Just one day after the Raptors dealt DeMarre Carroll's contract into Brooklyn's cap space, Toronto acquires Miles on a much cheaper deal to fill that small forward void.
Instead, the Pacers still got their guy and Toronto found a better Carroll replacement at around half the price. In 2016-17, Hamilton played in a career-high 64 games, average 7 points and 4 rebounds for the Nets.
Coming off a career-best season with the Atlanta Hawks, Carroll and the Raptors agreed to a four-year, $60 million USA contract in the 2015 off-season.
For the Pacers, the consistent and defensively-solid Joseph fits with their plan to rebuild after trading Paul George to Oklahoma City, ESPN notes.

Donal Logue's Daughter Jade Found Safe After Nearly 2 Weeks Missing
Donal Logue's teen daughter Jade Logue , who went missing nearly two weeks ago in Brooklyn, New York, is safe and finally at home. Logue's friend, actor Danny Trejo , posted a heartfelt video to his own Facebook page asking for Jade's safe return.
The only negative is this deal does ensure that Toronto can not exceed more than about $125 million in team salary this season.
The trade won't become official until the Wizards complete the process of matching Brooklyn's approximately $106.5 million offer sheet for wing Otto Porter, Jr. It was easy for the Raptors' front office to agree to trade Carroll, who was slowly slipping out of the rotation.
Carroll will have an opportunity to continue as a starting small forward with the Nets. At a minimum, getting the 2018 first and second round picks makes this all worthwhile, earning the Nets a B+ trade grade.
Nevertheless, the former Jazzman still brings many of those coveted untangibles to the table and could end up being a very nice pickup for the long-struggling Brooklyn Nets. By 2014-15, Carroll was putting up 12.6 points per game with incredible efficiency - 48.7 percent from the field and a blistering 39.5 percent from deep - while also chipping in 5.3 rebounds and almost two assists per game.
While the Nets could attempt to move salary to sign either player, it takes two teams to make a deal. And, if the Nets decide they want to ease LeVert into the role, similarly to what they did previous year, he could perhaps split the starting job with Carroll throughout the season.
