Jarrett Matthew Jack (born October 28, 1983 in Fort Washington, Maryland) is an American professional basketball player for the Toronto Raptors of the NBA. At 6' 3" (1.91 m) tall and weighing 197 lbs (90 kg), Jack plays at guard.


High school career

Growing up, Jack attended four different high schools: DeMatha Catholic High School and St. Vincent Pallotti in Maryland, Mount Zion Academy in North Carolina and Worcester Academy in Massachusetts. At Worcester Academy he played alongside current Los Angeles Clippers player Craig Smith.

College career

After high school Jack attended and played for Georgia Tech in Atlanta, Georgia.[2] In his sophomore year (2003–04) he helped guide Georgia Tech to the NCAA Finals with 12.5 points and 5.1 assists a game. In his junior and final year at Georgia Tech he averaged 15.5 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.5 assists.

NBA career

After his junior year at Georgia Tech, he opted to enter the 2005 NBA Draft, where Jack was selected by the Denver Nuggets with the 22nd pick. On draft night, he was traded to the Portland Trail Blazers in exchange for their 27th pick (Linas Kleiza) and 35th pick (Ricky Sánchez).

As a rookie in 2005–06, Jack backed up Steve Blake and Sebastian Telfair at the point, getting limited minutes. Blake was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks and Telfair was traded to the Boston Celtics in a multi-player trade during the 2006 off-season. In their absence, Jack was appointed the starting point guard position by coach Nate McMillan for the 2006–07 season, dramatically increasing his averages. With the return of point guard Steve Blake in 2007–08, Jack once again returned to the role of a sixth man.

On July 9, 2008, Jack was traded to the Indiana Pacers along with Josh McRoberts and 2008 NBA draft pick Brandon Rush for Ike Diogu and Jerryd Bayless.[3]

On July 13, 2009, Jack signed a 4-year, $20 million offer sheet with the Toronto Raptors.[4] The Pacers had seven days to match the offer, and they chose not to.[5]
