When asked how he felt about Jack leading the Nets' back court, Young told SiriusXM NBA Radio that he has high expectations.
"I have a lot of confidence in what he can do." Young said.
In 80 games last season, Jack averaged 12 points, 4.4 assists, and 2.8 rebounds in 27.9 minutes per game.
Point guard certainly is the biggest question mark for the team headed into the season, but it eases my mind a bit to hear Young give Jack his support.
Remember, Jack is a respected leader around the league -- so much so that Steph Curry acknowledged Jack's mentoring in his MVP acceptance presser. So while Jack might not be D-Will, he's no slouch, either. And what he has lost in his first step he might make up for in tutoring the plethora of low-risk, high-reward point guards he has waiting behind him, potentially elevating them in the process.
