Jack is one of the best mid-range shooters in the league. Fourteen percent of all of Jack’s shots come from the center of the floor in the 8-16 foot range, and in this range Jack shoots 54 percent, a mark high above league average.

The Warriors led by Jack run pick and roll 31 percent of the time when on the floor, and the they are incredibly successful when running screen and roll with Jack.

Jack is an excellent shooter overall and is highly consistent from all over the floor, but especially from mid-range, an area where most NBA players struggle.

  • 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.
