According to Marc J. Spears of ESPN, the Brooklyn Nets have requested waivers on former Portland Trail Blazers guard Jarrett Jack.

Jack was scheduled to make $6.3 million next season but the contract was not guaranteed. The Nets will reportedly end up owing $500,000 and, assuming he clears waivers, Jack will become a free agent.

The 32-year-old combo guard was drafted by the Blazers in 2005, part of the deal that also netted Martell Webster in exchange for a pick that famously could have netted Portland Deron Williams or Chris Paul. Jack played 3 seasons for the Blazers, averaging 9.5 points and 4 assists in 27 minutes per game. In addition to Brooklyn, Jack's career stops include Toronto, New Orleans, Indiana, Cleveland, and Golden State. He holds career averages of 11 points and 4.5 assists in 28 minutes per game.
