Jackson has agreed to an Exhibit 10 contract with the Lakers, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports. The former 45th overall pick in the 2016 Draft, Jackson has spent time on three NBA teams -- Boston, Houston and Philadelphia. Last season, he got most of his run with the 76ers' G League affiliate, the Delaware Blue Coats, averaging 18.9 points on 15.5 shots, 7.4 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 1.4 steals. Jackson also appeared in five summer league games this season with the Trail Blazers, where he posted 6.2 points on 5.2 shots, 1.8 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.0 steal in 16.5 minutes. If he fails to make the Lakers' final roster, he'll likely spend most of the upcoming season in the G League.
Jackson will be released by the 76ers, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Jackson was on a two-way deal with Philadelphia, and after his release, he will sign with a team in China. He saw action in just six games, averaging 6.5 minutes per appearance.
Jackson chipped in 10 points (3-8 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 10 minutes during Sunday's 129-95 loss to the Trail Blazers. Jackson finished with a career high in scoring while recording season highs in rebounds and minutes. Jackson has appeared in only five games thus far this season, and the main reason he earned a season high minute total in this one likely had more to do with the lopsided score than anything else.
Jackson was recalled from the G League on Wednesday, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Jackson has yet to play in the NBA, spending almost all of his time in the G League. Still, he'll be available for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans.
Jackson scored 21 points and tallied six rebounds to go along with six assists in the win Tuesday over the Charge. Jackson didn't play in the loss Saturday to Raptors 905, but the guard has performed when he's been inserted into the starting lineup. On a two-way contract for what figures to be much of the season, Jackson will continue to mature as a player with the Blue Coats unless the 76ers suddenly need depth in the backcourt.
