The Nets are back in the mix and will look to take another big leap this summer

Trey Lyles started for the resting LaMarcus Aldridge on Sunday but didn't do much to impress, logging five points (1-of-5 shooting), six rebounds and a steal in 19 minutes.
Lyles is going to try and fill the shoes of the departed Davis Bertans as a big who can stretch the floor, but performances like this won't help his case to be in the rotation on opening night. DeMarre Carroll, who had 13 points, four rebounds and three triples, is the far better bet for fantasy production among San Antonio's bench forwards.

DeMarre Carroll drew a link between the defensive philosophies of Mike Budenholzer and Gregg Popovich, expressing optimism that he can he thrive as an aggresive defender in San Antonio's system as he did in Atlanta's.
Carroll makes a decent point in connecting the similarities of the two systems and noting that he was at the top pf his game when he played in Budenholzer's in Atlanta. While we don't expect Carroll to ever return to the level of production he enjoyed then, it's not impluasible to see him bounce back in San Antonio after a few injury riddled seasons. He's still not worth drafting, but could become a nice deep-league asset if things brake right for him.

The Spurs have announced the acquisition of DeMarre Carroll.
Carroll lands with the Spurs on a three-team deal, and he has re-worked an original two-year, $13 million agreement into a three-year, $21 million deal. He should be the same low-end source of threes and steals in San Antonio next season and will give the Spurs a little more versatility at the forward spots than they've had recently. Davis Bertans was acquired by Washington while the Nets received draft rights to Aaron White (via WAS) and Nemanja Dangubic (via SAS).

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Spurs and DeMarre Carroll have reworked his deal to make it three years, $21 million.
Carroll's original deal was two years, $13 million so he'll be getting an extra $8 million in that third year. He was a very important piece to the Nets last season and he'll likely serve a similar role on the Spurs. He could actually hold some fantasy value next season as the Spurs haven't made a ton of moves, but it's still too soon to be sure.

According to Shams Charania, the Spurs are signing DeMarre Carroll to a two-year deal worth $13 million.
Carroll should carve out a nice role as a floor-spacing 3-point shooter off the bench for the Spurs next season. He could flirt with standard-league value, but at this point, it's too early to tell since the free agent frenzy dust hasn't settled yet.

DeMarre Carroll played 21 minutes after being removed from the starting lineup in Saturday's loss.
Carroll scored two points and missed all six of his shots. He did grab seven boards, including three on the offensive end. With Caris LeVert and Jared Dudley both contributing, Carroll will likely remain on the bench as a small-ball option.

DeMarre Carroll (wrist) will be available to play in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference playoffs against the Sixers on Saturday.
Carroll is a vital part of the Nets' rotation and although he doesn't provide much in terms of fantasy value, his intangibles will be vital in the first round series. Look for the Nets to give the Sixers all that they can handle in this Northeast showdown.

DeMarre Carroll (right wrist sprain) sat out Wednesday’s finale of a regular season that saw him drop out of the top 200 fantasy players.
Carroll’s per-game rankings were in the 235-260 range this season with his lone positive fantasy contribution being his 1.6 threes. The 32-year-old will be a free agent and might have a tough time finding 25 mpg again.

DeMarre Carroll (right wrist sprain) is out for the Nets' regular season finale against the Heat on Wednesday.
With Joe Harris also questionable, Treveon Graham and Jared Dudley are looking at expanded roles. Neither are very interesting for fantasy purposes, but you could do worse.

DeMarre Carroll finished Sunday's win over the Pacers with four points, five rebounds and a 2-of-7 shooting line in 16 minuets of action.
Carroll tied Rodions Kurucs for the fewest minutes of any Net that took the floor tonight, so his starting job doesn't guarantee anything in terms of playing time and production. Brooklyn clinched a playoff spot in this one and DC is a rest candidate, though the lack of clarity in the seeding picture means he's still a viable option if you need steals and threes. It just depends on how lucky you're feeling. Kurucs went 2-for-10 from the field in his short time on the floor tonight and fits a similar mold as Carroll, though he's got a lower floor.

DeMarre Carroll scored 20 points on 6-of-14 shooting with five rebounds, two assists, a block and two 3-pointers on Monday.
Carroll continues to produce big numbers and at this point he might just be able to carry it on until the end of the year. He's on a lot of waiver wires right now and is worth a shot if you need some triples and steals.

DeMarre Carroll scored 18 points on 5-of-8 shooting while adding four rebounds, a steal and four triples on Monday.
Carroll closed out the game because of Jarrett Allen and Ed Davis both fouling out, but he was productive in his time on the floor. He's still starting, but his upside is capped while the Nets are healthy.

DeMarre Carroll put up 15 points, six rebounds and three triples in a start against the Lakers on Friday.
Carroll replaced Caris LeVert in the starting lineup and the move could stick with how ineffective LeVert has been of late. Carroll has a shot at late-round value if he keeps holding down this spot in big minutes (35 tonight), so keep him in mind if you need rebounds, threes and steals. Think Diet P.J. Tucker.

DeMarre Carroll played well on Sunday in a loss to the Clippers as he had 22 points on 8-of-13 shooting with seven rebounds.
He made all five of his attempts from the stripe and went 3-of-6 from deep. Carroll has been a deep-league shooting specialist this season and remains in that conversation as long as he remains on the Nets bench.
