Report: Jarrett Jack almost back from knee surgery, will audition for teams

Teams will come take a look — plenty of teams could use a solid, veteran backup point guard who can get a team some buckets. Jarrett Jack might be able to be that again — averaged 12.8 points and 7.4 assists in the 32 games he played last season in Brooklyn.

However, teams are going to be skeptical for two reasons: He’s coming off ACL surgery, and now is 33 years old.

Jack was signed by the Hawks last summer but waived during training camp because he could not get healthy. He’s healthy now and ready for teams to take a look, reports Marc Stein of ESPN.

Jack isn’t the player he once was: He relies far more on his outside shot than ability to drive the paint, and he’s not a great defender. That said, off the bench on the right team he could certainly play a role. Teams will take a look.
