 TORONTO (AP) -The wait is over for Maceo Baston and the Toronto Raptors.
The Indiana Pacers declined to match the offer sheet given to Baston by the Raptors last week, so the 31-year-old restricted free agent can now report to Toronto for a physical and to sign the deal that is reportedly worth $3.8 million over two years.
``We're happy to get another piece falling into place,'' Raptors general manager Bryan Colangelo told The Canadian Press. ``We feel he should be another key ingredient in the mix we already have.''
The 6-foot-10, 230-pound forward averaged 2.9 points and 1.6 rebounds in 47 games with Indiana last season. He also played sparingly in 16 games with the Raptors during the 2002-03 season, averaging 2.6 points.
After that initial stint with Toronto, Baston found success overseas with Maccabi Tel Aviv, where he teamed with Raptors swingman Anthony Parker to help the team capture two Euroleague titles (2004 and '05) and three Israeli Premier League championships ('04-06).
The athletic forward averaged 14.5 points and 5.1 rebounds in his Premier League play with Maccabi and 13.2 points and 6.4 rebounds in Euroleague action.
