Jackson has played in only 14 of the Pistons’ 57 games during the 2019-2020 season. In those games he is averaging just shy of 15 points, three rebounds and just over five assists. His field goal percentage is 38.4.
This is Jackson’s 10th NBA season. He played for four seasons with the Oklahoma City Thunder before being traded to the Pistons during the 2014-2015 season. Impressively, he played and started in all 82 games last season, averaging a career-high 15.4 points.
The Clippers are currently third in the Western Conference with a record of 37-18. They are clearly looking for a little more depth to try and solidify their title hopes.
