Jarrett Jack Signs 1-Year Deal With Atlanta

by July 11, 2016

The Atlanta Hawks have come to terms with free agent guard Jarrett Jack on a one-year contract for the veteran’s minimum.

Jack, 32, averaged had averages of 12.8 points, 7.4 assists and 4.3 rebounds in 32.1 minutes for the Brooklyn Nets, but a knee injury limited him to just 32 games.

The veteran’s rehab from a torn ACL is said to be going “very well.”

Per the AJC:

Jack, who played at Georgia Tech, most recently was with the Nets before a torn ACL ended his campaign in January of last season. The Nets waived the 6-foot-3 point guard and his $6.3 million contract last month making him an unrestricted free agent.

 

After the Hawks traded Jeff Teague, (Dennis) Schroder was the only point guard on the roster. The Hawks signed Malcolm Delaney, who has spent all five of his professional seasons overseas, to a two-year, $1.4 million contract earlier this month.

 

The Hawks are expected to be patient in Jack’s return and will give him the necessary time to return to 100 percent. […] Jack is a 12-year veteran. He has played for the Trail Blazers, Pacers, Raptors, Hornets, Warriors, Cavs and Nets. He has career averages of 11.1 points, 4.5 assists and 2.9 rebounds in 803 career games.
