Forward DeMarre Carroll said at Nets media day on Monday that he is 100 percent healthy for the first time in two years.
Carroll has dealt with a variety of injuries, including nagging knee, ankle and back issues that forced him to turn in two down seasons in Toronto. The 6'8" veteran forward was supposed to play a key role as a wing or stretch four with the Raptors but was occasionally passed over by Norman Powell and/or other more durable, consistent, younger players.
Carroll averaged 11.0 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.0 assists per game in 2015-16 before adding just 8.9 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.0 assists per game in last year's campaign.
The forward was traded to the Nets in a salary dump -- Brooklyn gave up Justin Hamilton in the deal, but received a lottery protected first rounder and an additional second rounder. The Nets also took on the final 2 years, $30 million of Carroll's contract.
In Brooklyn, Carroll will likely come off the bench as the Nets will look to play Allen Crabbe and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson at the three and the four positions.
