Jarrett Matthew Jack (born October 28, 1983) is an American professional basketball player for the Golden State Warriors of the NBA. At 6'3" (1.91 m) tall and weighing 197 lbs (89 kg), he primarily plays point guard. Born in Fort Washington, Maryland, he attended four different high schools in North Carolina, Maryland and Massachusetts before playing collegiately at Georgia Tech. The Denver Nuggets drafted Jack in 2005.
The four different high schools he attended were DeMatha Catholic High School and St. Vincent Pallotti High School in Maryland, Mount Zion Academy in North Carolina and Worcester Academy in Massachusetts, where he played alongside Craig Smith.
After high school, Jack played for Georgia Tech in Atlanta. In his sophomore year (2003–04), he helped guide Georgia Tech to the NCAA Finals with 12.5 points and 5.1 assists a game. In his junior and final year at Georgia Tech he averaged 15.5 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.5 assists.
After his junior year at Georgia Tech, he opted to enter the 2005 NBA Draft and was selected by the Denver Nuggets with the 22nd pick. On draft night, he was traded to the Portland Trail Blazers in exchange for their 27th pick (Linas Kleiza) and 35th pick (Ricky Sánchez).
As a rookie in 2005–06, Jack backed up Steve Blake and Sebastian Telfair at the point, getting limited minutes. Blake was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks and Telfair was traded to the Boston Celtics in a multi-player trade during the 2006 off-season. In their absence, Jack was named starting point guard by coach Nate McMillan for the 2006–07 season, dramatically increasing his minutes and stats. With Blake's return in 2007–08, however, Jack was once again relegated to sixth man.
On July 11, 2012, Jack was traded to the Golden State Warriors in a three-team trade including the Philadelphia 76ers, who received Dorell Wright from Golden State.
On February 22, 2013, Jack recorded a double-double with 30 points and 10 assists against the Spurs and became the first bench player to record such numbers since Magic Johnson in 1996.
On the morning of Sunday, February 20, 2011, he was arrested for DUI in a suburb of Atlanta, while returning from an All-Star weekend party. He was going 66 in a 45 MPH zone and weaving uncontrollably. He failed a field sobriety test, and when taken to the police station, he registered just under the legal limit of 0.08 on the breathalyzer, albeit over an hour after his arrest. He was charged with DUI and failure to maintain lane, and was released later that night.
