When he was on the floor that season, the 33-year-old Jack averaged 12.8 points, 7.4 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game while shooting 39.1 percent from the floor, 30.4 percent from 3-point range and 89.3 percent from the free-throw line.

General manager Scott Perry has said that the club would look to add veterans to play alongside Ntilikina, whom the Knicks selected with the No. 8 pick in June's draft.

Jack suffered the injury late in the third quarter of Saturday's victory over the Boston Celtics.

The Knicks were keeping an eye on Jack and Trey Burke in past weeks, looking for that extra veteran to help guide rookie Frank Ntilikina through his first year in the league.

The preceding year, Jack played in 32 games for the Brooklyn Nets but tore his ACL and his small medial meniscus in his right knee.

After signing with Atlanta last summer, he got waived in camp, still clearly not recovered. Last season, Jack suited up for the New Orleans Pelicans for two games after signing a 10-day contract in February. Signing Jack is one of the more savvy moves the Knicks have made this offseason, however, and it shouldn't be dismissed as an irrelevant decision.
