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.
Jackson produced 11 points (5-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt), two rebounds and two assists across 30 minutes in Friday's 94-93 win over the Grizzlies.
Jackson's overall usage was still modest, but he was sharp from the field for the second straight game. The rookie has drained six of his 11 shots from distance over the last two contests, as well, leading to a pair of double-digit scoring tallies. However, it's worth noting that Jackson was slated for a bench role Friday until just before tip-off, making his starting position potentially tenuous over the season's two remaining games.

Jackson will play a reserve role in Friday's matchup with the Grizzlies, Jason Jones of The Sacramento Bee reports.
After 32 consecutive games in the starting lineup, Jackson will come off the bench Friday. It looks like the Kings have opted to give veterans Vince Carter and Zach Randolph a look with the first-unit, which has pushed Jackson back to a reserve role. He averaged 26.2 minutes per game in his recent string of starts, and still figures to see close to that workload off the bench.
