TORONTO (AP) -The Toronto Raptors signed Jason Kapono on Wednesday and are trying to add Maceo Baston.
Toronto signed the Indiana Pacers' restricted free agent forward to an offer sheet, and the Pacers have seven days to match the offer or Baston would return to the Raptors.
The 6-foot-10, 230-pounder averaged 2.9 points and 1.6 rebounds in 47 games with Indiana last season. He also played 16 games with the Raptors in 2002-03, averaging 2.6 points.
Baston achieved his greatest success overseas with Maccabi Tel Aviv, where he teamed with Raptors swingman Anthony Parker to help the team capture Euroleague titles in 2004 and '05 and three Israeli Premier League championships (2004-06).
He averaged 14.5 points and 5.1 rebounds in Premier League play with Maccabi and 13.2 points and 6.4 boards in Euroleague action.
Kapono agreed to a multiyear deal with the Raptors on July 1, the first day of free agency. Deals couldn't become official until the league's moratorium period ended Wednesday.
``Jason is an ideal fit for our system and for our locker room,'' general manager Bryan Colangelo said in a statement. ``We anticipate he will contribute significantly to our team in a variety of ways.
Kapono averaged 10.9 points and 2.7 rebounds with the Miami Heat last season and is best known for his 3-point shooting. The 26-year-old forward shot an NBA-best 51.4 percent from behind the arc last season, fourth-best in league history.
Kapono also won the 3-point shooting competition during All-Star weekend in Las Vegas.
Financial terms were not released, though Kapono was expected to sign for the full mid-level exception, which was set Tuesday at $5.36 million per season.
