NBA: Cleveland Cavaliers Reach 4-Year, $25 M Deal with Jarrett Jack

Jul 8 2013, 1:22am CDT | by

The Cleveland Cavaliers have bolstered their backcourt by reaching a four-year, $25 million deal with journeyman guard Jarrett Jack.

The Cleveland Cavaliers reached an agreement with veteran journeyman guard Jarrett Jack on Saturday.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Jodie Valade writes the deal is for four years and valued at $25 million with a team option for the fourth year. Valade points out Jack became available when the Warriors renounced their rights to him on Friday to free up cap space to accommodate former Denver Nuggets small forward Andre Iguodala. Jack, who can play both guard positions, is expected to back up All-Star Kyrie Irving.

CBS Sports' Matt Moore confirmed Jack actually wanted to return to the Warriors, but the new development involving Iguodala lead hiim to a different path. 

Jack tweeted his reaction upon learning about the news

"Well it was fun while it lasted."

In a text message to ESPN, he said he is excited about the new opportunity.

"I'm excited to be a part of another journey."

When asked to comment by ESPN on his new role with the Cavaliers, he said he has no idea whether he'll come off the bench or not. 

"I have no idea."

Jack is considered to be one of the NBA's finest backup guards. His signing may pave the way for the Cavaliers releasing Shaun Livingston and Wayne Ellington, per Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal Online

Aside from the Warriors, he played previously for the Portland Trail Blazers, Indiana Pacers, Toronto Raptors and the then-New Orleans Hornets. Coming off a 2012-13 NBA season in which he averaged 12.9 points and 5.6 assists for Golden State, Jack will be playing for his sixth team when he suits up for Cleveland.

Renewed Deron Williams Is Brooklyn Nets' Best Path to Exceeding Expectations

Oct 30 2014 9:44am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

No matter how weak the Eastern Conference may be during the 2014-15 NBA season, the Brooklyn Nets are by no means guaranteed to lock up one of the eight postseason berths. But Deron Williams can change that, so long as he continues to look refreshed, rejuvenated and renewed. Heading into the campaign, opinions about how last year's No. 6 seed would fare tended to fall within shouting distance of one another. ESPN's summer fore ...

#SLAMTop50: Stephen Curry, no. 5

Oct 16 2014 11:00am CDT | Source: slamonline

The 2013 #SLAMTop50 found Stephen Curry barely cracking the top 10 thanks to Russell Westbrook undergoing off-season knee surgery. What a difference a year makes. Thanks to another stellar season of wet jumpers, sick handles, 50-plus wins, a FIBA chip and most importantly a healthy right ankle, Curry is a consensus top-five NBA player—at least according to folks around the SLAM Dome. The durability argument is out ...

Andre Iguodala has earned his reputation as one of the most versatile forwards in the NBA. He can do it all, from picking up the opponent's best player on defense, to improving his three-point shooting while playing alongside the Splash Bro ...
