Con: Jack is a Quality Defender

At 6’3″, Jack is strong and able to guard opposing point guards rather well. He holds his opponents to about 36 percent shooting, which is better than Warriors star Stephen Curry. Jack is a better defender than Curry on isolation plays as well as on pick and roll.

While Jack is not overly aggressive on the defensive end but is still active in the end.

  • Arteen Zahiri

    We should definitely bring him back. His play may be selfish at times, but he was huge part of our playoff run and he’s one of the few veterans on the team. His experience and leadership was shown throughout the season and his game was shown as well. Plus, having jack in the game with Steph and Klay can create a lot of small ball opportunities that have been effective in the past. And seriously, develop Scott Machado?

    • Ben Pickman

      Oh if possible we should definitely retain him. He was a valuable piece to the puzzle last season and if financial limitations were not a factor than he would be back in a second. Machado could possibly be an option, but other cheap options are available and we could also sign a few underrated rookies like Machado.
