Nets lose out on Otto Porter, but reportedly trade for Raptors' DeMarre Carroll

The Raptors have traded De Marre Carroll left to the Brooklyn Nets in a deal that may lead to further moves to finalize the roster which now has holes at small forward and an apparent surplus of big men

Formerly dubbed the "Junkyard Dog", DeMarre Carroll was once a fan favorite as a member of the Utah Jazz.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Toronto Raptors and the Brooklyn Nets have agreed to a trade sending DeMarre Carroll to Toronto for Justin Hamilton.

Joseph is still only 25-years-old and already has six years of National Basketball Association experience.

Jamal Crawford bought out by Hawks
Crawford and the Atlanta Hawks reached a buyout agreement yesterday, allowing Crawford to become an unrestricted free agent. The move frees much-needed salary cap space for Miami, which owed (Duke alumnus) just over $6 million for next season.

Coming off a career-best season with the Atlanta Hawks, Carroll and the Raptors agreed to a four-year, $60 million United States contract in the 2015 off-season. Last season Carroll averaged 8.9 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.1 steals. And, if the Nets decide they want to ease LeVert into the role, similarly to what they did a year ago, he could perhaps split the starting job with Carroll throughout the season. 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.

Joseph will make $7.6 million next year and has a player option for $7.9 million in 2017-18. 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. Joseph will compete with Darren Collison for the position. Small forward DeMarre Carroll and his huge cap figure will be shipped from the Raptors to the Nets in an interesting move. The Indiana Pacers need that wing depth with the departures of Paul George and C.J. Miles. Raptors point guard Cory Joseph will head back to IN in the deal. Likely replacement Delon Wright isn't that kind of 3-point threat, though he's an even better defender with the size to match up with shooting guards. Also, Indiana could certainly trade him at the deadline to a contender that is seeking a backup point guard. Lowry's deal is worth a reported US$100 million while Ibaka signed a $65 million contract. Those teams are completing trades with teams which has cap space. They are now above that threshold by $4,435,344.
