Raptors intend to waive Hamilton

Raptors intend to waive Hamilton

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, was first with reports of the Raptors - Nets trade. Carroll will join D'Angelo Russell and Timofey Mozgov as the new guys on the team who will look to lead the Nets back to respectability.

The domino effect of the Brooklyn Nets trading for the Toronto Raptors' DeMarre Carroll is the inability to offer a huge contract to any of the remaining free agents. Mandatory Credit: Raj Mehta-USA TODAY SportsWhat's in it for Brooklyn?

After playing collegiately at Vanderbilt and Missouri, Carroll entered the National Basketball Association as the 27 player picked in the 2009 draft. Although he certainly wouldn't completely fill the void left by Gordon Hayward's departure, Carroll would still be a formidable option, especially considering where the Jazz reside currently and how bleak their small forward position is looking right now.

Wojnarowski reported the move was a salary dump for Toronto, who would have owed Carroll $30 million over the next two seasons. Don't get me wrong: Toronto will miss Joseph's ability to credibly stretch the floor alongside Lowry as a league-average 3-point shooter.

Brooklyn coach Kenny Atkinson was an assistant with the Atlanta Hawks when Carroll enjoyed his top two seasons, including a career-high 12.6 scoring average during the 2014-15 season.

On a young and rebuilding team like the Nets, Carroll can focus on his all-around game while serving as a veteran mentor for the youngsters on the roster.

Instead of focusing on free agency, the Brooklyn Nets took to the trade market. However, Brooklyn still has a substantial amount of space to work with, and there are still ways to clear more space by unloading other players. Though he's somewhat injury prone, Carroll was once a pivotal piece on a 60-win team and an Eastern Conference All-Star. In return, Toronto only asked for reserve center Justin Hamilton, a very flawed player limited to a few hot shooting streaks from long range.

The six-foot-eight, 212-pound Carroll averaged 8.9 points per game last season while playing a little over 26 minutes per game. This was a good trade for both teams.

According to the Washington Post, the Brooklyn Nets learned on Saturday night that the Wizards would match the maximum offer sheet they gave to Otto Porter.
