Report: Pistons aggressively seeking guard, looking at Jarrett Jack
The Nets are reportedly close to acquiring Reggie Jackson for Brook Lopez.
That would create a point guard logjam in Brooklyn, which also has Deron Williams and Jarrett Jack.
The Wizards have been mentioned as a Jack suitor, but they might have competition.

Pistons aggressively pursuing guard help. Jarrett Jack, Norris Cole among the playmakers SVG is looking at, per league sources.— Chris Mannix (@SIChrisMannix) February 19, 2015
The Pistons’ interest in Norris Cole was already reported, but here’s a different spin from Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press:
Jack would be a talent upgrade for Detroit, but he’s guaranteed for $6.3 million next season. The Pistons already have Brandon Jennings, D.J. Augustin and Spencer Dinwiddie under guaranteed contracts for next season. When Jennings gets healthy, that’s pretty crowded.
Stan Van Gundy has said he won’t sacrifice the future for the present. I doubt Jack makes him re-think that.
