PG – 6’3, 183lbs - 32 years old - 1 year of experience

Despite being a sizeable point guard who was playing at the highest levels of non-NBA basketball, including five consecutive seasons with the EuroLeague powerhouse CSKA Moscow, Jackson had never played in the NBA before this season. The closest he had gotten was a summer league stint in 2010; up until this season, he had never signed an NBA contract. He left it pretty late to do so here as well; after an uncharacteristic season hitherto in China, Jackson finally signed on the last day of the regular season, the last day players can sign. And as the Rockets rested players, he got a big airing in the final regular season game. It didn’t go especially well, but never mind; he finally made it.

Jackson was among the EuroLeague’s best guards during that time. He does not seek to score much, even though he is a very good outside shooter. Rather, he let Nando de Colo and Milos Teodosic do that bit. He instead defended all over the court extremely well, and consistently made heady decisions out of the pick-and-roll. As the third guard in a dominant three-guard rotation, Jackson did a bit of everything, and was a model of efficiency and discipline. And given his size and speed, he could be a good defender at his level, too.

He did not have the opportunity to show it here with the Rockets, really; 35 minutes in one regular season game fresh off the plane in a rotation of players who had not played before, then 17 playoff garbage time minutes. But Jackson is an NBA calibre guard. And he has been for a while. If he wants to spend the last third of his playing career in the NBA, he likely could.

Player Plan: Has an unguaranteed minimum salary contract for next season. Shouldn’t think he will last too long on it considering all the turnover, but he does merit it. He’s way better than Bobby Brown.

Aaron Jackson

Jackson, formerly of Duquesne, has not made the NBA yet. Yet maybe he should. In the last year, his first professional season, Jackson played his way into SerieA, almost impossible for an American rookie to do. Jackson is a big point guard who rebounds, shoots, drives, passes, defends, rebounds and creates for both himself and others; he stands out at no one particular facet, perhaps, yet he does everything well. And is 6'4. And a point guard. What's not to like?
