It didn't take long for the Toronto Raptors to set their sights on a replacement for John Salmons.

According to a report in the Toronto Sun, the Raptors are closing in on a deal with shooting guard Fred Jones.

Jones, who won the 2004 slam dunk contest, averaged 9.7 points per game for the Indiana Pacers last season.  Though he is a fantastic athlete, he is a suspect shooter.  Jones has a career shooting percentages of 41.5% from the field and 35.0% from three-point range.

Because Jones is a restricted free agent, the Pacers have the right to match any offer he receives.
