HoopsHype Jarrett Jack rumors

February 18, 2014 Updates

Jarrett Jack hears the same things everyone else does. Two days before the NBA's trade deadline, there were rumors that the Cavaliers guard is headed to Brooklyn in exchange for Jason Terry, or to Sacramento for any number of players. Jack doesn't know what's true and what's not. And he's not worrying about it. "I can't worry about it unless I find out there's some legitimacy to it," he said. Meanwhile, he hopes that the rumors are false. Although Jack's start in Cleveland hasn't been what he's expected – he's averaging 8.5 points on 39.7 percent shooting – he's happy where he is. "It's good to be wanted and coveted," Jack said, "but I didn't come here to want to leave in four months. I came here to try to help build something, and I want to keep that going for as long as I can. " Cleveland Plain Dealer

A league source confirmed the Cavs have held talks with the Sacramento Kings and Brooklyn Nets over a possible deal for Jack, who is owed another $12.6 million guaranteed over the next two seasons. ESPN.com first reported the trade negotiations involving Jack, who has been shopped for the last couple of weeks. Akron Beacon Journal

By the time Miles entered the game early in the second quarter, the Cavs were down by 26 points, soon to be 29, at 50-21. He said he tried to bring the kind of energy, pace and spacing that clearly were missing. But he also made an interesting observation about how the Cavs continually find themselves in these situations. "I just think we get discouraged too easily,'' he said quietly. "It's been hard, and it's going to be hard. There have been nights where we played our hardest and played our best basketball and haven't been able to win games, and there have been nights that we didn't play good basketball and won games. "Lately, with everything that's been going on, it's just like our mental focus…take anything that's bothering you or any frustration and leave it out there. if you don't want anybody to talk about you, prove them wrong.''

Two opposing general managers this season have told me they think Irving is pouting. Over what is anyone’s guess. Jarrett Jack hasn’t been the locker room enforcer he was supposed to be. Luol Deng should help, but he just arrived and may not be here past April. That has left Mike Brown trying to keep everyone in his “circle” despite what has been a disappointing season.

"Things happen. We're able to talk amongst one another. You can have a disagreement. That's very much OK. It's not against the law. But the whole thing about it is, if you're going to have a talk or any conversation, a resolution should be the reason for having it in the first place. That was the whole reason why we called the meeting, had the discussions. I like the place that we're in right now.'' Miles said it was too soon to tell if the meeting really helped, but he sensed that it did. "We talked about what we wanted to do and what we wanted to continue to try to do as a team -- just the little things we felt we needed to put out on the table…and what we can do to get everybody on the same page all the time,'' he said. "That was pretty much it. Guys basically agreed to what we wanted to do and we're just going to keep moving forward.'' Asked if he thought the team was good going forward, he smiled and said, "100 percent.'' Cleveland Plain Dealer

Speaking of Bennett, I jokingly asked Jarrett Jack if he would start fining Bennett for every 3-pointer he misses. “I’m going to get mad at him if he doesn’t shoot it,” Jack said. “He’s capable. Over the course of an 82-game season, you’re going to have a rough shooting patch. All of us are. That’s part of that rookie wall process. Obviously you want to come in right away and hit the ground running, but this is the NBA. It doesn’t always happen like that. Every book you read isn’t always a fairy tale. Throughout the season, you’re going to have peaks and valleys. How you handle those, that’s the make-up of a professional and you have to understand you’re a man now. There’s no hiding anymore. And he’s been taking it in stride every day, just constantly trying to get better, constantly working hard and constantly working at it. That’s all you can ask for of anybody in his position.” Akron Beacon Journal
