Atlantic Notes: Raptors, Sixers, Knicks

DeMarre Carroll, who joined the Raptors this past summer when he signed for four years and $58MM, is still in the process of finding his rhythm in Toronto’s offense, Eric Koreen of the National Post details. Carroll was supposed to be a significant part of the Raptors’ success, but so far he has had an unimportant role, Koreen adds. Carroll has missed 12 games and has played with nagging injuries, as Koreen points out. At 20-13 heading into action Friday, the Raptors have managed despite Carroll’s struggles, but if the small forward gets going, Toronto’s future is all the more bright, Koreen surmises.

I don’t see a scenario where Oladipo and LaVine are fits. Oladipo is arguably better than Noel (although as a big man, Noel will always have more upside). However, both Minnesota and Orlando have big men in place who might not mesh well with Noel (such as Vucevic in Orlando) or might limit their growth (such as Towns in Minny). Boston also has its fair share of big men and might value Smart more than Noel. Atlanta would be the only fit since Horford could walk after this year.

With that being said, he is not really a defender. Zeller can score around the basket and has developed a bit of a mid range jumper. A decent rebounder and defender but nothing special. Lee, scores around the basket and rebounds well. Not a very good defender and is aging. Mickey is a developing project. He is developing an offensive game but rebounds Well considering… Read more »

They were decent scenarios minus Marcus Smart. I think they can do better like finding a way to get a point guard from Phoenix.
