DeMarre Carroll Says Raptors Players ‘Didn’t Trust Each Other’ Last Season

With his exit from the Toronto Raptors rapidly approaching, DeMarre Carroll sounded off on the atmosphere around the team over the last year. 

In an interview with the Toronto Sun‘s Ryan Wolstat, Carroll was critical of Toronto’s offense, saying the Raptors’ isolation-heavy style resulted from a lack of on-court cohesion:

“But once adversity hits and stuff starts going wrong, guys are going to go back to ISO basketball, that’s how it is. You’ve got to trust it. It’s one of those things you’ve got to build, you’ve just got to trust each other. This year, I feel like a lot of guys didn’t trust each other and a lot of guys, they didn’t feel like other guys could produce or (be) given the opportunity, so there was a lot of lack of trust on our team, so that’s what hindered us from going (as far as they wanted to go).”

The Raptors agreed Saturday to trade Carroll to the Brooklyn Nets, according to’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
