Jackson tallied 20 points (7-24 FG, 2-12 3Pt, 4-5 FT) and four rebounds in 28 minutes during Wednesday's 96-84 summer league loss to the Cavaliers.
Following Wednesday's tilt, Jackson is averaging 19.0 points across four summer league tilts. That represents a significant step in the right direction for the second-year player out of North Carolina, as he posted just 6.7 points across 22.1 minutes per game as a rookie.
Jackson accrued 20 points (8-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT) and two rebounds across 31 minutes during Tuesday's 94-80 win over the Grizzlies.
Jackson, who averaged just 6.7 points in 22.1 minutes last season, has turned his scoring up during this year's summer league. Through six summer league games, he's totaled 107 points, plus 19 rebounds, four assists, four steals and a block. It's possible he breaks into fantasy relevance for deeper leagues this season.
Jackson provided 28 points (10-19 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists and a block across 33 minutes during the Kings' 88-78 loss to the Clippers in a Las Vegas Summer League contest Sunday.
Despite the Kings blowing a near-game-long lead, Jackson was a bright spot, putting on a shooting clinic, including from distance. Jackson has been thriving in summer league play overall, as he averaged 17.0 points on 53.0 percent shooting in the California Classic League over three games before arriving in the desert. He's now averaging 18.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 2.0 steals over two games in Vegas Summer League play as he looks to set the foundation for what he and the Kings hope will be a breakout second season.
Jackson scored a team-high 20 points (7-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT) to go along with five rebounds and one assist in 29 minutes during Tuesday's 71-54 loss to the Warriors.
After scoring just five points on 2-of-6 shooting during the Kings' first summer league tilt, Jackson put together a bounce-back game Tuesday. The 15th overall pick in last year's draft, Jackson started 41 of his 68 appearances with Sacramento last season, though wasn't stuffing the stat sheet. In 22.1 minutes per contest, he averaged 6.7 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.1 assists while shooting 44.2 percent from the field.
Jackson recorded 6.7 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.1 assists across 68 games played with Sacramento in 2017-18.
Jackson had an average rookie year as his final stats would indicate but did show at times his potential to be an offensive standout. His career high came on Mar. 22 against Atlanta when he poured in 20 points on 7-for-8 shooting from the floor. The former North Carolina star has one more guaranteed year on his rookie contract and will make about $2.8 million next season.
