  • Jarrett Jack: Inks G League deal

    Jack has agreed to a contract with the G League's Sioux Falls Skyforce, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

  • Jarrett Jack: Will miss remainder of season

    Jack has been diagnosed with a torn ACL and a sprained MCL in his left knee and is set to undergo season-ending surgery April 1, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Jack recently latched on with the Skyforce, although his season will come to an early end following this unfortunate diagnosis. The 35-year-old will have a long road ahead of him after surgery, so it's unclear at this point whether he'll even choose to come back for another season of professional basketball.

  • Jarrett Jack: Waived by Pelicans

    Jack was waived by the Pelicans on Saturday, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.

    Jack signed a one-year, non-guaranteed contract with the Pelicans prior to training camp with the hopes of earning a depth role in their backcourt. The Journeyman failed to make a big enough impression to land on the final roster and will now be left looking for another destination. His most likely landing spot will be somewhere looking for veteran leadership at point guard.

  • Pelicans' Jarrett Jack: Signs non-guaranteed contract with Pelicans

    Jack will sign a one-year, non-guaranteed contract with the Pelicans, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Jack spent the 2017-18 campaign with the Knicks, where he played a surprisingly large role in the backcourt despite some intriguing younger pieces being present on the roster. He finished the year averaging 7.5 points, 5.6 assists and 3.1 rebounds across 25.0 minutes. He wasn't re-signed this offseason by New York and will instead travel to New Orleans to play for the Pelicans during the upcoming campaign. Jack will provide veteran leadership for a team looking to return to the playoffs, but he'll have a very tough time reaching the 25.0 minutes he averaged in New York if he makes the final roster. The Pelicans already have Elfrid Payton, Jrue Holiday, Ian Clark and Frank Jackson in the fold, all of whom should limit Jack's impact.

  • Knicks' Jarrett Jack: Bounce-back season

    Jack recorded 7.5 points, 5.6 assists and 3.1 rebounds across 62 games played with the Knicks during the 2017-18 season.

    Coming off an injury-prone year, Jack averaged 25 minutes per game in what was his 13th NBA season and provided decent stats off then bench for New York. At 33 years old, the former Georgia Tech star still has gas left in the tank and is set to become a free agent this summer.

  • Knicks' Jarrett Jack: Plays 26 minutes Saturday

    Jack registered 18 points (7-14 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), seven assists and five rebounds across 26 minutes in Saturday's 115-102 loss to the Bucks.

    After earning eight consecutive DNP-Coach's Decisions, Jack has now logged minutes in each of the past two games, with Saturday night's game being more meaningful time. Jack led the team in points off the bench with 18, but while the old veteran looked good, the Knicks will continue to use him sparingly as the team closes down the season.

  • Knicks' Jarrett Jack: Yet another DNP-Coach's Decision

    Jack did not see the floor during Wednesday's 118-101 loss to the 76ers.

    Jack has appeared in only one of the last 17 games, a March 17 win over the Hornets in which he had four points and one dime in seven minutes. With the team turning its attention to developing the younger players, Jack finds himself buried on the bench.

  • Knicks' Jarrett Jack: Likely bound for bench

    Jack is expected to move to the bench for Thursday's game against the Magic with Emmanuel Mudiay having replaced the veteran as the Knicks' first-team point guard during practice the past two days, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports.

    Jack was never viewed as a part of the Knicks' long-term plans and was signed to a one-year deal in the offseason to act as a placeholder in the starting five until rookie lottery pick Frank Ntilikina was ready to take over the top point-guard role. While Ntilikina's development on the offensive end has been slow, he'll still benefit from an uptick in minutes in the second half, but it's the 21-year-old Mudiay, a 2015 lottery pick who struggled with efficiency during his two-plus years with the Nuggets, who will get the first opportunity to replace Jack. It's expected that Mudiay and Ntilikina will handle nearly all the minutes at point guard going forward, meaning Jack could very well fall out of the rotation entirely. With averages of 7.7 points (on 42.4 percent shooting from the field), 5.9 assists and 3.2 rebounds in 26.0 minutes per game in his 56 starts this season, Jack didn't offer much fantasy value outside of very deep leagues.
