It is widely assumed the Nets will explore the trade markets for both Joe Johnson (with his expiring $24.9 million deal) and Jarrett Jack (due $12.6 million over the next two seasons but only partially guaranteed in 2016-17) to try to get away from tax territory that way, instead of waiving and stretching Williams. Neither of those ideas is as complicated as trying to trade D-Will himself, with $21 million next season and $22.3 million in 2016-17 owed to the 30-year-old, but you wouldn’t describe trading Johnson or Jack for purely financial motivations as easy, either.
“The leader I learned from the most? Probably Jarrett Jack has a big influence when he was here.” NBA TV’s Game Time replayed the clip with Jack sitting on the dias. He seemed a bit surprised, then explained what he had done when he and Jack played at Golden State two years ago. “That’s tough, man,” Jack said. “Real humbling. “I would always just stay in his ear … Steph’s a quiet kid, not a boisterous kid by nature … Just telling him ‘it’s paramount that your voice is heard, on a day-by-day basis.
Alex Kennedy: The Detroit Pistons continue to shop for a point guard. Norris Cole and Jarrett Jack are two names that have come up.
Chris Mannix: Pistons aggressively pursuing guard help. Jarrett Jack, Norris Cole among the playmakers SVG is looking at, per league sources.
Brian Windhorst: One of the options for the Nets with Jarrett Jack involves him being sent to Detroit, sources said.
Adrian Wojnarowski: As part of broader deal, Nets could send Jarrett Jack to Wizards and Kevin Garnett to Minnesota, league source tells Yahoo Sports.
Ken Berger: Lots of moving parts in OKC-Nets talks. Brooklyn needs to include Jarrett Jack in deal, source says, and still would have backcourt logjam.
The Nets are prepared to move guard Jarrett Jack in a deal, clearing the way for Jackson to become the starter and a franchise cornerstone, league sources said. Deron Williams would continue to be used in a reserve role for the Nets.
The original deal would have sent Stephenson to Brooklyn, Nets center Brook Lopez to the Oklahoma City Thunder and various Nets and Thunder players – possibly point guard Jarrett Jack and shooting guard Jeremy Lamb – to the Hornets. A knowledgeable source told the Observer Friday morning that the deal was dormant, if not dead. The Nets pulled away from negotiations and are now exploring other options to move Lopez’s contract.
A person with knowledge of the situation confirmed that the Thunder, Brooklyn Nets and Charlotte Hornets are discussing a deal that would send Nets center Brook Lopez to the Thunder, Hornets guard Lance Stephenson to his hometown Nets and the Thunder’s Jeremy Lamb and the Nets’ Jarrett Jack to the Hornets. If the deal remains in its current form, the person told USA TODAY Sports that Thunder center Kendrick Perkins likely would go to the Nets as well. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the private nature of trade talks.
David Aldridge: Re: proposed three-team trade talk reported by ESPN between Brooklyn, Charlotte & OKC (Brook Lopez to OKC, Jarrett Jack and Jeremy Lamb to Charlotte, Lance Stephenson to Nets): nothing imminent. Nets have many potential deals on the table and haven’t made any decisions on which way they’ll go.
After losing 103-92 to Memphis inside Barclays Center, the Nets are still striving for it. They saw their losing streak climb to a season-high seven games and their advantage over the pack of teams trailing them for the eighth playoff spot remain at a game-and-a-half heading into Friday’s beginning of a home-and-home with the Wizards in Washington. “I know for me, personally, it’s tough to deal with,” said Jarrett Jack, who went 4-for-12 and finished with 10 points. “You try to look at the next opportunity you have to walk between the lines and try to turn everything around. “That’s the only way to look at it. Just trying to look forward to Friday, and go out there and put out a complete 48-minute game and try to get a [win].”
Mannix said that the Nets were looking to “make some kind of move,” then mentioning, however, that the team does want to stay in playoff contention this season. He also goes on to applaud coach Lionel Hollins for benching both Deron Williams and Brook Lopez, in favor of Jarrett Jack and Mason Plumlee, respectively.
More than nine years after playing his last game for Georgia Tech, Jarrett Jack will complete the education he came to Tech to acquire. Jack, a Brooklyn Nets guard in his 10th year in the NBA, completed coursework this summer, having taken summer classes during his offseason over several years. Jack will go to considerable lengths to participate in graduation ceremonies Saturday morning at McCamish Pavilion. The Nets play Friday night against Philadelphia and have a game at Charlotte Saturday night.
Come Saturday morning, Jarrett Jack is going to be a more complete man – more proud, more confident, more ready to meet the future, whatever it may be. Jack, the Nets’ backup point guard, will fulfill a promise he made to his family and himself 10 years ago. He will get his degree in Business Management from Georgia Tech in Atlanta. That’s a nice story. But it’s only half the story. “It’s a big personal achievement,’’ Jack said. “Finally I’ve rounded third and hit the finish line. I can finally say I’m a college graduate.’’
