Articles about Pierre Jackson

July 5, 2014

Pierre Jackson - The Sixers acquiired Jackson's draft rights on draft night for those of Russ Smith, which is odd, because Jackson is better. Last season in the D-League, he proved he was hardy, fearless and extremely productive, averaging 29.1 points per game (second only to Manny Harris) alongside 6.2 assists in 40.9 minutes a game. He showed he could shoot over anyone, get to the rim against anyone, make tough ones, create his own shot, and change a game with his offensive output. And yes, of course he is small. That doesn't change what he did and doesn't change what he could go on to do as much as we might think. He's a scorer, and he can do that anywhere. Anyone who tries to change his game so as to shore up his 6.2/4.0 assist to turnover ratio runs the significant risk of taking Jackson away from his strengths. He's a scorer and he's 5'10. Come to peace with them both because he cannot change either.
