DeMarre Carroll    F  Hawks

 

 

DeMarre Carroll said he was excited to get traded from the Raptors. "It was like a rush of joy just ran through my body," Carroll said when he found out about the deal. Coach Kenny Atkinson was with Carroll in their Atlanta days and Carroll said Atkinson really helped him on cutting and playing on the move. "Me being in a system where the coach gets me and now I can do what I do, play defense and shoot the three ball, I feel like this is the best environment for me," Caroll added. The Nets are likely to go young and Carroll's knee injuries have held him back, so he's not the best fantasy target.

Jeremy Lin said that the Nets "desperately" needed someone like DeMarre Carroll. "He can definitely shoot the [3-point shot] and he can definitely play defense, which we really, really need help with," Lin said. "And he can do more than that. But just veteran leadership, toughness, grit. I’m hoping he comes in and is a vocal leader. Those are some things that we need." Carroll was just a salary dump and Brooklyn received two drafts picks in return, but there's a chance he could get his career back on track with the Nets. Brooklyn head coach Kenny Atkinson was an assistant for Atlanta during Carroll's best years in the NBA, so maybe he can help get him going.

The Raptors traded DeMarre Carroll, a future first-round and second-round pick to Brooklyn for Justin Hamilton, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com. The Raptors have been looking to get Carroll of their books and they were able to do so with Nets GM Sean Marks. With P.J. Tucker in Houston and Terrence Ross in Orlando from a deadline deal, it's officially Norman Powell time in Canada. As for Carroll, the Nets will probably keep his minutes down to play some of their younger guys.

The Raptors could be looking to trade DeMarre Carroll in a salary dump move, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com. Woj says that the Raptors are looking to get Carroll's bad contract off the books and may use a protected first-round pick to help find a team to take it. The emergence of Norman Powell is a clear factor in this thinking, and it doesn't help that Carroll's knee basically hasn't been 100 percent since he signed his deal two years ago.

DeMarre Carroll logged just six minutes off the bench in Toronto's Game 4 loss to Cleveland on Sunday, finishing with just two points, two rebounds and one assist. Carroll barely produced late-round value in his second season with the Raptors, and he wasn’t even worth owning after the break when his averages dipped to 7.2 points, 3.7 boards, 1.0 steal and 1.2 triples a night while connecting on just 36.9 percent of his shot attempts. He’s basically just a spot up shooter with the Raptors, so it has to hurt Toronto management that he’s owed roughly another $30.2 million over the next two seasons.

DeMarre Carroll headed to the bench on Wednesday, missing all six of his field goal attempts to finish scoreless with two steals, one rebound, one assist and one block in 19 minutes. Carroll had just three points and four rebounds in 15 minutes during Game 1 on Monday, and the move to the second unit obviously didn't get him going. Nobody on the Raptors has been capable of slowing down LeBron James, which is theoretically one of Carroll's primary jobs -- if he's also bricking his shots, there's no reason to think his role will increase in Game 3.
