Spurs Acquire DeMarre Carroll In Sign-And-Trade

JULY 6: The Spurs and Carroll’s agent Mark Bartelstein have reworked the forward’s deal to make it a three-year, $21MM contract, reports ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski (via Twitter).

Adding the third year was necessary since San Antonio officially acquired Carroll via sign-and-trade rather than signing him outright (sign-and-trade contracts must be for at least three years). That deal is outlined right here.

JUNE 30: DeMarre Carroll has agreed to join the Spurs on a two-year deal, Shams Charania of The Athletic tweets. The contract will pay him $13MM over the two seasons.

Carroll spent the last two seasons in Brooklyn after the Nets acquired him via trade from the Raptors during the 2017 offseason. With Brooklyn landing Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, the team was limited in what it could offer free agents, so Carroll departing isn’t major news.

For the Spurs, it’s their second deal of the day with the team re-signing Rudy Gay. The Spurs forward rotation appears stable.

Barring some sort of sign-and-trade arrangement, the Spurs figure to sign Carroll using their mid-level exception.

    The Spurs are gearing up for a surprise run next season. Murray is going to be a star, look like a second round exit right now though.

    They needed help at that spot too. Very good pickup, as everyone else said. I do wonder about his fit with DeRozan in his iso tendencies, but it’s the Spurs, so it should be fine, and DeRozan was much better last year u til he reverted to send them home in the playoffs

    Good for DeMarre in getting the third year. He really helped the Nets get to the point where they are and I wish him the best.

    3 year deal? Terrible. Look how that worked out for the raptors when the did that

      The Nets really went to bat for him. I bet they said to Spurs, you can have him for free if you give him 3 years guaranteed. This year teams are helping out EX-players like never before, aware of the players-deciding trend, trying to get good reputations among players.

      I say this because Carroll will probably be past his expiration date before 3 years. He’s come back before but is close to 33 now.
