Spurs, DeMarre Carroll rework deal, make it 3 years for $21 million
The San Antonio Spurs and veteran small forward DeMarre Carroll have reworked their deal, Caroll’s agent Mark Bartelstein tells Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
Carroll will sign a three-year, $21 million deal with the Spurs instead of a two-year deal worth $13 million. As part of the three-team deal that will land Davis Bertans with the Wizards, Washington will send the rights to forward Aaron White to Brooklyn. The Nets are sending Carroll to the Spurs in the trade.

This past season with the Nets, DeMarre Carroll averaged 11.1 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.3 assists while shooting 39.5 percent from the field, 34.2 percent from beyond the arc and 76.0 percent from the free-throw line. The swingman will reunite with DeMar DeRozan in San Antonio. The two forwards were teammates on the Toronto Raptors for two seasons.
Carroll has career averages of 9.1 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 554 NBA games with the Memphis Grizzlies, Houston Rockets, Denver Nuggets, Utah Jazz, Atlanta Hawks, Raptors and Nets. The Spurs are excited to add Carroll, who is a good defender and will stretch the floor for them.
San Antonio lost to the Denver Nuggets in the first round of the 2019 playoffs in seven games. The Spurs will get starting point guard Dejounte Murray back for next season. Murray missed the entire 2019-20 campaign after tearing his ACL in the preseason.
