Whether it's with the Brooklyn Nets or another team, DeMarre Carroll believes D'Angelo Russell should get a max deal in free agency this summer.

Russell becomes a restricted free agent this offseason, meaning the Nets can match any offer sheet should Russell sign one with another team. If Brooklyn signs Kyrie Irving like everyone expects them to, though, the Nets could renounce Russell's free agent rights, making him an unrestricted free agent instead.

Carroll says Russell has earned a max contract based off the way he played in 2018-19.

“Hopefully for DLo – if it’s not here if it’s somewhere else – I think he earned himself a max deal,” Carroll told Michael Scotto of The Athletic. “He earned himself a max deal to take care of his family for the rest of their life. He’s just got to enjoy the moment and enjoy whether it’s here or somewhere else.”

Russell is coming off the best statistical season of his NBA career. The lefty made his first All-Star team and led the Nets to the playoffs for the first time since 2015. Russell averaged 21.1 points, 3.9 rebounds and 7.0 assists during the regular season while shooting 43.4 percent from the field, 36.9 percent from beyond the arc and 78.0 percent from the free-throw line.

If Russell doesn't return to the Nets, he will likely be pursued by the Los Angeles Lakers, Minnesota Timberwolves, Orlando Magic and Phoenix Suns. Russell, of course, began his career with the Lakers.
