Knicks sign veteran Jarrett Jack, potential mentor for Frank Ntilikina

Knicks sign veteran Jarrett Jack, potential mentor for Frank Ntilikina”

The New York Knicks will finalize an agreement with veteran free agent Jarrett Jack in the coming days, according to league sources.

In addition to Jack, the Knicks also signed veteran guard Ramon Sessions.

The right knee has been causing Jack problems for the last two years. If healthy, he gives the Knicks another veteran to potentially mentor rookie Frank Ntilikina. NY selected Ntilikina at No. 8 overall in the 2017 NBA Draft, and it's since executed a search for ideal veteran complements.

Jarrett Jack will reportedly sign with the Knicks.

The Knicks finished 31-51 a year ago, missing the playoffs for the fourth straight season. He appeared in only two games last season with the New Orleans Pelicans after tearing his ACL in January 2016 as a member of the Nets. It is unclear where Anthony might fit into that equation after the team spent the off-season trying to trade him.

Jack, 33, has played for eight teams in his 12 seasons in the league. He tore his the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and sustained a small medial meniscus tear midway through the 2015-16 season.

Jack has struggled through injuries in the past two seasons.

Over the course of his career, Jack owns averages of 11 points, 4.5 assists and 2.9 rebounds per game while making 44.1 percent of his field-goal attempts, 34.5 percent of his long-distance tries and 85.6 percent of his foul shots.

Basketball Insiders was the first to report the Jack deal.

The Knicks will begin training camp later this month and play their first preseason game October 3 against the Nets, with whom Jack played from 2014 to 2016.
