The Toronto Raptors search for a backup point guard may be complete.

The Raptors have reportedly offered the role to Dwight Buycks and he has elected to accept the job, according to Darnell Mayberry of the Oklahoman.

The two sides have a deal in place pending a physical, according to Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun.

Buycks played for the Thunder’s Summer League team in Orlando and was said to be under consideration for a spot on Oklahoma City’s roster.

The Marquette grad spent the 2011-12 season playing for Tulsa in the D-League which earned him an eight-day tryout with the Phoenix Suns that season. He did not get a chance to play and eventually moved on to France.

The 24-year-old was MVP of the French league after averaging 17 points and three assists per game for BCM Gravelines. The scoring total was the league’s second best.
