Raptors' Carroll traded to Nets

Cory Joseph Toronto Raptors

The Toronto Raptors have reached agreement with the Indiana Pacers on a sign-and-trade to acquire free-agent guard C.J. The Nets handed Porter, a restricted free agent a four-year deal, worth $106.5 million. First, Toronto moved on from veteran forward DeMarre Carroll via a trade with the Brooklyn Nets.

The Toronto Raptors have made a pair of deals as they try to avoid significant luxury tax penalties.

For the Pacers, the consistent and defensively-solid Joseph fits with their plan to rebuild after trading Paul George to Oklahoma City, ESPN notes. As for the downward shooting trends during his two-year tenure in Toronto that got him demoted during this past postseason run, Carroll thrived in the prior two seasons in Atlanta's ball-movement system, as opposed to being the fourth option in the Raptors', um, less democratic offense featuring the one-on-one skills of DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry.

In his career, Justin Hamilton has not seen consistent enough playing time to be reasonably expected to contribute immediately to the Toronto Raptors, which is why he will be waived and stretched.

Carroll will have an opportunity to continue as a starting small forward with the Nets.

The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the trades have not been officially announced. It won't be easy with a team who won 20 games and finished as the worst in the league then had to watch as the Boston Celtics took their No. 1 pick.

Not only are the Nets getting draft picks, but Carroll is no scrub. Last season, the starting gig at the 3 went to rookie Caris LeVert for the final 25 games of the season.

Mar 17, 2017; Auburn Hills, MI, USA; Toronto Raptors forward DeMarre Carroll (5) takes a shot over Detroit Pistons guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (5) during the first quarter at The Palace of Auburn Hills. With almost $17 million in cap room left to sign free agents, expect more moves in and out of Brooklyn.

Even with the $11.8 million salary cap hit on this deal, Marks still has about $18 million in room, assuming guarantees totaling $4.8 million are picked up for Quincy Acy, Spencer Dinwiddie, and Archie Goodwin, for further improvements.

It is unclear if Hamilton will have any role with Toronto for the coming season with a backlog of players at centre including Jonas Valanciunas, Lucas Nogueira and Jakob Poeltl. Miles has been doing that his whole career, and especially with the Pacers last season.
