The Knicks have found another veteran guard to mentor 18-year-old rookie Frank Ntilikina.
Jarrett Jack has agreed to a one-year, non-guaranteed deal with the Knicks, according to multiple reports.
Jack, 33, will most likely serve as a veteran presence in a locker room filled with young and inexperienced players as well as act as a mentor to Ntilikina. Jack is 15 years older than Ntilikina and has started 342 games throughout his 12-year career.
Basketball Insiders was the first to report news of the deal.
Jack played for the Nets from 2014-2016, starting 59 games for the team.
If healthy, Jack will most likely compete for backup minutes behind Ntilikina. Jack has missed the majority of the last two seasons due to a right ACL injury he suffered in the 2015-16 season while with the Nets.
In addition to Jack, the Knicks also have 31-year-old Ramon Sessions to help mentor Ntilikina.
Jack has played for seven teams in his career, averaging 11.0 points and 4.5 assists.
