Raptors intend to waive Hamilton

The Raptors agreed to the Carroll deal late Saturday night, then quickly moved to fill his spot as a shooter and wing defender by acquiring Miles on Sunday morning.

The Raptors sent Carroll to Brooklyn and two draft picks for Center Justin Hamilton. Miles for Cory Joseph, league sources told ESPN.

However, the #Toronto Raptors were unwilling to let National Basketball Association news end as they performed two separate trades today, one with the Brooklyn Nets and another with the Indiana Pacers, ESPN reported.

The Raptors re-signed both Lowry and Ibaka to maintain their core. The Raptors add Miles after reportedly trading starting small forward DeMarre Carroll to Brooklyn in what amounts to a salary dump.

As for Stephenson, he will likely split time at shooting guard and small forward.

Next, the Toronto Raptors came to an agreement on a sign-and-trade deal with the Indiana Pacers.




After an injury-ridden first year in Toronto, he bounced back last year, appearing in 72 games. He averaged 6.9 points and 4.1 rebounds. Nets coach Kenny Atkinson coached Carroll when he was an assitant in Atlanta. He'll get a fresh start in Brooklyn, and a chance to be a veteran voice on a young team.

Instead of focusing on free agency, the Brooklyn Nets took to the trade market.

The longer-term vision for Brooklyn is clear here. He is owed around $7.6 million for this upcoming season and his player option is worth an estimated $7.9 million.

Justin Hamilton wasn't any kind of huge contributor for the Nets. Entering the roster as a relatively unknown player who the Jazz picked up after he was waived by the Denver Nuggets, Carroll had somewhat of a breakout year in his next season in Utah in 2012-13 where in limited minutes he averaged six points on 46 percent shooting from the field while adding 2.8 rebounds and almost an assist and a steal per game. First and foremost, Sean Marks has gained yet another draft pick for a team that was deprived of them previously.
