Free-agent point guard Jarrett Jack agreed to a four-year, $25 million contract with the Cavaliers, according to The San Jose Mercury News and The deal includes a team option on the final season.

Jack, 29, averaged 12.9 points, 5.6 assists and 3.1 rebounds last season as a key piece on a Warriors team that advanced to the Western Conference semifinals. A strong, experienced guard adept at both scoring and distributing, Jack joins a Cavaliers backcourt that includes All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving and rising sophomore Dion Waiters, a 2012 lottery pick. Jack is widely regarded as a good locker-room leader, and he is capable of playing on or off the ball and in either a starting or reserve role.

The Warriors opted against retaining Jack, instead orchestrating a cap-clearing trade so that they could agree to sign free-agent swingman Andre Iguodala.

"Well, it was fun while it lasted," Jack tweeted Friday.

Free agents can officially sign contracts beginning Wednesday.
