Indiana Pacers restricted free agent Jarrett Jack signed an offer sheet for four years, $20 million with the Toronto Raptors, NBA front-office sources told ESPN.com.

The Pacers have seven days to match the offer, which they expect to receive Sunday or Monday. Given the Pacers financial situation, it's unlikely they will match the offer, a source close to the process told ESPN.com.

Jack averaged a career-high 13.1 points, 3.4 rebounds and 4.1 assists for the Pacers last season. He started the final month of the season.

Jack would probably back up Jose Calderon at point guard in Toronto.

Could not be any happier with this move, as a raps fan, it gives us a veteran presence at the pg spot behind Calderon and of course Jack is one of Bosh's best friends (can only help in an attempt to resign him long term).. Great move by Colangelo!

Solid back up.

If it goes through it would be a good move.

Jack is still relativley young as well and by the time his contract is up he will be 29 i believe which, when he will be in his prime

did the raptors offer their mle for a back up point guard ? or are they under the cap to just sign a player ?

I think they did, that's roughly 5/yr, which is what the MLE is no?

I think they overpaid him ... they could've gotten him for less. But that's not to say that I think he'll be a terrific addition to the Raps. Back up point was a major weakness for them. Now do they have enough money to get Kleiza?

GREAT MOVE in every sense.

he is bosh's friend.

he is a very good PG, not flashy.

we fill in our biggest hole (no homo)

YES BC! great job

i like jarret jack, but not for the full MLE, not in this year's market. i know we only have the MLE (around 5 million), but 7 million can possibly get you an andre miller/odom calibre player this year. 5 million is not bad for a great backup PG though.

i would have prefered kleiza more.

we dont need Kleiza, we have enough big white 3 point shooters lol... plus we are getting Rasho back omg our lineup is ridicoulous if Indiana doesnt match

Calderon/Jack/Banks
Wright/Derozan/Douby
Turkoglu/George
Bosh/Evans/Pops
Bargnani/Patty O/Pops

Rasho? Did they sign him?

everyone is assuming Rasho will re-sign with Raptors, though nothing is official yet. There is mutual interest on both sides.

More shats!

Very Good! I think Jack can bring a lot of different things to the Raptors.

So when does the clock start for Indiana? Today or Monday?

Maybe a bit over-paid, but if they didnt then the Pacers would match so it had to be done to get him.

Nice Job raps.
Jack will now have subbed behind Calderon and Ford, Crazy.

i still think kleiza would be a good option for them or maybe barnes (if he is still out there)

Dude those are sick mutton chops. Back on topic I think this is a solid signing for the Raps, yes they had to give up a good amount of money but they really want to make sure that Indiana doesn't match.

I think you're a little off on what our lineup is going to look like...

Calderon/Jack/Ukic
Delfino/Derozan/Douby
Turk/Wright/George
Bosh/evans/Pops
Bargs/Rasho/POB

Anyway, great signing. Jack is a pretty solid PG, he should be a great back-up for you guys.

a bit overpaid, i mean thas $5M. Were not going to sign anymore FA's now except Delfino. But I think were going to buy-out Banks contract now, kuz were not going to have 4 PG's, buy-out Banks is likely to happen, then our roster looks like this.

PG: Jose/Jack/Roko
SG: DeRozan/Delfino
SF: Turk/Wright/George
PF: CB4/Pops/POB
C: Bargs/Evans

^^ FA's almost always get overpaid based on MARKET.

This is a very underrated player. If Indy does not match this contract then they really are hurting for money, because this is a bargain price for such a player.

We have Wright that can be a backup SF so we don't need to use our MLE on Kleiza. Resign Delfino and use a Vet min for Rasho and we have our deep bench back. We have 1 more spot since Douby is non-guaranteed. If we don't keep Douby, BC will probably get another C with a minimum just in case. Maybe resign Pops Mensah-Bonsu

C-Bargnani, Evans, Rasho
PF-Bosh, PMB, O'Bryant
SF-Turkoglu, Wright, George
SG-Derozan, Delfino, Banks
PG-Calderon, Jack, Ukic

the team is starting to look VERY solid. can DEF make some noise in an uncertain eastern conf. now its all on CB. if he can be consistent and a vocal leader, there is NO reason we cant be a juggernaut. if we cant win with THIS lineup, then it's eveident we can't win with CB.

From what I understand Delfino applies for one of the Bird options and Rasho can sign on as an LLE, so it won't just be Delfino. There's 3 roster spots empty and they can be filled with Jack, Delfino and Rasho - and from the looks of it that is what BC will try and do.

I hope they buy out Banks but we'll see. And everyone is saying it's the full MLE but that has yet to be made official, correct? It could be less than 5 mil.

Colangelo certainly hasn't sat on his hands this offseason so now let's see how all these moves help out the Raptors!

for 5 mill thats my hope as well small back court, taller bigger front court, i think it would work

Jarret Jack has always been one of the most under rated players in my opinion... I feel that the Raptors are making a great pick up here and that eventually he will push Calderon for that starting spot. I dont know what the Pacers are doing in this one

Yeah that would work out imo, well let's hope

Calderon 6'3
Jack 6'4
Turk 6'10
Bosh 6'11
Bargs 7'

Jack would fill a great need in Toronto, an aggressive, tough defender and a clutch scorer. He would supplement the toughness issues.
