   Addendum to the Xavier Henry thing

[...] It would have been very possible for [Xavier] Henry and [Greivis] Vasquez to meet those incentives. A 15 minute-per-game average in at least 70 games played in a season sounds like a lot, but it's not; 176 players in the NBA achieved this last year, including six Grizzlies. Two other Grizzlies damn nearly did it; Hasheem Thabeet (13mpg in 68 games) and DeMarre Carroll (11.2mpg in 71 games), and they did it while playing fairly badly (with PER's of 12.9 and 8.5 respectively).

2) Memphis signed Hasheem Thabeet and DeMarre Carroll to the standard contract of 100% + 20% in likely performance incentives, as recently as last year. They know the protocol, too, and historically have always played by it.

   DeMar DeRozan thrives in the arcane, but can he make his team better from there?

[...] DeMarre Carroll and Jonas Valanciunas are not drawing much defensive respect outside of the paint, while Patrick Patterson is not making enough shots this season to capitalise. Although somewhat effective, backup point guard Cory Joseph is not the scoring counterpart of DeRozan in the same way Lowry is, while Delon Wright and Fred VanVleet are not NBA calibre primary playmakers at this time. And while Serge Ibaka has become one of the better stretch bigs in the game, he is not creating looks with or without the ball so much as just taking what crops up. DeRozan is at his best as the first or second scoring option in a two-option line-up, but without Lowry, Toronto has thus far only had one.[...]

   2017 NBA Manifesto

DeMarre Carroll
SF, 6’8, 215lbs, 30 years old, 8 years of experience

Injuries robbed him of his first season with the team, and yet in the second one, he looked no better. The defender, cutter and spotter that was Hawks-era Carroll is not here. Carroll still makes good reads defensively and racks up the steals, but he also gets caught slipping and is very beatable on the perimeter by any opponent with speed, while despite an increase in his three-point rate (career high .583), his three-point percentage is down (34.1%). Both of these will have something to do with his shot selection, which also tumbled. Put it this way – if Carroll had provided what it was thought that he would, Tucker wouldn’t have been needed.

Player Plan: Two years and a combined $30.2 million remaining, all guaranteed with no options. It has become a bad contract, but hopefully, with a bounce-back year next year, it can be moved or allowed to play out. Considering the needs to re-sign both Ibaka and Lowry, one of he or Valanciunas will surely be on the move if they manage it, and perhaps both.

   NBA Fantasy Preview - 3rd November 2017

Carroll has shaken off two mediocre previous seasons with a strong start to this one. His 14.0 points, 6.1 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 0.6 blocks per game are careers highs across the board; he also very rarely turns the ball over, has little competition at his position, and represents good value if he keeps those numbers up.

   NBA Fantasy Preview - 27th November 2017

Carroll has been consistent this season, averaging 13.2 points, 6.9 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.1 steals per game, the first two of which are on pace to be career highs. His shooting efficiency from the field is down, due to some inefficient shooting in the paint – however, Carroll is making up for this by getting to the free throw line far better than ever before in his career, and is back near his alert best on the defensive end. This is a rejuvenated Carroll this season, and he regularly outperforms his salary slot. If regular feature on this list Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (listed as “questionable” at the time of writing) misses tonight’s game after playing only 9 minutes last night due to injury, then Carroll could further experience a one game spike, just as he did last night with 39.2 fantasy points.
