Jarrett Jack played 19 minutes in the Knicks' season-ending victory over the Cavs on Wednesday night, scoring six points and adding three rebounds and four assists.
In a year where the Knicks were supposed to embrace a youth movement, Jack ended up starting 56 games at the point guard position of the 62 he played. He averaged 7.5 points and 5.6 assists on the year. Even though he was no fantasy dynamite, finishing safely outside the top-250, Jack's veteran leadership guided the Knicks to a better start than anyone anticipated and it was only after Kristaps Porzingis' season-ending injury that the Knicks went into tank mode and sat Jack 19 games in a row. As a leader on this team with a crowded backcourt, it's hard to gauge what kind of future Jack has with the Knicks. That future may end up on a coaching staff instead of on the floor.
