Steve: Hornets trade Jack in salary-dump move
Dealin’ Dell Demps has been at it again and has traded point guard Jarrett Jack to the Golden State Warriors.
In return the Hornets get back the draft rights to Edin Bavcic, who was selected back in 2006. Honestly, they really take nothing back in this deal. Complete salary dump move here folks. Jack was set to make $5.6 mill this coming season and it was the final year of his contract.
I really like this move for the Hornets, because they are getting more cap space. Plus, this means that Austin Rivers is going to be thrown right into the fire from the get go and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.
The Hornets 10th overall pick is getting most of his work in at point guard as the team is holding a mini-camp as they get ready to leave for the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.
Grevis Vazques also remains on the roster as the likely back-up point guard to Rivers.
