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.

2014 All Sports United Humanitarian Award

And with it, came LeBron James' decision to fundamentally shake the core of the NBA again by returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The superstar announced the decision via an exclusive with Lee Jenkins of Sports Illustrated: Before anyone ever cared where I would play basketball, I was a ...

NBL MVP Awards Night
Just over two minutes remained in the first half against the Brooklyn Nets in Orlando on Sunday. Miami Heat rookie Shabazz Napier grabbed a defensive rebound, immediately looked up court and took one dribble before spotting James Ennis streaking down the right-hand side of the floor. Napier’s nifty, two-handed bounce pass from above his head found Ennis in stride and the swingman only needed one dribble to throw down a vicious one-handed, tomahawk jam. Ennis hung 2 ...
