Just a day after the Golden State Warriors signed Andre Iguodala, Jarret Jack has found a new home with the Cleveland Cavaliers, who have signed him to a four-year $25 million deal.

The Spurs’ killer will probably go on and play a similar role as he did when he was with the Golden State Warriors.  Jack has been a thorn in the Spurs side for years, and continued it during the playoffs this past season.

During the playoffs, Jack averaged just under 18 a game for the Golden State Warriors.  Against San Antonio, he averaged 15.5 points.  He dropped 24 and 20 in back-to-back games.

On the season, he averaged 12.9 points, 3.1 rebounds, 5.6 assists, while shooting 45% from the floor.

I do like this signing by the Cleveland Cavaliers as I feel that Jack can contribute the way he has done for teams that he has played with in the past.  Though for $6 million, that is something hard to chew on.
