The Brooklyn Nets acquired forward DeMarre Carroll and two draft picks from the Toronto Raptors in exchange for center Justin Hamilton, according to the Associated Press.
Carroll, 30, has two years and $30 million remaining on his deal, which allows the Raptors to clear enough cap space to make room for Kyle Lowry's three-year, $100 million deal, according to the AP.
Guard Jeremy Lin said the team is excited to have Carroll and the versatility he brings.
"He's going to be so instrumental because we desperately need somebody [like him],'' Lin said, according to the New York Post. "He can definitely shoot the 3 and he can definitely play defense, which we really, really need help with. And he can do more than that. But just veteran leadership, toughness, grit, I'm hoping he comes in and is a vocal leader.Those are some things that we need."
Carroll averaged 8.9 points and 3.8 rebounds in 72 games for Toronto last season. Brooklyn will also acquire a 2018 lottery-protected first-round pick and another second-round pick.
Hamilton, 27, averaged 6.9 points and 4.1 rebounds in 64 games last season.
