Jack A Raptor ( Sorry For The Late News )

Jarrett Jack told the Indianapolis Star on Sunday night that the Pacers aren't going to match the offer sheet he signed with the Raptors.

Jack signed a four-year, $20 million offer sheet with Toronto last Monday.

"It took a minute, but I was able to secure a contract for four years," Jack told the Indy Star. "I'm looking forward to playing with Chris (Bosh) again. It will be like our freshman year (at Georgia Tech) all over again."

The Pacers had until Monday to officially make a decision on whether or not to match the offer. The move isn't surprising, because matching the offer would have put Indiana over the NBA's $69.9 million luxury tax threshold.

"I wanted to be a Pacer come next season," Jack said. "I'm indebted to coach (Jim) O'Brien for what he did for me last season. Not only him, but also (team president) Larry Bird and (general manager) David Morway. They put me in the position to play well and get a long-term contract. I'll always be indebted to them."

Haha

Chill Chill, it's all good. This happened earlier too. No biggie, since that forum is off the main page maybe some people didn't see it and now see it. It doesn't hurt to repost something already stated if it's like a Signing or a Rumor.

Not a problem, as a Raps fan

Not a problem, as a Raps fan every time I get to bask in a victory I am elated! This conversation was funny though, would have thought it was like Saturday at 3am or something ...

As for the topic. Jack will bring so much to the raps. Perrimeter D, toughness, a backup pg, a buddy for Bosh, shot creating ability, support for Calderone, and he has no serious weaknesses. Great news.
