Jack is averaging 8.5 points and 3.7 assists this season as Kyrie Irving's backup, shooting 39.7 percent from the floor. It's been a disappointing downturn after his excellent season as the Golden State Warriors' sixth man last year, but a somewhat predictable one given the fact that he is sharing minutes with ball-dominant guards Irving and Dion Waiters. Cleveland signed Jack to a four-year, $25.2 million contract in July, but the last year is almost fully unguaranteed.
The Kings have been searching for a point guard to back up Isaiah Thomas for a while now, and were linked with the Denver Nuggets' Andre Miller earlier this season. Jimmer Fredette is currently playing that role, but is more of a natural scorer than a distributor.
The trade deadline is Thursday at 3 p.m. ET.
