DeMarre Carroll Agrees to $12 Million Deal With Spurs

DeMarre Carroll

Former Brooklyn Nets forward DeMarre Carroll has signed a two-year, $12 million deal with the San Antonio Spurs.

Carroll averaged 11.1 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 2018-2019 with the Nets. These were small steps up from his career averages of 9.1 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists spanning 10 NBA seasons and seven different NBA teams. The San Antonio Spurs will be his eighth.

Primarily an offensive weapon, he has shot 36 percent from 3-point range, 43 percent from the field with a 74.3 percent free throw percentage. His defensive numbers are less impressive, with less than one steal per game and 0.3 blocks.

A role-player for most of his career, it is likely he will continue that trend for coach Gregg Popovich, whose Spurs have made the NBA Playoffs a record 21 consecutive years. It is unclear the exact role Carroll will play or what need he fits with San Antonio, but it is a low-risk deal for both sides.

Carroll played in 67 games last year for the Nets, and averaged over 25 minutes. He served as a solid piece for a surprising Brooklyn team that just made the playoffs. Adding Kevin Durant to their roster earlier today puts them in a good position to return, depending on Durant’s health.
