DeMarre Carroll has one of the worst contracts in the NBA. He has two years, $29.8 million left on the deal, and he hasn’t come close to living up to the “3&D” promise that got him the contract in the first place (in part due to knee injuries).

The Raptors are dumping that contract on the Nets, and Brooklyn picks up a few draft picks in the process, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

This is about the Raptors saving some money after paying Kyle Lowry this summer and getting the band back together (minus Patrick Patterson), plus paying DeMar DeRozan last summer. The cost of dumping $30 million is a couple of picks, one a first rounder, so that’s what the rebuilding Nets get.
