Moments after Carl Landry reportedly signed with the Sacramento Kings, his former teammate with the New Orleans Hornets and Golden State Warriors signed a deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers, sources told Marcus Thompson of the Bay Area News Group.
Jarrett Jack is signing a four-year, $25 million deal with Cleveland, source says

The deal has yet to be finalized, but the annual salary would be about $6.3 million. To put that into perspective, Jose Calderon signed a four-year, $29 million deal on Friday with the Dallas Mavericks.
But don’t jump to conclusions so fast:
It’s closer than you might’ve thought after all.
Like Landry, who will make roughly $6.5 million per year with the Sacramento Kings over the next four seasons, Jack provided offense and leadership off the bench for the Warriors. He averaged 12.9 points and 5.6 assists in 29.7 minutes per game, which came after he averaged 15.6 points and 6.3 assists with the New Orleans Hornets (now the Pelicans) in 2011-12.
So yeah, he was due for a raise. The Cavs gave him that, and he will now serve as Kyrie Irving’s backup and mentor–same goes for Dion Waiters and the rest of Cleveland’s youngsters.
