RAPTORS: Three people with knowledge of the dealings told The Associated Press that the Toronto Raptors have made twotrades, sending DeMarre Carroll to Brooklyn for salary cap relief and landing C.J. Miles in a sign-and-trade with in for Cory Joseph.
The Raptors re-signed both Lowry and Ibaka to maintain their core. All it cost the team was the $30-plus million owed to Carroll over the next two seasons - money the Nets themselves can afford to take on. Mandatory Credit: Raj Mehta-USA TODAY SportsWhat's in it for Brooklyn? Barely used Hamilton for a 1st, 2nd round picks and Carroll.
Before this deal, the Nets didn't have a first-round pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, having dealt it to the Boston Celtics a few years ago. Injuries limited him to 26 games in his first season with the Raptors when he averaged 11 points.
Losing Joseph will give Toronto's backup point guard duties to Delon Wright, who emerged last season as a capable NBAer who is just entering his third season in the league. It'll be up to Kenny Atkinson - who should be very familiar with Carroll from his days with the Atlanta Hawks - to help the fading wing fly back to the player who served as an important piece on the playoff runs of the 2014-15 Hawks and 2015-16 Raptors. He'll get a fresh start in Brooklyn, and a chance to be a veteran voice on a young team.
Grade this trade for the Nets?
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.
Justin Hamilton wasn't any kind of huge contributor for the Nets.
While with the Raptors for two seasons, Carroll managed to average 9 points and 4 rebounds on 40 percent shooting and never seemed to really fit in with Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan in Toronto.
Starting with the draft picks the Brooklyn Nets will receive from the Toronto Raptors, they clearing won the trade.
Following the Washington Wizards' decision to match Brooklyn's max offer sheet to Otto Porter Jr., the Nets still have enough financial capital to add another bad contract for future draft pick compensation. The moves sacrifice some defensive versatility - the lanky Miles isn't as effective defending bigger small forwards as Carroll - in exchange for more efficient scoring.
