Delayed Player Movement 2009

A nice write-up about recent signings which includes Jack

Jarrett Jack, PG/SG, Toronto Raptors

The Toronto Raptors signed Indiana guard Jarrett Jack to a four-year, $20 million contract. The move shores up a Raptors backcourt depleted by the loss of veteran off-guard Anthony Parker to Cleveland and also entrenches another young player in the Raptors’ backcourt (Parker was the Raptors' oldest player at 34, while Jack is only 25). However, with four years in the league already, Jack provides enough experience that he can step into the Raptors' rotation right away.

Jack's game is well-suited to the Raptors' needs. Known for his perimeter defense, which the Raptors currently lack, he will be able to spell starting point guard Jose Calderon's much-reported sieve-like qualities. In keeping his man in front of him, Jack will also allow Chris Bosh and Andrea Bargnani to focus on their own defensive assignments instead of having to bail out beaten teammates.

A slasher on a team full of shooters, Jack will draw attention away from the perimeter, forcing defenses to adjust to a multi-pronged backcourt attack. Considering the propensity of most of the team's players, including its starting center in Bargnani, to stand out on the perimeter, this helps immensely. Defenders will have to play off of Jack, giving him more space so he won't be able to blow by them, in which he can find a shooter or take a shot himself (he averaged 35.3% from three last year, his highest as a pro.)

He has also proved able to play big minutes either as a starter or off the bench, and the Raptors could use him in either role. He has averaged over 33 minutes per game twice in his career, putting up respectable averages of 12.0 points per game and 5.3 assists while in Portland in 2006-07 and 13.1 points, 4.1 assists and a career-high 3.4 rebounds in Indiana last year. In Toronto, he could take the vacant off-guard spot, letting 19-year old rookie DeMar DeRozan develop gradually. Alternately, DeRozan or potential re-acquisition Carlos Delfino could start at shooting guard while Jack assumes his presumable ending point of backing up both guard spots.

Jack, a former teammate of Bosh when they played at Georgia Tech, told the Indianapolis Star that his stint with the Raptors “will be like freshman year… all over again”. Jack's signing is the latest in a series of moves that general manager Bryan Colangelo has made to improve the team this summer in the likely hope of retaining Bosh. (Jack has apparently been bugging Bosh to stay in Toronto already.) Bosh will likely not exercise his player option next summer and he will then be one of the most sought-after players in a free-agency class that could also include LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.

Paragraph 1: Raps signed Jack. Experienced, even though 9 years younger than AP.

Paragraph 2: Good perimeter defender. Will allow Bosh and Bargs to focus on their own defense.

Paragraph 3: Slasher on a team of shooters.

Paragraph 4: Will either be primary SG option (allowing DeRozan to develop at his own pace), or be primary back up for both PG and SG.

Paragraph 5: Might help Raptors retain Bosh.

Well then this article is just stating the obvious. Must be a slow day.
