After all Jack can play both guard positions spark the team’s 2nd-unit offensively and provide toughness and veteran leadership for a team poised for a potential playoff run. However it appears that the “Jarrett Jack era” may be a little slow coming out of the gate in Cleveland.

Cavaliers desperate for a backup center, and Henry Sims is ready for the job

At some point this season the Cavaliers believe they will at long last have a deep and talented corps of players who can rotate at center. That point became more distant in the future however when Tyler Zeller had an appendectomy Friday. The 7-foot second-year player already was recovering from a hip injury suffered during an intrasquad scrimmage. Now his return to the court is...
