TARRYTOWN, N.Y. -- Jarrett Jack could play many roles with the Knicks this season.
Or he could play none at all.
If Jack, 33, is fully healthy after recovering from a torn ACL and meniscus in 2016 with the Nets, he could potentially be the team's starting point guard.
"Whatever job capacity they need, I feel I've been in all of them," Jack, who has career averages of 11.0 points and 4.5 assists, said Tuesday at the Knicks' facility. "And done well in all of them. If that's what it is, that's cool. If it's not, that's cool, too. There's a lot of ways to make a significant impact on team. It's a long season, long journey. Who knows how it shakes out when all said and done? I think I'm a well-rounded player."
The 22nd overall pick in the 2005 draft out of Georgia Tech, Jack has played for seven teams over his 12-year career. He signed a one-year deal with the Knicks that is not fully guaranteed.
Jack is one of several point guards the Knicks have in the mix, along with veteran Ramon Sessions, second-year guard Ron Baker, and rookie Frank Ntilikina.
"I think we've got a pretty solid stable of players at that position with a bunch of guys that are able to contribute when and if their number is called," he said.
The 6-foot-3 Jack played in just two games with New Orleans last season after getting injured with the Nets midway through the 2015-16 season, but says he's fully healthy now.
"No limitations, I meet with the staff every morning just to make sure there's no drawbacks, no setbacks," Jack said. "They've been telling me I'm ready to ramp it up each and every day so I'm happy with it."
Another role he could play is as a mentor to Ntilikina, the Frenchman chosen No. 8 in the Draft. "He got really, really long arms, man," Jack said of Ntilikina. "His size, I didn't know he was as tall as he is. He has a great pace to him. He's crafty, definitely going to cause a lot of problems on the defensive end which in turn can hopefully lead to some easy buckets on offense."
Offensively, Jack says the Knicks will play a more up-tempo style of play under coach Jeff Hornacek now that Phil Jackson and the triangle offense are gone.
"So far it's a lot of much more fast-paced offense, moving cutting, more ball movement," he said. "From what I understand, that's the crux of it for now."
Asked if any remnants of the triangle remained, he said, "If there are, he hasn't implemented them yet."
Meanwhile, Jack is also looking forward to playing with both Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis. Jack played against Anthony during AAU ball when he played for the Maryland Stallions and Anthony played for Mount Royal.
"I've known Melo since he was 10, 11 years old," he said. "He's from Baltimore. Crazy enough we never used to play in either one of our cities. We played in this one tournament in South Philly. And we kicked Melo in the ass all the time. Make sure you ask him about that."
As for Porzingis, who was competing for Latvia in the European Championship, Jack called him a "tremendous talent."
"[I'm] still trying to get over the fact this guy is so agile, moving around the perimeter," he said. "He's 7-3. Looking forward to playing with him, watching the matchup problems he presents being such a big guy able to shoot the ball and spread the court. I'm looking forward to that."
