Come and meet Utah Jazz forward DeMarre Carroll on June 18 at 4 p.m. at Emery High. DeMarre just finished his fourth year in the NBA and his second with the Utah Jazz. He played in 66 games for the Jazz last season and started 12 games.
He averaged 6 points and 3 rebounds per game. He graduated from Missouri in 2008 with a bachelor's degree in human and organizational development.

He became the first player in the history of the school to have his jersey No. 32 retired during a ceremony in August of 2009.
