The Hawks and free agent Jarrett Jack have reportedly agreed to a one-year deal at the veteran's minimum.
Jack had right knee surgery in January to repair a torn ACL and meniscus, but he's hopeful to be ready for training camp. The injury is part of the reason Brooklyn couldn't trade him and eventually waived him, but if healthy he's a nice veteran addition behind Dennis Schroder at PG. Jul 10 - 8:22 PM

Date:

The Nets have officially waived Jarrett Jack.

It was the expected move for Brooklyn after they couldn't get anything for Jack on the trade market, and it'll be interesting to see if any teams claim him off the waiver wire. The most likely outcome will be Jack clearing waivers and then being free to sign with a team of his choosing. With Jack no longer on the roster, Caris LeVert and Isaiah Whitehead will get all the run they can handle, and both those guys are on the radar as potential late-round targets on draft day. Yogi Ferrell's odds of making the regular season roster have also improved significantly.

The Nets are reportedly expected to waive Jarrett Jack.

The Nets are going through a full rebuild, and after drafting two guards it doesn't make much sense to have Jack on the roster competing for minutes. Jack is coming off a torn right ACL and meniscus, but he should still command a fair amount of interest around the league once the big names come off the board. If Jack does indeed hit the waiver wire, both Caris LeVert and Isaiah Whitehead will see a nice boost in value.

The Nets are reportedly shopping Jarrett Jack.

The Nets have until June 30 to decide if they will pick up Jack's team option for the 2016-17 season, but Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical is reporting that they will waive him if they're unable to find a trade partner. Jack is 32 years old and played really well last season, but he's a bit of a gamble since he's coming off a torn right ACL and meniscus. That being said, he is reportedly on pace to be ready for training camp and should generate interest around the league if he's waived. If Jack leaves Brooklyn, Caris LeVert and Isaiah Whitehead could see a lot of action in their rookie seasons.
Jun 28 - 7:41 PM

The Nets are unsure if they will pick up Jarrett Jack's (knee) team option.

The Nets have until June 30 to make the call. If they don't pick it up, they would only owe Jack his $500K guarantee. He could also be an interesting trade chip. The Nets picked up Isaiah Whitehead, so he would have a huge opportunity in front of him sans Jack.

Jarrett Jack (knee) was running without a knee brace on Wednesday.

He posted a video of himself running on a beach volleyball court. We haven't seen many updates on Jack since his surgery back in January, but he was expected to start basketball activity this month. He will likely be limited in training camp and should have a minutes cap to start the season.
Jun 8 - 5:40 PM

Jarrett Jack (knee surgery) is expected to be cleared for basketball activities in about a month and a half.

He was diagnosed with a torn right ACL and meniscus back in January, but initial reports indicated that he will be ready for the 2016-17 season. The Nets hold a team option on him worth $6.3 million, and he could be a starter again next season unless they bring in another point guard this summer. He averaged 12.8 points, 7.4 assists, 4.3 boards, 1.1 steals and 1.0 3-pointers in 32 games during the 2015-16 campaign.
Apr 30 - 9:16 AM

Jarrett Jack had successful surgery on his right knee on Wednesday morning.

He has a torn right ACL and meniscus, but he is expected to be ready for the 2016-17 season. Jack has a $6.3 million contract option for next season, but it isn't guaranteed. For now, the Nets will move forward with Donald Sloan and Shane Larkin at point guard.
Jan 13 - 12:24 PM

Jarrett Jack has ben diagnosed with a torn right ACL as well as a torn right meniscus, and he will miss the remainder of the season.

A date for surgery has yet to be determined. It's awful news for Jack, and it confirms what many feared when he initially went down vs. Boston on Saturday when he was hurt on a non-contact play. Shane Larkin was worth a speculative addition as soon as Jack went down, and he should be added everywhere now that he's locked into a major role. Donald Sloan will also have to play more, while Wayne Ellington should get some additional run, as well. It's not a pretty picture, and the Nets may very well explore their options (Tony Wroten?) at the position. Jack's contract option for next season is non-guaranteed.

Jarrett Jack said that he has "never felt pain like that before" in regards to the knee injury he suffered on Saturday vs. the Celtics.

"I had never felt pain like that before, so I knew it was something," Jack said on Saturday. "I'm going to try to stay positive and try not to speculate. I'm still optimistic, still hoping for the best, and tomorrow we'll find out what the future may hold." Jack will undergo an MRI on Sunday, so we should know the extent of his injury later this afternoon. It could be a potentially serious injury, so Shane Larkin needs to be picked up everywhere.
Jan 3 - 10:57 AM

Jarrett Jack will have an MRI on his right knee on Sunday.

His knee buckled on a drive to the hoop without any contact, so this is very concerning. Additionally, he couldn't put any weight on his leg on the way back to the locker room. Shane Larkin wasn't great down the stretch in this one, but he is worth a speculative add everywhere. Jack's owners should sit tight for now until the Nets update his status on Sunday. For what it's worth, Jack was walking gingerly in the locker room without crutches (the Nets made him use them later on) and appeared to be in good spirits.
Jan 2 - 5:50 PM

Jarrett Jack hurt his right knee on a non-contact play on Saturday.

Not good. His right leg gave out on him and he couldn't put any weight on his way to the locker room. There's a decent chance Jack will be looking at an extended absence here, so grabbing Shane Larkin speculatively isn't a bad idea for owners needing a point guard. The Nets should have an update after the game.
Jan 2 - 4:48 PM

Lionel Hollins said that he will go with his usual starters of Jarrett Jack, Bojan Bogdanovic, Joe Johnson, Thaddeus Young and Brook Lopez for Wednesday's game vs. the Magic.

Jack was benched to start the second-half of Monday's win over Miami in favor of Shane Larkin, but Jack still played down the stretch and Hollins said after the game that he contemplated benching his entire starting five. Jarrett's role as a starter in Brooklyn is safe for now, and Larkin isn't much more than a low-end asset in deep leagues while he's coming off the bench.

Jarrett Jack scored 18 points with six assists, four boards, two steals and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes vs. the Heat on Monday.

He was benched at the start of the second half in favor of Shane Larkin (eight points, seven assists), but coach Lionel Hollins said he considered benching the entire starting five. Jack still played down the stretch, so his starting spot should be safe moving forward.

Jarrett Jack scored 15 points with two rebounds, 11 assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday.

Jack was really struggling before this one with three bad games in a row. Still, he's had a decent run in December, averaging 12.0 points, 4.5 boards, 7.3 dimes, 1.4 steals and 0.8 treys in his previous December games. He's still only made 38 percent from the field this month, which explains why he's only put up seventh-round value in December.
