Adrian Wojnarowski: Sources: Brooklyn shopping Jarrett Jack with buyout date looming Thursday. Without trade, Nets plan to waive PG; would clear nearly $6M on cap. Jack tore ACL in January, and league sources say that rehab has been on strong pace and he’s expected to be ready for training camp in fall.
But with his health in question, the Puerto Rican national team may be forced to qualify for the Olympics without their unquestioned leader. With that said, Barea vows to return to his elite play next season, hoping to use this summer to recover from his minor aches and pains. “I’ve got to let the groin heal and just get some rest. I’ve got to get a small scope on my right knee, and then we’ll go from there,” Barea explained.
He added: “I’ve got to give this some rest. And when this is all good, I’ll see how I feel and make a decision. … You know, it’s super important for me to play for Puerto Rico, and I think it also helps me to stay ready for the next season, so we’ll see how it goes.”
