Waived by Pelicans
GFree Agent
October 13, 2018
Jack was waived by the Pelicans on Saturday, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
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.

Jack was tasked with running the show for a rebuilding Nets squad in 2015-16, one of the few times in his career that he's been anointed a starter to begin a season. With averages of 12.8 points, 7.4 assists, 4.3 rebounds, 1.1 steals and 1.0 three-pointer across 32.1 minutes per game, Jack was a useful source of counting stats during his time on the court, albeit with poor percentages from the field and three-point range. Unfortunately, his season came to an abrupt end Jan. 2, when Jack suffered a torn ACL that required surgery. Though Jack could have been retained at an affordable $6 million for 2016-17, the Nets weren't willing to take a gamble on a 33-year-old coming off a major injury and chose to waive him before his contract became guaranteed for 2016-17. Jack would eventually find a home in Atlanta, where he starred during college at Georgia Tech, on a one-year deal. Now on his eighth team in 12 seasons, Jack will head back into a familiar backup role at point guard behind newly-anointed starter Dennis Schroder, who replaces the since-departed Jeff Teague. It's expected that Jack will be back to full health early in the upcoming season if not during training camp, and though he probably won't be counted on to play much more than 18-to-24 minutes per game, he'll provide an important mentorship role for the 23-year-old Schroder more so than many notable on-court contributions.
In his second season with the Nets, Jack has moved himself into the starting lineup, replacing Deron Williams, whose contract was bought out by the Nets so that he could sign with the Mavericks. Jack played in 80 games last season, starting 27 of them. His season averages were 12.0 points, 3.1 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 0.9 steals, and 0.5 three-pointers in 28 minutes per game. Jack has been a consistent player throughout his 10-year NBA career. However, he is not an overly attractive fantasy player. Though he doesn't hurt you in any specific category, Jack's role as the starter seems like a temp-job. Once the team finds their point guard of the future, Jack should find himself back in a bench role on the Nets or another team. Last season, he shot 44 percent from the field, 88 percent from the free-throw line, and 27 percent from three-point land. He's a strong leader who has earned coach Lionel Hollin's confidence enough for him to hand over the keys to run the team. Jack should have plenty of minutes this upcoming season because there is not a proven backup to take away playing time. Until the Nets make a change, Jack should be a nice value pick in the mid-to-late rounds of drafts.
Jack was traded from the Cavaliers to the Nets in July to help facilitate the signing of LeBron James. The Cavs sent Jack and Sergey Karasev to Brooklyn, clearing nearly $8 million in cap space in the process. Jack, who will join his fifth team in as many seasons, saw his production tail off last season after two solid years with the Pelicans (then Hornets) and Warriors, respectively. While the decline in quality of his supporting cast was at least partially to blame, Jack simply was not the offensive spark off the bench that he had been in the previous two seasons. In 28 minutes across 80 games for the Cavs last season, Jack averaged 9.5 points, 4.1 assists and 2.8 rebounds while shooting 41 percent from the field. As member of the Warriors in 2012-13, Jack posed 12.9 points, 5.6 assists and 3.1 rebounds while knocking down 45 percent of his field goals and 40 percent of his threes. His PER (player efficiency rating) dropped more than points, and his assist percentage fell from 29.9 in 2012-13 to 22.7 last season. Under coach Lionel Hollins, Jack will look to return to his 2011-13 form. He figures to earn plenty of minutes backing up Joe Johnson and the oft-injured Deron Williams while battling Alan Anderson for additional playing time.
After playing for four teams in his first seven years in the league, Jack found himself in his role with the Warriors last season. He came off the bench to support the young backcourt of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. Jack should reprise that role with the Cavaliers. He'll allow Irving to play off the ball more and give the team a veteran point guard to run the show when Irving is resting. Jack may not top his 2012-13 averages of 12.9 points and 5.6 assists, but he will be a useful player who can be drafted in the mid to late rounds.
Jack, coming off his most productive NBA season, will serve as a veteran backup to protect against a Stephen Curry injury. Though more of a combo guard, Jack will primarily play the point this season. To state the obvious, Jack becomes much more valuable if Curry gets hurt. Any prepared fantasy owner knows which starters have injury histories and Curry is one of them.
As the new starting point guard for the Hornets, Jack should contribute and improve solidly in points and assists from last season, in which he averaged 8.9 points and 2.9 assists per game. If Jack can find a consistent shooting stroke and improve on his 40.9 percent shooting, he should be a suitable starting guard. Jack has long been considered more of a backup than a true starting point guard, so if the Hornets do not make a move on another point guard, the pressure on Jack to succeed will increase exponentially.
Jack will split time with Jose Calderon at the point as long as the two of them remain on the Raptors together. Calderon missed a stretch of 12 games during December and January last year that allowed Jack to run the team as the lone starting point guard. In those 12 games, Jack averaged 12.6 points, 3.4 rebounds, 6.0 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.9 three-pointers in 33.4 minutes per game while shooting 51.9 percent from the field. If Calderon gets shipped out of town, those are the kind of stats Jack should be expected to put up.
A big point guard with the size and ability to shift to the two, Jack should be an excellent fit in Toronto this season as the third guard in Jay Triano’s rotation and backup to both Jose Calderon and rookie DeMar Derozan. He’s not a big-time scorer, but is a capable shooter (45.3 percent shooting from the floor last season, 35.3 percent from three) who will keep defenses honest and an 85-percent free throw shooter. With sufficient playing time he’s capable of generating useful assist totals – he averaged over five per game for Portland in 2006-07 – but his role in Toronto probably won’t allow for that, unless Calderon gets hurt.
The Pacers acquired Jack from Portland in a Draft Day trade that also included Ike Diogu and a swap of first-round picks Brandon Rush and Jerryd Bayless. He'll compete with T.J. Ford for the starting point-guard job, though coach Jim O'Brien has suggested that Jack will also see some time at shooting guard. Jack is a little bigger than Ford and a better outside shooter, though Ford is quicker and tends to end up with more assists and steals. Both might sit occasionally when O'Brien decides to go big and installs Marquis Daniels at the point.
Jack was fairly consistent for the Trail Blazers last season when thrust into a leadership role on a young team. However, if you watched the Blazers closely, you realized that he had the look of a placeholder. First, we saw Brandon Roy initiating more offense as he grew accustomed to NBA life. Second, backup Sergio Rodriguez was very good in limited minutes. And now comes the addition of free agent Steve Blake, a high assist to turnover guy who has improved his outside shot. All that spells doom for Jack’s fantasy value while in Portland. This could be the final year of his contract (the team has an option after this season), so there’s a good chance he gets traded before the year is out. Depending on the destination, presumably his value could increase.
Was drafted in the first round (22nd overall) by the Nuggets and then traded to the Blazers for the rights to Linas Kleinza and Ricky Sanchez. Is a tough player with a good jump shot. Has a question of turnovers coming out of Georgia Tech. Could battle Sebastian Telfair for playing time.
