The Toronto Raptors have made a pair of deals as they try to avoid significant luxury tax penalties. If Carroll can gain some chemistry with Russell in the preseason then he has a chance to average in the 20 point range as the primary scorer for the Nets. I believe that Collison could be a temporary backup point guard to help meet the salary cap floor. Raptors point guard Cory Joseph will head back to IN in the deal. According to my calculations, they still have $5,473,956 in salary cap space.

On the Nets' side, the only deterrent in this trade is Carroll's effect on their cap situation (sorry J Ham). He was the one free agent realistically available within Toronto's budget who could credibly be considered an upgrade on Carroll.

The veteran defensive stopper brings more grit and some playoff experience to Brooklyn's roster as they trudge forward with a total rebuild this summer. While Miles is likely to regress from that accuracy, he's more of a 3-point threat overall because of his superior volume beyond the arc.

Although they may not have been able to make it happen, I wouldn't have minded at all if the Jazz had looked to make a move similar to this to try and pick up their former small forward.

Stanton to defend, Judge hopes to rule Home Run Derby
The fourth seed is Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas and he will go up against five seed Miguel Sano from the Minnesota Twins. He's averaged a home run every 10.1 at bats and is third in the majors with a.613 slugging percentage (Judge is first at.697).

Anti-Qatar bloc threatens further steps against Gulf state
Its foreign minister, Sigmar Gabriel, this week visited Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Kuwait, the mediator in the feud. They later issued a 10-day ultimatum to a 13-point list of demands.

Carroll, an oft-injured forward, thanked Toronto fans on Sunday morning in an Instagram post that included a picture of both Toronto supporters and the Barclays Center, the home of the Brooklyn Nets. Joseph will be the better defender of that duo, and if you squint hard you can imagine him becoming a younger version of George Hill in Indiana's system. He started 72 regular season games for the Raptors last season and averaged 8.9 points, 3.8 boards, and shot 34% from three. Still, the price point for Lowry and DeRozan makes things quite hard to build a legitimate contender moving forward, especially when coupled with more than $35 million annually for the frontcourt duo of Ibaka and Jonas Valanciunas. IN was concerned that he will decline his 2018-19 player option when negotiating a trade earlier in the off-season.

With the Indiana Pacers acquiring Cory Joseph, it will take Lance Stephenson out of the running for the starting point guard spot.
