Brooklyn Nets trade for DeMarre Carroll, draft picks

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

The loss of Cory Joseph is not a small one but, in the same breath, the Raptors do have quality backup options in Delon Wright and Fred VanVleet, allowing Uriji to make this exchange without much issue.

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.

The Raptors re-signed both Lowry and Ibaka to maintain their core.

With the additions of Russell, Mozgov and Carroll, though, this has already been a more productive offseason for the retooling Nets.

On the Nets' side, the only deterrent in this trade is Carroll's effect on their cap situation (sorry J Ham).

With Toronto's lottery protected first-round pick, the Nets will be able to add a young talent to help with the rebuilding process. Small forward DeMarre Carroll and his huge cap figure will be shipped from the Raptors to the Nets in an interesting move.

Created to shoot down short, medium and intermediate ballistic missiles, each THAAD system is comprised of five major components. After North Korea's latest missile test , Trump tweeted out a call for Japan, South Korea and China to stand up to the country.

Justin Hamilton's career as a member of the Toronto Raptors didn't even last 24 hypothetical hours.

After an injury-ridden first year in Toronto, he bounced back last year, appearing in 72 games.

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. 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.

The only negative is this deal does ensure that Toronto can not exceed more than about $125 million in team salary this season.

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.

Starting with the draft picks the Brooklyn Nets will receive from the Toronto Raptors, they clearing won the trade.
