Darnell Jackson has agreed to sign with the Shanghai Sharks.

He played for the Flying Tigers in the CBA last season, averaging 18 points and 10 boards per game, before participating in training camp with the Pacers.

The Pacers have invited former Kings F Darnell Jackson to attend training camp.

Jackson spent the 2011-12 season in Ukraine before heading to the D-League last year, where he averaged 13.8 points and 6.7 rebounds in 28 minutes per game. Don't expect to hear his name during the regular season.

Former Kings F Darnell Jackson is expected to attend training camp with the Jazz.

Jackson signed with BC Donetsk in the Ukraine during the lockout, but apparently hasn't given up on playing in the NBA. He averaged 2.2 points in 138 appearances with the Cavs, Bucks and Kings, and he doesn't have much of a chance to make Utah's roster.

Unrestricted free agent Darnell Jackson has signed with BC Donetsk.

It is unclear whether or not Jackson will have an out clause in his deal. A fringe NBA player, Jackson was made an unrestricted free agent when Sacramento declined to offer him a qualifying contract offer prior the lockout.

Darnell Jackson (ribs) returned to action on Friday, playing 26 minutes during garbage time on his way to 11 points on 4-of-11 shooting with six rebounds, one assist, and one steal.

This line is purely a fluke, though we're happy to see him back on the court after experiencing shortness of breath on Wednesday.

Kings F Darnell Jackson has been diagnosed with costochondritis, also known as inflammation of the rib cartilage.

Jackson gave everyone a scare when he crumbled to one knee on Tuesday night, but he's fine and has been cleared to practice Thursday. He'll be available to play any garbage time Friday night.

Darnell Jackson left Tuesday's game with shortness of breath and will not return.

He has no real impact in fantasy leagues right now, and he will undergo a battery of tests shortly. Here's hoping the situation isn't serious.

Darnell Jackson started for injured Jason Thompson on Tuesday, scoring six points on 3-of-10 shooting with four rebounds, no assists, and no steals or blocks in 22 minutes.

Aside from the poor line, he also left Vladimir Radmanovic wide open for the game-tying three pointer with time expiring. He should be nowhere near fantasy lineups.
Wed, Dec 22, 2010 02:30:00 AM

Darnell Jackson scored eight points and grabbed four rebounds in 21 minutes on Sunday, starting at PF for the Kings in place of Jason Thompson.

Thompson will miss two more games with a finger injury, but Jackson isn't worth even a short-term add in fantasy leagues. He's a veteran glue-guy and little more.
Sun, Dec 19, 2010 09:16:00 PM

Darnell Jackson scored 11 points on 5-of-8 shooting with no rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block in 23 minutes on Wednesday.

"I like him in the lineup," said Paul Westphal. Don't get too excited, though, he's averaging just five points and three boards, and has a long way to go before he becomes valuable in fantasy leagues.
Thu, Nov 11, 2010 01:45:00 AM

Darnell Jackson has been traded to the Kings in the sign-and-trade deal that will send Jon Brockman to Milwaukee.

Jackson won't see much run in Sacramento.

Bucks signed F Darnell Jackson.

Jackson was just cut by the Cavs two days ago to make room for Zydrunas Ilgauskus. He's a big body that can spell a suddenly cold Andrew Bogut. Since Jackson was waived after March 1, he's not eligible to play for the Bucks in the playoffs.

Cavs waived F Darnell Jackson.

Someone had to go to make room for Zydrunas Ilgauskus and Jackson makes sense. The D-Leaguer could be headed back to the Erie Bayhawks.
Tue, Mar 23, 2010 02:47:00 PM

The Cavs recalled forward Darnell Jackson from the D-League.

He is averaging less than a point and 4.2 minutes per game over 26 games for the Cavs this season, and needless to say is not a fantasy option.
