DeMarre Carroll, Future Picks Traded To Brooklyn Nets In Salary Dump

The Toronto Raptors made the decision to "run it back" for the 2017-2018 season, at least in some ways. Another possibility is to keep the open cap room be one of the teams next year with the most cap space.

In exchange for Nets' center Justin Hamilton, the Raptors are sending Carroll, a 2018 lottery-protected first-round draft choice and a 2018 second-round pick to Brooklyn.

As predicted in the write-up of the trade, stretching Hamilton buys the Raptors a little bit of extra flexibility now at a small cost later. From where they stand at the moment, they could potentially have one first-rounder and two second-rounders in next year's Draft - the other of the two second-round picks coming from in, if the Pacers miss the playoffs next season.

Miles will ink a three-year, $25 million contract. The Wizards probably thought they were getting revenge for what they perceived as Marks' extortionist bid for an above-average young player by stringing it out until Wednesday, but it seems Marks will get the last word. Unfortunately, as restricted free agents, an offer to either would force the Nets to go through the same agonizing process as they did with Porter, with minimal odds of coming away with the player in the end.

The Brooklyn Nets were active on the trade market again. Though he wasn't the All-Star he once was in Atlanta, he still averaged 8.9 points per game and 1.1 steals per game. Carroll is a solid defensive player, who will offer an upgrade at small forward. He will not be considered as the first option on offense. Acquiring Carroll temporarily eliminates the possibility of Nets going after shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who had his rights renounced (courtesy of the Detroit Free Press) by the Detroit Pistons. In his eight-season career, he's played for the Memphis Grizzlies, Houston Rockets, Denver Nuggets and Utah Jazz as well as the Hawks and Raptors. And with few teams that the ability to absorb additional salary, it diminishes the Brooklyn Nets odds of completing deals.

Carroll also added that he's a member of the Nets to his Instagram bio.
