The New York Knicks have a shiny new franchise point guard in Frenchman Frank Ntilikina, but more depth is always better. According to Michael Scotto of Basketball Insider, the Knicks have signed veteran guard Jarrett Jack to a one-year deal. The contract is non-guaranteed, meaning he can be released with no financial consequence.

Jack only appeared in two games last season with the New Orleans Pelicans before injuring his right knee. And by injure, he tore his right meniscus and was forced to have surgery. At age 33 his injury history is more than troubling, but he represents a low-risk investment. Prior to his time with the Pelicans Jack was a solid bench player, averaging 8.5 points per game over a ten-year stretch between 2006 and 2016. The Knicks have a backcourt of Ntilikina, former Wichita State star Ron Baker, Courtney Lee, and recently signed Ramon Sessions. It is certainly no guarantee that Jack even makes the roster out of training camp, but he could provide some veteran depth. Jarrett Jack is no stranger to the New York area either having played with the Brooklyn Nets in the 2015-2016 season.
