  • At least the Raptors avoided a catastrophic slide

    DeMar DeRozan and Jonas Valanciunas alone were guaranteed more than $160 million. Other players were also owed enough that Toronto would have only limited means to replace its best player, Kyle Lowry, if he walked in unrestricted free agency – which seemed quite possible. It could have taken the Raptors years to tear down and maybe even longer to build back up.

  • Timeline to create Wizards' G-League team and practice facility becoming more clear

    No player has defined the Washington Wizards organization since they rebranded 20 years ago quite like John Wall, a superstar point guard who has developed from a first overall pick into a perennial All-Star and pillar of playoff success. Wall has etched a unique legacy within the franchise's history in just seven NBA seasons. It's the yearly terms that stand out most in Wall's new contract with the Wizards, a four-year extension worth $170 million. Four years does not sound long, but that will take Wall through at least the majority, if not all, of his prime. If Wall complets those 13 seasons with the Wizards, barring a trade or something unforeseen, he will have played as long for one team as Wes Unseld (Bullets), Larry Bird (Celtics), Kevin McHale (Celtics), Magic Johnson (Lakers) and Isaiah Thomas (Pistons).

Carroll, who will make $30 million over the next two seasons, admitted he wasn’t fit for Toronto’s isolation-heavy offense, that he is a role player at his best when his team moves the ball.

  • Nets acquire Carroll, picks from Raptors for Hamilton

    The Brooklyn Nets acquired forward DeMarre Carroll and two draft picks from the Toronto Raptors in exchange for center Justin Hamilton, according to the Associated Press. Carroll, 30, has two years and $30 million remaining on his deal, which allows the Raptors to clear enough cap space to make room for Kyle Lowry's three-year, $100 million deal, according to the AP. Guard Jeremy Lin said the team is excited to have Carroll and the versatility he brings. "He's going to be so instrumental because we desperately need somebody [like him],' Lin said, according to the New York Post. "He can definitely shoot the 3 and he can definitely play defense, which we really, really need help with. And he can
