ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Hawks and point guard Jarrett Jack have agreed on a one-year contract for next season.

Jack will back up starterDennis Schroder. The Hawks needed an established point guard after trading Jeff Teague before the draft.

Jack made several posts to his Twitter account that he was returning to Atlanta, where he helped Georgia Tech advance to the 2004 national title game.

The Hawks will be Jack's eighth team in 12 seasons. He spent the past two with Brooklyn, which waived him last month.

Jack averaged 12.8 points and 7.4 assists in 32 games before suffering a season-ending knee injury last January.
