Brooklyn Nets, Toronto Raptors Agree to Trade Involving DeMarre Carroll

DeMarre Carroll has reportedly been traded to the Brooklyn Nets

RAPTORS: Three people with knowledge of the dealings told The Associated Press that the Toronto Raptors have made two trades, sending DeMarre Carroll to Brooklyn for salary cap relief and landing C.J. Miles in a sign-and-trade with in for Cory Joseph. Lowry's deal is worth a reported US$100 million while Ibaka signed a $65 million contract.

The Raptors are signing Miles to a three-year/$25 million deal with a player option for the third year.

In DeMarre Carroll they just might find one.

U.S. guard Payton Pritchard (Oregon/West Linn, Ore.) was selected to the five-member All-Tournament team, joining Canada's R.J. The North American outfit then extended their advantage in the second stanza to ensure they reached half-time 51-36 in front.

The 7-foot center Hamilton played one season for the Nets, averaging 18.4 minutes, 6.9 points, 4.1 rebounds, 0.9 assists and 0.7 blocks per game while starting seven games.

For the Pacers, the consistent and defensively-solid Joseph fits with their plan to rebuild after trading Paul George to Oklahoma City, ESPN notes. The Raptors had Carroll's remaining deal of $30 million on the books. Small forward DeMarre Carroll and his huge cap figure will be shipped from the Raptors to the Nets in an interesting move.

Neither team has officially announced the trade. The talent gap between the players is a strong indicator that the move appears to be financially motivated. Both draft picks are for 2018. Still, Ujiri's creative in recent days was born out of necessity and, even with a strong bargain on the Miles contract, there isn't much more the Raptors can do in the short term to improve their on-court product. 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.

Such actions, however, may do little to sway China or deter it from boosting its military presence in the region. The Philippines, Malaysia, Vietnam and Taiwan all claim to occupy portions of the island chain.

This was a great deal as the Nets have the cap space to swallow his deal and still hope that he can provide outside scoring for a team that desperately needs it.

After four straight seasons on playoff teams, Carroll goes to the worst team in the National Basketball Association. He played a career-best 64 games previous year. By 2014-15, Carroll was putting up 12.6 points per game with incredible efficiency - 48.7 percent from the field and a blistering 39.5 percent from deep - while also chipping in 5.3 rebounds and almost two assists per game. 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.
