Lionel Hollins said on Thursday that there are no guarantees that Jarrett Jack will be Brooklyn's starting point guard.
It would be strange if Jack fails to beat out Shane Larkin, Ryan Boatright and Donald Sloan for the starting point guard position in Brooklyn, but none-the-less, we'll be monitoring the position battle over the course of training camp and preseason. We still feel like Jack will prove to be victorious in this position battle, and he figures to make for a decent late-round selection after averaging 15.9 points, 6.6 assists, 3.8 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 3.3 turnovers through 27 starts last season.

Jarrett Jack said that he's ready to prove that he's a starting caliber point guard in the NBA.

"I've started in New Orleans," Jack said. "And I've had countless other times- I started in Toronto. I've started in a few places so we're just going to have to wait and see. Just answering questions is not going to show or prove anything on my behalf, so I'm just waiting until I can show and prove." Jack is projected to be the starting point guard for the Nets on opening night, and after averaging 15.9 points, 6.6 assists, 3.8 rebounds, 1.2 steals, 0.7 three-pointers and 3.3 turnovers through 27 games as a starter last season, he'll be worth a late-middle round selection on draft day.
Sep 1 - 6:01 PM

Thaddeus Young said he is confident that Jarrett Jack will do well as the starting point guard.

Jack has virtually no competition for the starting role, while Shane Larkin, Ryan Boatright and Donald Sloan will compete for backup PG duties. Jack averaged 15.9 points, 6.6 assists, 3.8 boards, 1.2 steals and 0.7 3-pointers in 27 starts last season, so that's a fair expectation with Deron Williams out of the picture. Jack isn't a household name by any means, so you should be able to grab him at the end of the middle rounds.

Jarrett Jack said that he is ready to take on a leadership role for the Nets.

"I’m always vocal whenever I think it’s necessary," Jack said. "Now with [the veterans] being gone, do I talk more or less? Who knows? It’s going to happen organically. I want to come out here and lead with my actions, showing I want to be a part of what we have going on." Jack will be starting at point guard on opening night, and he does have some appeal towards the end of the middle rounds after averaging 15.9 points, 6.6 assists, 3.8 boards, 1.2 steals and 0.7 3-pointers in 27 starts last season.

Brooklyn head coach Lionel Hollins said that Jarrett Jack can handle being the starting point guard for the Nets next season.

"Why can’t he? He’s done it last year, he’s done it in Portland, he’s done it in Golden State -- wherever he’s been, he’s had moments where he’s had to start," Hollins said. "And I think if a player is not starting [all the time], he gets a bad rap that he can’t be a starter. Well, that’s not the case. He’s been on teams with a lot of good starting point guards, and he’s done a great job of adding that depth that they have at point guard." Jack averaged 15.9 points, 6.6 assists, 3.8 boards, 1.2 steals and 0.7 3-pointers in 27 starts last season, so he will be an interesting pick towards the end of the middle rounds.

Jarrett Jack said that he's "very ready" to start at point guard for the Nets.

With Deron Williams' departure, Jack is the man in charge. "It’s not my first rodeo as far as being thrust into the (starter’s) role if that were to be the case," he said. Jack also revealed that D-Will thought he needed a change of scenery, a quote that will do nothing to turn down the noise that Williams couldn't handle New York. As for Jack, he's going to see plenty of playing time on a roster that has a lot of quantity but not much quality in the backcourt. Don't sleep on him in the middle rounds.
Jul 13 - 10:11 AM

Jarrett Jack is now the favorite to start at point guard for the Nets.

Deron Williams is gone, so Jack is the captain now. He is under contract for two more seasons and there is very little competition at point guard. In 27 starts last season, Jack averaged 15.9 points, 4.7 dimes, 0.9 steals and 0.7 treys. He's a later mid-round pick with so-so upside.
Jul 10 - 5:18 PM

The Brooklyn Nets are expected to explore a trade of Jarrett Jack, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.

Jack is due $12.6 million over the next two seasons with only partial guarantees for the 2016-17 season and the Nets will try to move Jack and his contract to free up some cap space, according to Stein. While Jack serves as a solid bench option no matter where he lands, he won't see enough minutes to warrant a roster spot in standard fantasy leagues unless injuries to a starter force him into a starting role.

May 26 - 11:43 AM

Jarrett Jack scored 11 points on 4-of-10 shooting with seven rebounds and five assists in 27 minutes off the bench in Friday's Game 6 loss.

Jack's production basically acts like empty calories at this stage in his career, as the defensive deficiencies and sporadic bad decision-making aren't offset by the good that he does when hot. He's under contract for $6.3 million next season.
May 1 - 11:12 PM

Jarrett Jack scored 18 points with four rebounds, six assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Hawks on Wednesday.

He scored 12 straight points for the Nets in the fourth and continues to play well when it counts. In his previous four fourth quarters, Jack made 57.1 percent from the field in 9.0 minutes per game. He's likely earned more playing time again on Friday.
Apr 29 - 9:41 PM

Jarrett Jack played down the stretch against the Hawks on Saturday, finishing with five points on 1-of-3 from the field, five boards, eight assists and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes.

Deron Williams was a shell of himself, so it was up to Jack to carry the load at point guard. He's playing with much more confidence than Deron and only taking three shots from the field is a positive for the Nets when other guys like Brook Lopez have been better options. Jack will likely come off the bench again in Game 4, but it wouldn't be a shock to see a change.
Apr 25 - 6:07 PM

Jarrett Jack made 9-of-13 from the field for 23 points against the Hawks on Wednesday with five rebounds, three assists, one steal, two 3-pointers and four turnovers.

It's the most points scored from a bench player all postseason and Jack almost helped the Nets pull of a major comeback. He was really struggling before today and usually the Deron Williams-Jack combo has been ineffective. We'll see if he can carry over some momentum into Game 3 on Saturday.
Apr 22 - 9:58 PM

Jarrett Jack turned things around on Friday against the Cavs, scoring 16 points on 6-of-13 shooting with four rebounds, five assists and two steals in 26 minutes off the bench.

Jack got the lion's share of the point guard minutes as Deron Williams (five points, five boards, five assists, five turnovers) logged just 22 minutes. Williams has had the upper hand for a few weeks now and the timeshare isn't doing either of them favors. Jack needs to do this again before we'll sanction anything but a flier if you need popcorn stats.
Mar 28 - 12:46 AM

Jarrett Jack hit just 1-of-9 shots (6-of-7 FTs) for eight points with two rebounds and one assist in 19 minutes off the bench on Monday.

Deron Williams flirted with a low-end triple-double tonight and clearly was the better player, while the Nets as a whole looked lethargic in a key playoff loss. Jack and Williams have been splitting minutes because Bojan Bogdanovic (3-of-14 FGs) has been hot, but as you can see he cooled off, as well. It wouldn't be surprising if Jack had a bounce-back effort at some point, but he's not a must-own player right now.
Mar 23 - 10:36 PM

Jarrett Jack played 24 minutes off the bench against the Pacers on Saturday with 13 points, eight assists and no turnovers.

He split the point guard minutes with Deron Williams even though Deron played well tonight. Jack doesn't really have a big upside in standard leagues with his lack of steals and treys, but he's someone to consider for those of you looking for some points, free throw shooting and dimes. That's about all he's good for.
