Brooklyn Nets: Five Must-Watch Games Of The 2016-17 Season

Jarrett Jack is Back

  • Date: Tuesday, January 10 at 7:30 p.m. ET
  • Opponent: Atlanta Hawks
  • Venue: Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York

Jarrett Jack was let go because paying a 32-year-old backup point guard $6 million during a rebuilding season doesn’t make sense.

Jack added fuel to the fire with a strategically placed tweet over the summer.

Shortly after Jeremy Lin announced he had committed to the Brooklyn Nets via Twitter, Jack took to social media to display what everyone thought was his reaction.

Not exactly an endorsement for his inevitable replacement.

Jack decided to hilariously backpedal 25 minutes later and claim that the two tweets weren’t related.

He just happened to think something else was funny, 20 minutes after Lin’s tweet.

Jack was asked to do too much last season. His defensive issues and inefficient shooting prevent him from being the starter the Nets needed. He will be missed by Lopez, who he got along well with on and off the court.
