I’ve been pondering the trade that just brought guard Jarrett Jack to the Warriors and I’ve come to some conclusions — mostly this proves Bob Myers is the right GM for the Warriors, at least up to now.
He got what the Warriors need — a veteran backup point guard. And Jack is no dud. He actually can play, a good thing if Stephen Curry gets hurt.
But this trade means more than just that. It was part of a three-team deal with Philadelphia and New Orleans the other two teams. Hey, I like former Warriors GM Larry Riley, but I’m not sure he could have pulled this off. This trade involved Myers enormous contacts in the league and his imagination. Convoluted, creative trades like this one are exactly why Joe Lacob promoted Myers.
