DeMarre Carroll is headed to the 6. The Toronto Raptors signed the forward to a 4-year, $60 million deal making him the highest paid player on their roster. This is a huge pickup for the Raps who were missing some young toughness and grit during their first round series against the Wizards.
Obviously this is a tough loss for the Hawks as Carroll was their best player in the postseason. Via Yahoo Sports!
Free-agent forward DeMarre Carroll has agreed to a four-year, $60 million deal with the Toronto Raptors, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
Carroll leaves the Atlanta Hawks to join the Raptors, who will likely lose forward Amir Johnson in free agency.
Carroll gives the Raptors an elite defender and a skilled offensive player as general manager Masai Ujiri reshapes his roster.
Carroll averaged 12.6 points and 5.3 rebounds in 70 games for the Hawks last season.
