The deal is reportedly for the league minimum and adds a veteran option to Atlanta’s point guard mix.
The Hawks were rumored to be in the market for a veteran option at the point. Dennis Schröder will take over for Jeff Teague as the starter. The team signed Malcolm Delaney out of Europe earlier this offseason.
Atlanta now has 16 players on the roster however, Lamar Patterson’s deal is not guaranteed.
Jack will be 33 in October and played in just 32 games with the Brooklyn Nets last season before suffering a torn ACL in his right knee. He averaged 12.8 points and 7.4 assists while shooting 39 percent from the field. Jack is an 11-year veteran out of Georgia Tech and has career averages of 11.1 points and 4.5 assists.
