‘Junkyard Dog 2.0’ is a fitting nickname for Toronto’s DeMarre Carroll; one of the realest two-way wings in the game, Carroll does whatever it takes to contain his counterpart; nice principles on offense – good shooter, can spot up or make a few dribbles before rising up; Carroll was a scorer in college, let’s pretend like we didn’t forget – expanded his game in the pros as a pull-up J, floater guy*; doesn’t force bad shots, hits open threes and slashes well down the middle; tough as nails; injury prone, better suited as a 6ix Man or does Dwane Casey have other plans in mind?

*Carroll’s the rare pull-up guy who’ll rise up from downtown and inside the arc (most players tend towards the former)
