Jarrett Jack can kill two birds with one stone for the Celtics. They need a backup point guard, and with Jack they get that, plus a guy who can score or play like a shooting guard. To me Jack is like JR Smith from the Knicks but with more character,and with more to offer. Smith is one dimensional,and Jack can offer you more. Jack made $5,580,000 in 2012-13, and the question is how can they bring in Jack, and would he want to leave Golden State?
|2012-13 Regular Season||79||29.7||4.9-10.8||.452||1.0-2.6||.404||2.1-2.5||.843||3.1||5.6||0.1||0.8||1.7||2.0||12.9|
Jack has been the perfect guy off the bench in this years playoffs. The Celtics can perhaps workout a sign and trade if Jack wasnts to make the same amount next season. The Celtics could also use their mid-level exception. The Celtics needed scoring this season, and especially off the bench. The Celtics depth was a glaring weakness in this years playoffs. I wouldn't see the Warriors trading Jack. Unless he was hell bent on not returning to the Warriors, which he probably wants to return. The Warriors may not want to pay him. Their payroll will increase to 74 million in 2014, but they also have Jefferson,and Biedrins on player options.
I don't know if it's possible, but I think Jack would be big for the Celtics, and they need what he brings. He can play point, and he can play shooting guard. Plus has an actual guy who can score off the bench. Jack would be an upgrade over someone like Lee.
