Jackson was waived by the Rockets on Thursday, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports. Jackson had his team option for the 2018-19 campaign exercised at the end of June, but the Rockets are changing course and are now set to release the 32-year-old guard. The expectation is that Jackson will pursue an overseas opportunity in China, though he could join an NBA team in the second half of the 2018-19 schedule once his season overseas is completed.
Jackson's team option for 2018-19 was picked up by the Rockets on Friday, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports. With the offseason frenzy about to kick off, it's fair to question whether the Rockets truly want Jackson on their team next season or if they only value him as a trade piece. The 32-year-old has only ever played in one NBA game previously.
Jackson will sign with the Houston Rockets for the remainder of the season, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports. Jackson will join the Rockets for the postseason, adding some depth at the guard position. Jackson played in the NBA Summer League after going undrafted in 2009, but this will mark his first stint on an official roster. He's spent the last seven seasons playing overseas, spending most of his time in the EuroLeague and a little bit of time in the Chinese Basketball Association. The Rockets have one more game prior to the playoffs, so Jackson likely see much, if any, action for Houston.
