Raptors Agree To Deal With Josh Jackson

The Raptors have signed forward/guard Josh Jackson, the team announced in a press release.<a rel=Josh Jackson” width=”300″ height=”169″>

Terms of the deal have yet to be reported, but given that it’s this late into free agency, Jackson is likely receiving a non-guaranteed or partially guaranteed deal.

Jackson, 25, is 6-foot-8 and was originally drafted by the Suns with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.

He appeared in 51 total games last season — 39 with the Pistons and another 12 with the Kings — and compiled averages of 6.4 points and 2.8 rebounds. He has also spent time with the Grizzlies and Pistons.

Jackson will wear No. 55 with the Raptors, and could potentially serve as a third small forward between OG Anunoby and Otto Porter Jr., another new acquisition.
