It was expected that after Dwight Howard signed, the NBA domino’s would fall and fall they have.
Just moments after Carl Landry agreed to a free agent deal with the Sacramento Kings, his former Golden State Warriors teammate has agreed to a four year, $25 million dollar contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Per Marcus Thompson:
Jarrett Jack is signing a four-year, $25 million deal with Cleveland, source says
Jack was very open about his desire to remain in Oakland, all but refusing to remove his jersey after the Warriors playoff defeat, stating that he wanted to finish his career by the Bay. Instead, he’ll be continuing his career by the Lake.
The former Georgia Tech product thrived in Golden State high tempo offense, something many expect the Cavaliers to employ this coming season.
With relatively iffy guard depth, Jack should have no problem finding a similar amount of available minutes as he found in Golden State last year and should play an important role off the bench for the Cavs. While not exactly cheap, it’s near Jack’s going rate and his veteran leadership and quality point guard play should help the Cavs improve for the 2013-14 season.
