DeMarre Carroll scored 15 points on 5-of-12 shooting (including three treys) with two rebounds, three assists and one steal over 24 minutes in Monday's exhibition loss to the Warriors.
Carroll walked over to team trainers and pointed to his foot, and beat writer Mike Ganter says he appeared to roll his ankle during the game. We'll keep an eye on the situation but we're not putting him on the injury report unless news worsens. Oct 6 - 1:22 AM

DeMarre Carroll said that defense will be his main focus in Toronto this season.

"I’m going to come in first and foremost and focus on defense," Carroll said. "I think defense is the most value I’m going to bring to the team so if I come in focused on defence and let my offense take care of itself, then I’ll be good. I just don’t want to come in first mainly thinking about offense, because that’s not who I am." Prospective owners shouldn't worry too much about these comments because Carroll is still going to get plenty of touches on offense because the Raptors need him to spread the floor. He could also spend a lot of time as a stretch four in small-balll lineups, so he will be an easy mid-round pick in drafts this season.

Coach Dwane Casey said DeMarre Carroll can play some power forward for the Raptors.

"He can guard the four position with LeBron James at the four, Carmelo Anthony at the four, Paul George back and at the four," Casey said. The Hawks used Carroll in a more diverse role as the year went on, especially in the postseason. In fact, Carroll's assists, usage rate, and scoring more off the dribble all went up in the playoffs compared to the regular season. He should be in for a big role this season.

The Hawks were choosing between keeping DeMarre Carroll or Paul Millsap in free agency.

Carroll admitted as much after signing with the Toronto Raptors. Considering #WeTheNorth threw $15 million per season in DC's direction, it's not a surprise to see things play out as they did. Carroll will be primed for an enormous role as the Raptors' new near-max player.
Jul 6 - 9:50 AM

DeMarre Carroll has agreed to a four-year, $60 million deal with the Raptors.

Terrence Ross was a huge disappointment for the Raptors last season, so Carroll will immediately step in as the starting small forward. It's a great signing for Toronto, as Carroll's defense, toughness and shooting stroke from beyond the arc will be a huge upgrade on the wing.

According to Vincent Ellis of the Detroit Free Press, the Pistons will target DeMarre Carroll and Danny Green in free agency this summer.

Carroll and Green will have no shortage of suitors on the open market, so this will be a very difficult task for Stan Van Gundy. SVG covets 3-point shooters, and both Carroll and Green are lethal from beyond the arc. Detroit was able to take Stanley Johnson in the draft with the eight pick, but his value could take a hit if the Pistons sign another wing this summer.

DeMarre Carroll declined to offer any insight into his upcoming free agency plans during a recent interview.

Carroll will have plenty of suitors when he becomes an unrestricted free agent this summer, but the 28-year-old wasn't in the mood to share his plans. "You know Atlanta played a big/major role in my life, major part of my family life so it would always be good to get back to Atlanta its a great system that I grew up in and you know kind of excelled in," Carroll said. "But, on the same token, my options are open and hopefully its Atlanta they will and have, they will be one of my best options but like I said before my options are open and Mark Bartelstein my agent he will handle all that process. He just told me to sit back and enjoy the ride." We'll keep an eye on Carroll throughout the summer, but he's positioned to be a mid-to-late round fantasy option no matter where he lands.
Jun 9 - 10:18 AM

DeMarre Carroll is reportedly interested in joining the New York Knicks.

Carroll is set to become a free agent this summer and reportedly would like to play for Knicks head coach Derek Fisher as the two used to work out together during the offseason. The Knicks have plenty of cap space to use, but won't be the only suitor for Carroll so we'll have to loop back on this one. Wherever he ends up, Carroll represents a solid mid-to-late round fantasy option after averaging 14.6 points, 6.1 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.8 three-pointers in the playoffs.

DeMarre Carroll, who suffered a sprained knee during the series vs. the Cavaliers, was also dealing with turf toe.

Carroll said that if the injury happened during the regular season that he probably would have missed three to four weeks. He also added that he couldn't put any pressure on his left leg and couldn't get any elevation when he jumped, so it shows just how tough of a player he really is. The good news is that surgery will not be required for either injury, and he should be fine with some rest this summer. Carroll is set to become a free agent, and the Hawks will have plenty of competition to sign him to a long-term deal.

According to ESPN, DeMarre Carroll could receive a four-year, $50 million contract in free agency this summer.

Carroll easily had the best season of his career this year, and his play in the postseason was phenomenal. He averaged 14.6 points, 6.1 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.8 3-pointers while shooting 48.6 percent from the field in the playoffs, and he showed a lot of heart when he battled through a knee injury against the Cavaliers. Teams such as the Celtics, Lakers and Pistons will do their best to pry Carroll away from the Hawks, so Atlanta will have their work cut out for them if they want to keep him on their roster.

DeMarre Carroll logged 41 minutes on Sunday to finish the Hawks' road loss with 10 points on 4-of-12 shooting, two 3-pointers, three rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block.

His lone block came on a LeBron James post-up, which is impressive enough, and he didn't commit any turnovers -- the Hawks as a team only had seven. Carroll's knee is "nowhere near" 100 percent but he's giving Atlanta everything he has in a tough matchup vs. LeBron, and his free agent value has steadily risen throughout the postseason. There's no reason to think he's at risk of missing Tuesday's must-win Game 4.

DeMarre Carroll (knee) said that he cherishes the opportunity to go toe-to-toe against LeBron James in the Eastern Conference Finals, and he has no intention of taking any days off to get his knee right.

"I've been getting a million calls and emails about me, why am I there, this might be the biggest contract of my life," said Carroll. "But at the end of the day this game isn't promised to you. So whenever you've got an opportunity to play basketball, a lot of people say it's bigger than money and it feels like that to me. I cherish this game and I want to be out there fighting, and if I have to fight on one leg, I'm gonna fight on one leg. I can't let this opportunity pass me by. Eastern Conference finals, playing against LeBron James. I don't care if I have to do it on one leg, I'll hobble out there." He'll be out there for Sunday's Game 3, and he may have some shots coming his way with Kyle Korver (ankle) done for the rest of the postseason.
May 24 - 4:19 PM

DeMarre Carroll admitted that his knee is "nowhere near" 100 percent, but he is ready to go to battle with his teammates in Game 3 vs. the Cavaliers on Sunday.

"I’m standing here," Carroll said in regards to his knee. "I put myself out there to help my team, whatever it takes. I know my knee is nowhere near 100 (percent). But at the end of the day if I’m out there I’m going to give it my all and hopefully my team has my back." You have to admire the guy's heart, and it's obvious that his knee was giving him a lot of problems in Game 2. Carroll will spend a lot of time guarding LeBron James again tonight, but he could be forced to shoot more with Kyle Korver (ankle) on the shelf.
May 24 - 12:19 PM

DeMarre Carroll implied that his knee was fine after Friday's Game 2 loss vs. the Cavaliers.

"Physically, I got out there, so I must've felt good," Carroll said. "But when you're a little kid, you dream of an opportunity to play in the Eastern Conference Finals and along, playing against one of the best players in the world. I didn't care if I had one leg, I wasn't going to let this pass me by." Carroll is one of the toughest players in the league, and even though he probably wouldn't admit it, he was clearly hobbled throughout the game on Friday. The fact that he played 34 minutes speaks volumes about his character, so there is no reason to think that he will be in danger of missing Game 3 on Sunday.
May 23 - 9:57 AM

DeMarre Carroll bounced back from a scary looking knee injury in Game 1 against the Cavs to play in Game 2, finishing with six points on 2-of-6 shooting and three rebounds in a team-high 34 minutes.

Carroll was clearly hobbled and fairly lucky that LeBron James didn't test him as much as he could have. Still, the fact that he led his team in minutes and didn't back down from the challenge tonight are huge feathers in his cap for free agency. He needs some of his teammates to show the same fire he had tonight.
