DeMarre Carroll joining Brooklyn Nets in National Basketball Association trade

1:22 | NBA         NBA Free Agency Which team has handed out the worst contract

Ujiri pulled off two trades in about 12 hours, sending veteran forward DeMarre Carroll to Brooklyn in a salary dump and landing C.J. Miles in a sign-and-trade with in for Cory Joseph, three people with knowledge of the dealings told The Associated Press.

When the Toronto Raptors agreed to send (courtesy of the Sporting News) DeMarre Carroll to the Brooklyn Nets for Justin Hamilton, it was seen as a cost-saving deal. In order for the Nets to agree to take on Carroll's two-year, $30 million contract, the Raptors are also giving the Nets a 2018 lottery-protected first-round pick and a 2018 second-round pick.

Hamilton averaged 6.9 points and 4.1 rebounds last season.

He was waived by the Heat last week and hasn't been able to play in an National Basketball Association game since February 2016. 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. IN was concerned that he will decline his 2018-19 player option when negotiating a trade earlier in the off-season. The risks they have taken to sign young, up and coming players are admirable. Joseph will compete with Darren Collison for the position. For starters, the Nets once again struck out in the Free Agent race. The Indiana Pacers need that wing depth with the departures of Paul George and C.J. Miles.

Donal Logue's Child Has Been Found, Is 'Safely Back Home' With Family
Logue's 16-year-old daughter Jade had been missing for more than a week after last being seen in New York City. Police provided no details about how or where she was found. "This got a lot bigger than you thought".

In Wright and second-year guard Fred VanVleet, the Raptors had capable backup and third-string point guards pushed down to third and fourth on the depth chart due to their depth at the position. Wojnarowski reported on Sunday that Toronto plans to waive Hamilton and stretch his $3 million salary cap hit over the next three seasons.

After adding Cory Joseph's salary to the books, the Indiana Pacers have $93,619,044 in salary. However, Toronto's salary cap flexibility was basically wiped out by that series of transactions and, given that the team did not boast a functional wing rotation, that presented a challenge.

So Ujiri moved quickly to plug the hole, agreeing to terms with Miles on a three-year, $25-million contract and sending backup point guard Joseph to the Pacers to complete the trade. As for the small forward spot, Bojan Bogdanovic and Glenn Robinson III will battle for that.
