Cavs and Nets Reportedly Discussing Jarrett Jack-Jason Terry Swap

A pair of veteran guards could soon be on the move. Brooklyn and Cleveland are reportedly negotiating a potential trade involving Jarrett Jack and Jason Terry. Per ESPN:

The Nets (24-27) emerged from the All-Star break sitting 3½ games behind the Atlantic Division-leading Toronto Raptors and want to upgrade their bench and backcourt.

Jack, 30, is averaging just 8.5 points on 39.7 percent shooting in 25 minutes a game in his first season with the Cavs after a strong 2012-13 season with Golden State.

Sources said that the Nets, eager to add a proven ballhandler and backcourt scorer to their bench rotation, are willing to take on the two remaining guaranteed seasons worth in excess of $12 million left on Jack’s contract despite the luxury-tax implications.

But it’s believed that the Cavs, if they decided to go ahead with such a move, would try to find a third team to absorb Terry’s contract. Terry, 36, has one season left on his deal after this one at $5.85 million and is averaging just 4.5 points on 36.2 percent shooting in 16 minutes per game.

    Other than Terry’s below average stat line, these guys are actually very similar players, can play either back court position and similar 6th/7th man type roles….
