It appears that Jarrett Jack, who was cut by the Hawks in October, is nearing a return from the knee injury that derailed his otherwise solid 2015/16 campaign with the Nets. According to Marc Stein of ESPN, the soon-to-be healthy veteran will “hold an open audition” so that NBA teams can see him play.
After averaging 12.8 points and 7.4 assists per game as the primary point guard in Brooklyn, Jack suffered a torn ACL in January and was ultimately cut by the club. Last June, the Georgia Tech alum signed on to play in Atlanta, but was cut again when the injury lingered into preseason.
At 33, Jack is a solid veteran capable of contributing to team’s seeking point guard help down the stretch. He won’t be the only veteran looking for a new club, however, as Stein reminds his Twitter followers that Mario Chalmers will be seeking a return to the court in 2017 as well.
In October, the Cavaliers – a team frequently said to be seeking point guard help – had only a “passing interest” in the veteran.
