Raps get Jacked up



Bryan Colangelo’s attempt to make this year’s Raptors team better than last season’s trainwreck took another step yesterday, as the Pacers declined to match Toronto’s offer sheet to Jarrett Jack. Jack, who can play both the one and two, was actually a freshman teammate of Chris Bosh at Georgia Tech, where Bosh left after one year. A sign of things to come? Yeah, probably.

Jack is a good addition — he’ll get minutes backing up Jose Calderon and should see plenty of time at the two, where he’ll help ease DeMar DeRozan’s transition to the league. Jack averaged a career-high 13.1 points per game in Indiana last season, his only season there after spending his first three with Portland. The deal is reportedly worth $20 million over four years.
