HoopsHype Jarrett Jack rumors


February 20, 2014 Updates

On the Sacramento-Cleveland front, I'm told the Jarrett Jack-for-Jason Thompson deal first reported by ESPN.com is on life support. The initial report indicated that the Cavs wanted a third team to send Thompson to, and apparently they're finding that extraordinarily difficult. USA Today Sports

The Warriors are still looking to see if they can upgrade their core without laying complete waste to what they’ve already built. Don’t close the door on a possible return of Jarrett Jack, one source said, suggesting that the Cavs would help their campaign to retain Kyrie Irving by acquiring Harrison Barnes, who Irving stumped for before the draft. Knowing the familiarity between Lacob and Ainge, I’d be surprised if a Green-for-Barnes-centered swap wasn’t at least broached as well. Bleacher Report

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
