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.

What the Los Angeles Clippers Need from Chris Paul Next Season

Aug 26 2014 1:14am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Arguably the top point guard in the entire league, Chris Paul has helped transform the Los Angeles Clippers into one of the league’s elite teams. While Paul has been nothing short of awesome, Doc Rivers needs a more unique version of the elite point guard. Especially if the Clippers are to reach the franchise’s first conference finals. Make no mistake, Paul’s talents are a major reason for the Clippers’ turnaround over the past th ...

Can Jarrett Jack Fill Shaun Livingston's Place in the Brooklyn Nets' Rotation?

Aug 18 2014 1:48am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

How much does one bad season matter? Jarrett Jack would like to know the answer to that question. Jack, who put up the worst numbers of his career for the Cleveland Cavaliers last year, eventually went to the Brooklyn Nets this offseason in a deal the Cavs used to create cap space for the LeBron James signing. After just one underwhelming season in Cleveland, Jack's days in wine and gold were over. The 10-year vet now ta ...

Deron Williams or Brook Lopez: Whose Health Is More Critical to Brooklyn Nets?

Jul 29 2014 12:43am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

There was a time in which Deron Williams and Brook Lopez were viewed as one of the NBA's top duos. But instead of playoff runs and perennial All-Star appearances, both of them have become staples on the Brooklyn Nets’ sidelines in recent years. Combined, the two missed 83 games last season. While Williams was in and out of the lineup with recurring ankle issues, Lopez was nursing a broken foot after just 17 contests. When healthy, ...

Are NY Knicks or Brooklyn Nets Better Playoff Locks for Next Season?

Jul 28 2014 3:36am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

It's the rivalry that was thrust at us in 2012 when New York City was granted its second NBA franchise. It's been talked up by players from both sides, but to this point, the highest level of competition between the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets has been in the press.  Both teams qualified for the playoffs in 2012-13, and split their four contests in environments that could be described as lukewarm at best. Last season, both teams were major disappo ...
