to play for his uncle Mike Anderson. Carroll led Missouri to the Elite Eight (national quarterfinals) of the 2009 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament during his senior year. He is capable from scoring inside, from the perimeter, and grabbing rebounds, proving his versatility.[who?]
When Carroll came to Missouri, he complained of itchy legs, and was convinced that he was suffering from an allergy. After he was examined by several specialists, they came up with a considerably more serious diagnosis—liver disease. It was ultimately determined that Carroll would possibly need a liver transplant, but not for at least 20 years after his diagnosis and most likely after the end of any potential professional basketball career. His illness was revealed several weeks before the 2009 NBA Draft. An 1:30 a.m. on July 5, 2007, Carroll was shot in the ankle during a domestic dispute at a nightclub in Columbia, Missouri.
Carroll was apparently able to satisfy teams' concerns about his health issues, as he was drafted in the first round, 27th overall, by the Memphis Grizzlies. He has played primarily off the bench during his tenure with the Memphis Grizzlies. On December 14, 2010, he was assigned to the Dakota Wizards of the NBA D-League. He was recalled on January 5, 2011. On February 24, 2011 he was traded with Hasheem Thabeet to the Houston Rockets for Shane Battier. On April 11, 2011, he was waived by the Rockets.
