METAIRIE, La. (AP) Jarrett Jack joined the New Orleans Pelicans on a 10-day contract, giving the team backcourt depth as it heads into its final 24 games with a playoff berth within reach.
The 11-year veteran hasn't played since seriously injuring his right knee 32 games into the 2015-16 season while he was a starter with Brooklyn. He averaged 12.8 points and 7.4 assists for the Nets last season.
"I'm ready to go. I'd do a disservice to the team or a disservice to myself if I didn't feel like I could come down here and be myself," said the 33-year-old guard, who worked out for the Pelicans on Thursday. ""Still feel spry, still feel I can get into the lane - just got to get into game shape."
