The Toronto Raptors continued their busy off-season makeover Saturday by preparing to extend an offer sheet to restricted free agent guard Jarrett Jack, according to multiple reports.

The Toronto Star is reporting the offer would be for four years, with no financial terms known at this point.

The Raptors interest in Jack was first reported by cbssportsline.com

Last season with the Indiana Pacers, Jack averaged 4.1 assists and a career-high 13.1 points-per-game while sharing point guard duties with former Raptor T.J. Ford.

At 6’3 it is believed Jack, a teammate of Chris Bosh at Georgia Tech, could also spend some time at shooting guard.

On June 30, the Pacers made a qualifying offer to Jack, making him a restricted free agent.

They would have seven days to match any offer sheet offered to the 25-year-old.

Leading up to the draft, Pacers president Larry Bird said he wanted to make Jack an offer but added he could become expendable.

The Pacers drafted Connecticut point guard A.J. Price.
