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.

Kyrie Irving leads the Cleveland Cavaliers' point guard attack into the 2014-15 season, but who will be around to back him up? Irving's abilities are well-documented. After three years in the league and a recent breakout at the FIBA Basketball World Cup, we've got a good idea of what Irving brings to the table. While that's nice and all, who's going to provide him with some relief during games or—heaven forbid—if Irving continue ...

What Brooklyn Nets Need from Joe Johnson Next Season

Sep 14 2014 7:36am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

A year ago, it was championship or bust. This season, a playoff berth should satiate Brooklyn Nets fans. But with Deron Williams and his questionable ankles a year older, a new leader must emerge.  That's where Joe Johnson steps in.    Leadership Williams may not be able to lead by example like he once did. His ankles have become brittle, and the explosiveness that once made D-Will a top-three point guard is no longer present.  Johnson did well last season as ...

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 three seasons. However, the postseason result ...

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 takes over for th ...
