This offseason, the Warriors’ primary goal should be to re-sign Jarrett Jack, but that could always be a problem. He doesn’t necessarily want to re-sign with the Warriors, and although he said that he did, he could just go wherever the money is. A lot of players seem to do that these days. There’s a couple teams that Jack could be very useful and thrive in. The Warriors are of course desperate to re-sign him, but there’s a lot of conflict. If they re-sign Jack, Carl Landry cannot be re-signed.
There’s a lot of questions for the Warriors this offseason, and they need to be able to have the same type of roster next year so that they can continue to win. Dwight Howard is a question for the Warriors, but before the fans get excited, they need to remember that Howard is very impulsive and could go anywhere. It’s going to be a interesting offseason, but where is Jack headed?
Golden State Warriors:
If Jack said that the only thing that he’s proud to be wearing is a Warriors’ jersey, then I think it’s safe to assume that there’s a pretty strong possibility of him re-signing with the them. This year, Jack was third in the running for 6th Man of the Year, and had one of the best seasons of his career, even if his scoring numbers were down. His role as a reserve point guard is one of the best he could have asked for. He plays starter minutes, and still gets the bench credits for the Dubs. It’s going to be interesting to see if leaves for a starting role, or chooses to re-sign with the Dubs. As of now, he’s got a good chance of returning.
It seems like the Mavericks are trying to make a play for every free agent in this offseason, and they’re being really aggressive. Dirk Nowtizki had his taste of championship in 2011, and he’s hungry again. Can you blame him? His team was on the decline the season after, and this year, the Mavericks failed to make the playoffs. Nowitzki even says that he’s willing to take a massive pay cut to bring in some reinforcements.
The Mavericks are in need of a point guard, and Jack could be that guy easily. He looks for the shot every possession, and the Mavs need some instant offense that they could look for. If Jack sees his career headed to Dallas, then he’s going to sign there. Like Bob Myers said, Jack needs to do what’s best for him. Unfortunately for the Warriors, that may not mean signing with them.
Los Angeles Clippers:
The Clippers aren’t going to have enough room to re-sign Chris Paul and Eric Bledsoe, that’s a fact right now. If you could only keep one, you know who you’re going to keep no question. The Clippers may want a backup point guard the same caliber, or maybe even better than Bledsoe. Jack fits that definition. They haven’t said that they’re going to make a move for him, but honestly, it makes a lot of sense.
