The Knicks guaranteed point guard Jarrett Jack's contract by keeping him on the roster for Sunday's game against the Mavericks.
"Jarrett has been a leader for the Knicks on and off the court," Knicks GM Scott Perry said in a statement, according to the New York Daily News' Stefan Bondy. "He's a valuable member of this team and we look forward to him continuing his successful play for the remainder of the season."
Jack, 34, had played 34 games over the past two seasons due to a torn ACL and a partially torn meniscus, but has played 37 games for the Knicks this season, starting 36 of them.
"I've had a tremendous time playing and competing with these dudes coming back from my injury," Jack said, according to Bondy.
Jack has averaged 7.2 points, 5.9 assists and 3.5 rebounds in 26.4 minutes per game this season.
