New York Knicks point guard Jarrett Jack says the fast-paced offense run by head coach Jeff Hornacek doesn’t contain triangle principles.Voluntary workouts are underway for the New York Knicks, and the triangle offense is no more. That might be a bit dramatic, but it sounds like that’s the case after comments from new point guard Jarrett Jack.
The 33-year-old told reporters that the offense he’s seen from head Jeff Hornacek is fast-paced and doesn’t contain any triangle principles.
“If there are, he hasn’t implemented them yet,’’ Jack said regarding whether Hornacek has mentioned the triangle. “So far, it’s a lot of much more fast-paced offense, moving, cutting, more ball movement. From what I understand, that’s the crux of it for now.’’
Jack is a smart player who’s thrived in a fast break offense before.
He had one of the best seasons of his career with the 2012-13 Warriors; a team finished fourth in pace factor (estimate of possessions per 48 minutes).
Jack creates an even greater logjam at the point guard position. He’ll be competing for a roster spot while on a non-guaranteed contract.
