Reggie Jackson's new five-year, $80 million contract with the Pistons is expected to be finalized this week.
Stan Van Gundy called it a "hell of a decision" to give Jackson $16M annually and it's hard to argue with that assessment. With so many moving parts in the Motor City this offseason, Jackson faces an uphill battle to prove he's worth the coin. Jul 13 - 10:46 AM

Stan Van Gundy believes that the Reggie Jackson signing will be a "hell of a decision."

"If Reggie plays the way we think he is going to play we are going to look back and say that was a hell of a decision," Van Gundy said. "That is the one thing we said, when we get a good young player being able to lock them up long term is good. I don't think in this market we wanted short term. For us having a guy under contract is good." Jackson signed a five-year, $80 million deal last week, so the Pistons will now have to figure out how a Brandon Jennings/Jackson backcourt can coexist.
Jul 12 - 10:39 AM

Reggie Jackson and the Pistons have agreed to a five-year, $80 million extension.

A report in late June suggested that the Pistons were "not 100 percent sold on Reggie," but that was refuted by this deal with an average annual salary of $16 million. Brandon Jennings' future in Detroit is more tenuous than ever with Jackson locked up long-term, and a trade would be the best outcome for both of them from a fantasy perspective -- they could play together for stretches, but it's hard to envision a Jennings/Jackson backcourt succeeding long term.

If Emmanuel Mudiay falls all the way to the Pistons at the No. 8 spot in the 2015 NBA draft, they may decide to let Reggie Jackson walk as a free agent this offseason.

Reggie Jackson will be a restricted free agent this offseason, but the Pistons are reportedly "not 100 percent sold on Reggie." Jackson wants to be a starter, but with Brandon Jennings on the roster and set to be in a contract year, things could get complicated for Detroit. Jackson posted averages of 17.6 points, 9.2 assists, 4.7 rebounds and 1.0 three-pointer per game through 27 games with the Pistons during the 2014-15 season, although those numbers came sans Jennings. It'll be interesting to watch this situation unfold during the offseason.

Stan Van Gundy wants Reggie Jackson to improve on the defensive end of the court.

"Defensively, he's still got a long, long way to go, but on the offensive end of the floor, I mean, he can certainly score and he can create shots for other people." The Pistons are expected to re-sign Jackson, and it will be interesting to see at what number after the point guard reportedly rejected a four-year, $48 million extension from Oklahoma City prior to being traded.
Apr 20 - 10:45 AM

Reggie Jackson was one of seven Detroit players to score in double figures in Wednesday's finale, racking up 24 points, 11 assists and three steals on 9-of-16 shooting.

In a meaningless game, all five Pistons starters scored in double figures, while Andre Drummond joined Jackson with a double-double of 17 points, 12 rebounds, a steal and two blocks. Greg Monroe, who might have played his last game for Detroit as an unrestricted free agent, had just 10 points and two rebounds in 21 minutes, but also came through with four steals. And despite Drummond's woes at the free throw line and a slow start, he was a blast to own this season. And speaking of those two, they're the only two teammates who averaged a double-double this year, outside of the Clippers' DeAndre Jordan and Chris Paul.
Apr 16 - 1:15 AM

Reggie Jackson could not buy a bucket during Sunday's win over the Hornets, scoring just five points on 1-of-7 shooting (3-of-3 FTs), but he still found a way to be effective by handing out 13 assists through 30 minutes of action.

Jackson had been rolling up to this point, averaging an impressive 20.4 points, 10.4 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.0 three-pointer per game through the month of April, so we expect him to bounce-back on Monday with a matchup against the Cavaliers. He also only committed two turnovers tonight, which is a major improvement as he's averaged 6.0 turnovers per game over his last five outings.
Apr 12 - 7:00 PM

Reggie Jackson scored a team-high 21 points against the Pacers during a 107-103 loss on Friday, adding four rebounds, nine assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

He made just 6-of-15 from the field and turned the ball over five times. Jackson has scored at least 20 points in each of his last four games, averaging 23.3 points, 2.8 boards, 11.0 assists, 1.5 steals, 0.3 blocks and 1.0 treys on 54.5 percent from the field. The bad news? He's turned the ball over 6.8 times per game.
Apr 11 - 12:31 AM

Reggie Jackson handed out 15 assists against the Celtics during a 113-103 loss on Wednesday with 21 points, two rebounds, two steals, one 3-pointer and seven turnovers.

He is the engine to the Detroit offense and he continues to post big assist lines with his new team. In his last five, Jackson averaged 18.6 points, 3.6 boards, 10.8 dimes, 1.0 steals and 1.2 treys on 50.0 percent from the field. He's a top-10 point guard for fantasy the rest of the way.
Apr 8 - 11:17 PM

Reggie Jackson scored 29 points against the Heat during a 99-98 win on Saturday, adding three rebounds, 11 assists, one steal and two 3-pointers on 11-of-18 from the field.

He did turn the ball over seven times, so it wasn't all good. Still, Jackson has really picked it up in his last five, averaging 20.6 points, 4.4 boards, 9.6 dimes, 0.6 steals and 1.6 treys on 53.3 percent from the field. This was the Reggie Jackson we were expecting.
Apr 4 - 11:44 PM

Reggie Jackson scored 22 points on 9-of-15 shooting with two rebounds, nine assists, two steals and eight turnovers in Friday's loss.

The turnovers stand out obviously but the fact he's getting it done otherwise is a great sign for a guy dealing with both illness and a sore ankle. Keep him in lineups going forward.
Apr 4 - 12:57 AM

Reggie Jackson played through his illness again on Wednesday, but hit just 3-of-16 shots.

He still flirted with a triple-double with nine points, seven rebounds and eight assists, but may have done more harm than good to fantasy teams tonight. He wasn't feeling well on Tuesday, either, when he double-doubled, and saw his streak of 11 games in double digits snapped. Jackson lasted 29 minutes tonight and owners have to hope his stomach bug and nausea are no longer an issue going forward.
Apr 1 - 10:03 PM

Reggie Jackson (illness) will start Wednesday's game but Stan Van Gundy isn't sure how many minutes he'll play.

Jackson double-doubled on Tuesday despite being severely ill, playing 22 minutes and spending most of the game being attended to by trainers. He's still a must-start player in most formats, but daily-league owners may want to lean toward a healthy alternative. With Spencer Dinwiddie (ankle) unavailable tonight, veteran PG John Lucas III will be unusually busy.
Apr 1 - 5:34 PM

Reggie Jackson battled nausea throughout Tuesday's game, which he still finished with 12 points, two 3-pointers, four boards, 11 assists and two turnovers.

Jackson played only 22 minutes and was clearly exhausted after short stints, requiring near-constant attention from Detroit's trainers throughout the game. It's to his credit that he gutted out a double-double in the Pistons' unexpected win vs. the Hawks, but fantasy owners should consider him questionable to suit up for Wednesday's game vs. the Hornets. Spencer Dinwiddie (ankle) is also iffy for that game, which could lead to huge minutes for John Lucas III.
Mar 31 - 10:01 PM

The Pistons fell in Miami on Sunday, 102-109, despite having Reggie Jackson score 31 points on 12-of-17 shooting with three 3-pointers, six rebounds and nine assists.

Jackson and Andre Drummond (32 points) were unstoppable but they were abandoned by their teammates, who combined for just 39 points on 14-of-49 shooting (28.6 percent). R-Jax was coming off a triple-double and his sluggish start after joining the Pistons is a fading memory as he carries owners deeper into the fantasy playoffs.
