Utah Jazz free-agents and fan favorites Paul Millsap and DeMarre Carroll will be joining the Atlanta Hawks next season, according to an ESPN report Friday.

Millsap has reportedly agreed to a two-year, $19 million contract with the Hawks, while Carroll will sign a two-year, $5 million contract.

The Jazz had to renounce their rights to Millsap on Friday due to a trade with the Golden State Warriors.

Carroll tweeted out this thank you to Jazz fans on Friday:

@DeMarreCarroll1I like to Thank all my Fans in Utah. I like to thank Dennis, Kevin & Ty for giving me the opportunity. Atlanta here comes the #JunkYardDog!”
