Hawks Sign Jarrett Jack

JULY 10: Free agent point guard Jarrett Jack has agreed to a one-year deal with the Hawks, tweets Shams Charania of The Vertical. The contract is for the league minimum.

The 32-year-old Jack had his season cut short when he suffered a torn ACL in January. Before the injury, he appeared in 32 games for the Nets, all starts, and averaged 12.8 points and 7.4 assists. Brooklyn waived Jack at the end of June after unsuccessfully trying to find a trading partner. He was scheduled to make $6.3MM next season, but only $500K of that was guaranteed if he was cut before July.

Jack will probably back up Dennis Schroder in Atlanta. The Hawks needed point guard depth after trading Jeff Teague to the Pacers.

Jack said his rehab from the torn ACL is going “very well,” tweets Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

This is the signing the Hawks fans wanted. And it’s a good one too.

Loved watching him play with Golden State. ACL injury is concerning, but he’s a great scorer and playmaker when healthy. Great signing by Atlanta.

Delaney evidently was told the back-up PG job would be his to lose. I wouldn’t be quite so quick to assume an older player coming off an ACL injury is even going to make the team, let alone that he should be penciled-in as the #2 PG.

Pangos looks very good. I’d keep this kid for his shooting, playmaking and his youth. He’ll only get better.
