Jackson signed a two-way contract with the Bucks on Wednesday, Eric Nehm of The Athletic reports.
After converting Mamadi Diakite's two-way contract into a multi-year deal, the Bucks used the open two-way spot on Jackson. Jackson has bounced around the league since being drafted 15th overall by the Kings in 2017. He's appeared in games for Sacramento, Dallas and Oklahoma City. In his 247 games (61 starts), he's averaged 6.6 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 19.1 minutes. With the Bucks, he'll likely only see the court during garbage time or situations where Milwaukee is dealing with multiple significant injuries.
The Thunder waived Jackson on Monday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Jackson was on an expiring deal and was unlikely to be retained heading into 2021-22, so the Thunder will presumably use his roster spot on a developmental option. He appeared in 33 games for Oklahoma City this season, averaging 7.2 points, 2.2 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.0 three-pointers in 16.5 minutes per contest.
Jackson posted 15 points (5-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT) across 12 minutes Friday in a loss to Phoenix.
Jackson posted more than a point per minute thanks to an efficient shooting effort, including a 3-for-5 performance from beyond the arc. The 26-year-old's stat line was otherwise mostly empty, as he picked up just one rebound and one assist along with no defensive stats. Jackson is shooting just 41.3 percent from the field this season, so Friday's performance was more of an exception than a norm.
Jackson finished Sunday's win over the Rockets with 15 points (5-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT) in 13 minutes.
Jackson's role tends to vary night to night, but he made the most of his limited action Sunday, drilling a pair of threes and posting his highest point total since Feb. 14. The effort came on the heels of a DNP-CD in Thursday's loss to Atlanta.
Jackson will start Sunday's game against the Grizzlies, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.
With a wide array of Oklahoma City players sidelined Sunday, Jackson will receive his third start of the year. In his last start on Feb. 14, Jackson went for 22 points, three rebounds and five assists across 34 minutes.
Jackson will come off the bench Tuesday against Portland, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.
The 25-year-old had 22 points in a spot start Sunday, but he'll shift back to the bench with Theo Maledon (COVID-19 protocols) back in action Tuesday. Jackson should still be involved in the rotation with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (knee) still sidelined.
Jackson collected 22 points (9-16 FG, 4-4 3Pt), five assists, three rebounds and one steal across 34 minutes Sunday in the Thunder's 114-109 victory over the Bucks.
Coming off a 20-point outing off the bench Friday, Jackson was moved into the starting lineup in favor of Hamidou Diallo while point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (knee) missed his third straight game. Jackson was tasked with filling some of the void as a playmaker and came through with a new season-high mark in assists, and his hot shooting from downtown also carried over. He's now converting at a 55.6 percent clip from three-point range over his past four games, which should at least allow Jackson to stick in the rotation for the time being even if the Thunder get Gilgeous-Alexander and/or Theo Maledon (COVID-19) back for Tuesday's game versus the Trail Blazers.
Jackson is starting Sunday's game against Milwaukee, Ted Davis of the Milwaukee Bucks Radio Network reports.
Jackson will start his first game of the season Sunday with Theo Maledon (COVID-19 protocols) and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (knee) unavailable. Over the past six games, Jackson is averaging 10.0 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists over 26.8 minutes per contest.
Jackson totaled 20 points (7-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), three rebounds, three assists and two steals over 28 minutes in Friday's 97-95 loss to the Nuggets.
Although Jackson came off the bench Friday, he saw plenty of playing time against Denver and led the team with 20 points. Jackson wasn't able to lead the Thunder to a win, but he recorded a season-high scoring total in the narrow defeat.
Jackson racked up 10 points (3-6 FG, 2-5 3PT, 2-2 FT), two rebounds and an assist in 11 minutes Monday night against the Rockets.
Jackson made the most of his minutes off the bench, scoring six of his 10 points from deep. This marks the first time all season that Jackson has finished in double figures, and with the limited minutes he typically sees, it's unlikely that he'll score at this rate on a consistent basis.
Jackson put up nine points (3-3 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds and one steal in seven minutes off the bench Tuesday in the Thunder's 119-101 loss to the Nuggets.
Thanks to some hot shooting, Jackson was able to lead the Thunder bench in scoring on the night, but he's unlikely to earn more opportunities as a result. He didn't even check into the game until 7:20 remained in the fourth quarter, when the Thunder were trailing by 26 and essentially conceding defeat.
Jackson is starting Tuesday's game against the Magic.
The 25-year-old has yet to see the court this season, but he'll enter the starting lineup Tuesday with George Hill (neck) and Al Horford (rest) sitting out. It's unclear how much of a role Jackson will have given his lack of minutes to this point, but a strong showing early could earn a longer look.
Jackson (undisclosed) will be available for Wednesday's preseason game against the Bulls, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.
Jackson missed Saturday's preseason opener for his new team for undisclosed reasons, but he'll be ready for his debut Wednesday. The 25-year-old averaged 5.5 points and 2.4 rebounds per game across 65 games for the Mavericks last season.
Jackson (undisclosed) won't travel for Saturday's preseason opener against the Spurs, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.
The 25-year-old was acquired by the Thunder in November but won't be making his team debut this weekend for unspecified reasons. Jackson's next chance to take the court will be Wednesday's exhibition versus the Bulls.
Jackson has been dealt to the Thunder along with Delon Wright in exchange for James Johnson, Mark Stein of The New York Times reports.
Jackson averaged 6.5 points, 2.5 rebounds and 0.9 triples across 18.2 minutes in his last two seasons in Dallas. With the Mavericks looking for more veteran experience in their rotation, Jackson will now get an opportunity for a fresh start with a young, inexperienced Thunder roster. Given all the turnaround in Oklahoma City it remains to be seen what type of role the 25-year-old will have, but he at least projects to be in the rotation.
Jackson will start Monday's game against Utah, Brad Townsend of the Dallas Morning News reports.
He'll get the nod in place of Dorian Finney-Smith, who joins Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis in street clothes Monday.
Jackson posted 10 points (4-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt), four rebounds, four assists and one block across 32 minutes during Friday's 121-96 victory over the Grizzlies.
With Tim Hardaway (shoulder) and Dorian Finney-Smith (hip) sidelined, Jackson was given more responsibilities by coach Rick Carlisle. Jackson responded nicely in a season-high 32 minutes, putting on a relatively well-rounded effort. That said, with Hardaway's and Finney-Smith's injuries deemed day-to-day, there may not be anything actionable to do in fantasy with Jackson outside of very deep leagues.
Jackson posted 10 points (3-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and eight rebounds in 27 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 111-107 loss at the Hawks.
Jackson has carved a regular role in Rick Carlisle's rotation, but his playing time has fluctuated, and that has resulted in inconsistent figures across the board. He hasn't topped the 10-point mark since Jan. 6, but at the very least, he has logged 20 or more minutes in two of his last three outings. As a bench player with little chance of starting moving forward, his playing time will be key to determine his upside.
Jackson managed eight points (3-5 FG, 2-2 3Pt), two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 20 minutes during Wednesday's 107-106 loss to the Nuggets.
Jackson logged at least 20 minutes for the fifth time in his last seven appearances. However, he has reached double figures in scoring just once during this recent stretch and only seven times through 33 appearances here in 2019-20.
Jackson will come off the bench Monday against Chicago.
Jackson has started the last two matchups, but he's been held to just 14 points and 14 rebounds over that stretch. He's averaging 17.6 minutes in his last five games off the bench.
