DeMarre Carroll started for the Nets on Sunday and notched 12 points, three assists, two rebounds, two steals and one block in 24 minutes.
Carroll made 4-of-8 field goals, including a pair of 3-pointers, and he showed the type of all-around abilities that made him a fantasy force in Atlanta. We'll need to see more than a few solid preseason games before fully buying in, but the 31-year-old is at least worth monitoring during the early stages of the regular season. Oct 8 - 10:44 PM

DeMarre Carroll scored nine points with eight rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes against the Heat on Thursday.

He's healthy and he's a "glue guy," according to coach Kenny Atkinson, who was close with Carroll in Atlanta, and said the Nets also really want to use him as a small-ball four. Carroll was an early-round fantasy producer in his last year with the Hawks, so maybe Atkinson can unlock that magic again. He's not a bad pick at the end of your draft.

DeMarre Carroll will be in the starting lineup for Tuesday's preseason game against the Knicks.

Joining Carroll in the starting five will be Jeremy Lin, D'Angelo Russell, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Timofey Mozgov. Allen Crabbe is currently recovering from an ankle injury, which made Carroll the presumptive starter, but Crabbe could certainly usurp Carroll for that starting spot once healthy.

DeMarre Carroll said that his knee feels healthy for the first time in a couple years.

He was really excited about his trade to Brooklyn and it's no secret that he needed a fresh start after looking washed in Toronto. The Nets are expected to start Allen Crabbe at SF and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson as a small-ball PF, so Carroll will be used as a combo forward off the bench. There's very little fantasy appeal here unless he moves up the depth chart or finds the form he had back in Atlanta a few years ago.

DeMarre Carroll said he was excited to get traded from the Raptors.

"It was like a rush of joy just ran through my body," Carroll said when he found out about the deal. Coach Kenny Atkinson was with Carroll in their Atlanta days and Carroll said Atkinson really helped him on cutting and playing on the move. "Me being in a system where the coach gets me and now I can do what I do, play defense and shoot the three ball, I feel like this is the best environment for me," Carroll added. The Nets are likely to go young and Carroll's knee injuries have held him back, so he's not the best fantasy target.

Jeremy Lin said that the Nets "desperately" needed someone like DeMarre Carroll.

"He can definitely shoot the [3-point shot] and he can definitely play defense, which we really, really need help with," Lin said. "And he can do more than that. But just veteran leadership, toughness, grit. I’m hoping he comes in and is a vocal leader. Those are some things that we need." Carroll was just a salary dump and Brooklyn received two drafts picks in return, but there's a chance he could get his career back on track with the Nets. Brooklyn head coach Kenny Atkinson was an assistant for Atlanta during Carroll's best years in the NBA, so maybe he can help get him going.

The Raptors traded DeMarre Carroll, a future first-round and second-round pick to Brooklyn for Justin Hamilton, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of

The Raptors have been looking to get Carroll of their books and they were able to do so with Nets GM Sean Marks. With P.J. Tucker in Houston and Terrence Ross in Orlando from a deadline deal, it's officially Norman Powell time in Canada. As for Carroll, the Nets will probably keep his minutes down to play some of their younger guys.

The Raptors could be looking to trade DeMarre Carroll in a salary dump move, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of

Woj says that the Raptors are looking to get Carroll's bad contract off the books and may use a protected first-round pick to help find a team to take it. The emergence of Norman Powell is a clear factor in this thinking, and it doesn't help that Carroll's knee basically hasn't been 100 percent since he signed his deal two years ago.
Jul 1 - 7:48 PM

DeMarre Carroll logged just six minutes off the bench in Toronto's Game 4 loss to Cleveland on Sunday, finishing with just two points, two rebounds and one assist.

Carroll barely produced late-round value in his second season with the Raptors, and he wasn’t even worth owning after the break when his averages dipped to 7.2 points, 3.7 boards, 1.0 steal and 1.2 triples a night while connecting on just 36.9 percent of his shot attempts. He’s basically just a spot up shooter with the Raptors, so it has to hurt Toronto management that he’s owed roughly another $30.2 million over the next two seasons.
May 7 - 6:45 PM

DeMarre Carroll headed to the bench on Wednesday, missing all six of his field goal attempts to finish scoreless with two steals, one rebound, one assist and one block in 19 minutes.

Carroll had just three points and four rebounds in 15 minutes during Game 1 on Monday, and the move to the second unit obviously didn't get him going. Nobody on the Raptors has been capable of slowing down LeBron James, which is theoretically one of Carroll's primary jobs -- if he's also bricking his shots, there's no reason to think his role will increase in Game 3.
May 3 - 10:07 PM

DeMarre Carroll played just 17 minutes and hit 3-of-4 shots for nine points, one rebounds, one assist, one block and two 3-pointers in Tuesday's win over the Bucks.

Patrick Patterson played 30 minutes and P.J. Tucker got 28 of them off the bench, which severely limited Carroll's playing time. Carroll managed just five points and four boards in Game 1 and it will be interesting to see how long he'll stick in the starting lineup if he doesn't get it turned around. He's not worth using in any format these days.
Apr 18 - 9:47 PM

DeMarre Carroll went 1-of-6 from the field during Sunday's win over the Knicks, finishing with just three points, two boards and one assist to his credit.

Carroll been absolutely dreadful over the past few weeks, connecting on just 34.8 percent of his shot attempts to go with forgettable averages of 6.9 points, 1.7 triples and not much else, and he's ranked well outside of the top-200 during that seven-game span. Leave him on the wire.
Apr 9 - 3:48 PM

DeMarre Carroll played only 13 minutes vs. Detroit, going 1-of-6 from the field for two points, one rebound and one steal.

This was bad even by Carroll's own low standards this season. He averaged 11.0 points and 3.0 triples in his previous three games, with very little else to support his value, and his role shrank tonight with Toronto leaning on P.J. Tucker in a variety of lineups. Between the injuries and inefficiency, it's been a brutal season for Carroll in fantasy leagues.
Apr 5 - 10:31 PM

DeMarre Carroll (back) returned to the starting lineup on Wednesday, but he posted just three points, three rebounds, one assist and one block in 25 minutes.

Carroll has struggled with injuries and inconsistency all season, and there's no reason to think that will change in Toronto's final seven regular-season games. He's better in 9-cat leagues due to minimal turnovers, and is a decent source of 3-pointers with some defensive stats, but that's about it.
Mar 30 - 12:05 AM

DeMarre Carroll (back) will start and P.J. Tucker will come off the bench against the Hornets on Wednesday.

Carroll is back after missing his last two games. He was only playing around 20 minutes before his injury, so he should be in that neighborhood. With his return, Tucker, Norman Powell, Delon Wright, Jonas Valanciunas and Jakob Poeltl could lose a few minutes with the rotation change. Leave Carroll on the wire in most cases.
