Former Brooklyn Nets point guard Jarrett Jack has signed with the Atlanta Hawks on a one-year deal, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical. After having traded Jeff Teague this summer, the Hawks certainly could use a veteran at the point.

The Nets waived Jack just before the start of free agency this summer, having to pay him $500,000 in guaranteed money, stretched out over three years.
Jack played in 112 games over two seasons with Brooklyn, averaging 12.2 points, 3.4 rebounds and 5.4 assists in 29.2 minutes per game. Last year, Jack started 32 games for the Nets, averaging 12.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and 7.4 assists in 32.1 minutes per game before suffering a season-ending knee injury on January 2.
