Coach Lionel Hollins said he's "sure" he will play Jarrett Jack and Deron Williams together.
This isn't a surprise at all and Jack may get some run as the point guard with Deron off the ball. Jack hasn't been great in the past couple seasons on the whole, but he could get enough run with the Nets to produce low-end value in standard leagues. Sep 13 - 11:20 AM

Jarrett Jack spoke about his potential role with the Brooklyn Nets during his introductory press conference on Thursday.

"I can relieve Deron of the ball handling responsibilities and create opportunities for myself and my teammates," Jack said. He also spoke on his down year in Cleveland, and the reasons why his production slipped, "I was more of a facilitator than I was accustomed to being in Cleveland." Jack may have some fantasy value as a sixth man or starting shooting guard in a small-ball lineup, but he shouldn't be drafted before the mid rounds in most leagues.

The Nets are on the verge of acquiring Cavaliers guard Jarrett Jack in a three-team trade, with Marcus Thornton and Tyler Zeller going to the Celtics.

The Nets will also acquire F Sergey Karasev from Cleveland, and Boston will pick up a first-round draft pick for helping to facilitate the deal. The Cavs' incentive is ridding themselves of Jack's remaining $12.6 million over two years, giving them the necessary salary-cap space for a max offer to LeBron James. They'll also get a second-round pick from Boston. Jack may start at shooting guard if the Nets opt to use a small lineup again next season, or he may backup both PG and SG as a primary reserve. The 30-year-old veteran is coming off a down season in Cleveland and the change of scenery should do him good.
Jul 9 - 10:27 AM

The Cavaliers reportedly hope to trade Jarrett Jack to the Nets in an effort clear salary-cap space in their pursuit of LeBron James.

Jack will earn a guaranteed $12.6 million over the next two seasons, with a $6.3 million team option in the third and final year of his contract. The Nets may be interested in acquiring him if they can ship Marcus Thornton to another club in the bargain, which is ironic since former coach Jason Kidd was bitter about the Nets' trade for Thornton instead of Jack last season. No trade is imminent but it's worth mentioning that Jack is on the block.
Jul 6 - 10:59 PM

The Nets and Cavs are discussing a trade involving Jarrett Jack for Marcus Thornton.

Jack had an up-and-down year with the Cavs last year, but they are really going to need to get another backup point guard considering how often Kyrie Irving is injured. Jack would become a backup behind another oft-injured point guard in Deron Williams.
Jun 21 - 3:37 PM

Jarrett Jack scored 21 points on 7-of-13 shooting with two threes, four rebounds, two assists, one steal and 5-of-5 hits from the foul line on Friday against the Bucks.

Jack logged 34 minutes off the bench and depending on whether or not Kyrie Irving is truly healthy after returning from a biceps injury, he could see more run than would be expected for an aging player on a team out of contention. Matthew Dellavedova (four points, four assists, 25 minutes) could also see some run, but he's more of a guy to watch than pick up right now.
Apr 12 - 1:48 AM

Jarrett Jack came off the bench Wednesday for 13 points, four rebounds and four assists in 30 minutes.

In a twist off previous strategy, the Cavs chose to start Dion Waiters at shooting guard with Kyrie Irving (biceps) healthy. Jack gave owners plenty of value in this one, but his minute count was aided by a 23-point halftime lead and Irving coasting to just 28 minutes. On most nights, Jack will hover around 25-27 minutes as a third guard. Owners should be able to do better by streaming down the stretch.
Apr 2 - 9:26 PM

Jarrett Jack will move back to the bench on Wednesday vs. the Magic with Kyrie Irving (biceps) returning.

The Cavs have used him at shooting guard, but Dion Waiters has played well enough to keep his starting distinction. Jack should have already been cut in most fantasy formats.
Apr 2 - 5:51 PM

Jarrett Jack played 36 minutes during a surprising blowout 90-76 win over the Pacers, scoring 11 points with six boards, nine assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

This could be his last hurrah with Kyrie Irving (biceps) targeting a return on Tuesday, which is not a guarantee. Regardless, the Cavs have a horrible schedule this week with games on a 13-game Wednesday, a 14-game Friday and a six-game Saturday. Jack is a player to consider cutting if he's on the bottom third of your roster with respect how much you value him.
Mar 30 - 6:46 PM

Jarrett Jack struggled on Wednesday, but turned it on late to finish with 17 points, two 3-pointers and one assist on 7-of-15 shooting.

Jack kept it going tonight, as the Cavs made a furious comeback and scored the game's final 10 points for the unlikely win, after entering the fourth quarter in a 82-66 hole. Jack should be in most lineups the rest of the way, as it's hard to imagine Kyrie Irving playing again this season.
Mar 26 - 11:29 PM

Jarrett Jack followed up Sunday's 31-point eruption with 13 points, five rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block as the Cavs defeated the visiting Raptors on Tuesday.

The veteran made 6-of-9 field goals and only turned the ball over once in 37 minutes. He's found his groove, to say the least, and remains a great rest-of-season option with Kyrie Irving (bicep) questionable to return.
Mar 25 - 9:58 PM

Jarrett Jack tore up the Knicks' defense during Sunday's road win, scoring a season-high 31 points on 13-of-19 shooting with one 3-pointer, five rebounds and 10 assists.

All it took was a date with the Knicks' defense for Jack to find his groove, particularly in the pick-and-roll, and he's an intriguing fantasy option given his unquestioned starting PG role and the Cavs' nice four-game schedule this week. Better yet, those games come against a group of up-tempo teams in the Lakers, Kings, Suns and Warriors. Kyrie Irving (strained bicep) will be re-evaluated in one week and his potential return date is unknown.
Mar 23 - 10:36 PM

Jarrett Jack scored just 11 points during Saturday's 118-111 loss to the Rockets to go with four boards, six assists and one block in 36 minutes.

The minutes, dimes and somewhat low turnovers have been there, but the points haven't quite come around since his 22-point explosion on Tuesday. Jack should be fine and he'll get a better matchup than Pat Beverley against the Knicks on Sunday.
Mar 22 - 10:33 PM

Jarrett Jack's second consecutive start at point guard did not go well on Thursday vs. the Thunder with six points, three boards, four assists, one steal and two turnovers in 34 minutes.

He really had nowhere to go but down from his 22-point game on Tuesday and he'll have more sub-par games on the way thanks to shooting just 40.3 percent from the field this season. Jack is still going to be very helpful on the stat sheet in points, assists, steals and treys, so he's worth owning in all standard leagues.
Mar 20 - 10:09 PM

Jarrett Jack hit 8-of-13 shots and four 3-pointers for 22 points, four rebounds, four assists and a block in Tuesday's loss to the Heat.

We've been saying that Jack would be a good player to own if his shot would ever fall and that was the case tonight. And with Kyrie Irving likely done for the rest of the season, Jack looks like a good player to own in all leagues right now.
