Veteran free agent Mickael Pietrus will sign a one-year deal with the Toronto Raptors, USA Today's Sam Amick reported on Thursday.

Mutual interest from both Pietrus and the Raptors had been building. The Los Angeles Lakers had also reportedly been interested in Pietrus, who had declined to accept a minimum-salary offer from other teams.

Pietrus played last season in Boston with the Celtics, where he averaged 6.9 points and 3.1 rebounds per game. He is a career 35.7 percent shooter from 3-point range, so he should help a Toronto offense that ranks just 19th in 3-point shooting.

At just 3-13, the Raptors are already eight games back of Atlantic Division-leading Brooklyn and New York.
