A Reggie Jackson resurgence

Reggie Jackson stayed in Detriot for six seasons, playing 299 games, starting 293 of them. With the Pistons, he was inconsistent and often made Detriot fans furious. He saw an uptick in his numbers thanks to playing more minutes. Jackson averaged 16 points, five assists, two rebounds, and shot 35 percent from beyond the arc.

More from Thunderous Intentions

Jackson’s Detriot experience ended a few months ago when he joined the L.A. Clippers as a buyout market pickup.

Through nine games with L.A., Reggie Jackson was playing incredibly well. Jackson had a few standout efforts in his nine-game stint with the Clippers to this point.

Against the Denver Nuggets, Jackson posted ten points, seven assists, and eight rebounds on 66 percent shooting from the floor, and 50 percent shooting from deep!

He followed that up with a 13 point night against the 76ers, that saw him also swat a pair of shots, and dish out three assists on his way to pulling down four rebounds.

The Clippers went 7-2 with him on the roster, with him scoring 18 points per 36 minutes, on an impressive 50/45/90 shooting clip. Just as he was finding his stride with a championship contender, the NBA season was suspended.

Re-Grade: A-

Reggie Jackson, without the lock room lunacy, would’ve earned an A, especially given the fact that at worst he was the third most talented player remaining. Given how his career panned out, and positional value, the Jackson draft pick was a right pick gone wrong.
