Jarrett Jack, Pistons talked

Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle:

While the Warriors chase two guys who are largely in their dreams, the two guys they can actually bring back are free to talk with other teams. Jack talked with Dallas and Detroit, has attention from Sacramento and Philadelphia and could link up with Landry again in Milwaukee.

In his late 20s, Jarrett Jack has elevated his game to higher levels than ever. He was a solid starter for the Hornets in 2011-12, and he finished third in Sixth Man of the Year voting with the Warriors last season.

Jack can play both guard positions, though in Detroit he’d probably most play point guard. He can score in the pick-and-roll, and though his passing his strong for an off guard, it’s only a little more than middling for a point guard. Defensively, Jack has improved despite lacking top-end agility.

As a backup, Jack is excellent. As a starter, he’s OK. He has probably peaked as a player, and although that peak would be a nice addition to the Pistons, odds are he’ll slowly decline in the coming years.

If the Pistons offer much more than the equivalent of the mid-level exception, they’re just asking for a bad contract. But there is an opportunity for value here.

I’d guess how seriously the Pistons pursue Jack will depend on how likely they view Jose Calderon as re-signing.

    Now this would be a good pickup. I could even see him starting. Solid veteran who we’d be able to sign for an affordable price.

    “equivalent of the mid-level exception”???

    Jack is worth about $3M annually.

      Where did you get that number?   All anyone seems to talk about here is not overpaying for players and most of you seem to think that 90 percent of players are overpaid.   It’s silly.   If you were the GM, no one would ever sign here because you would low ball every player and get outbid in every circumstance.

    Jack seems like he would fit great here but i’m not sure how much better he makes us in which case i’d rather just go back to the lottery.  if somehow iggy signs here, this would be a great guy to have and could make the pistons competitive for the 6th spot in the east, not a great place to be, but not awful either with a young team

    Jack destroys anything we ave at pg at the moment.  I am beginning to think Calderon is as good as gone, so for the development of our youngsters (Pope, Andre, etc), we need to have some consistent pg play.

    This would be a great pickup if we don’t over pay.

    Detroit needs a starter, not a backup PG, which is what jack is.
    His career has proven he is a backup. 
    Why add another backup to the long list already on the roster.
