Pierre Jackson has joined the Texas Legends and is expected to be in uniform for Thursday’s game against the Greensboro Swarm.
The Legends are the D-League affiliate for the Dallas Mavs and acquired Jackson in a trade. Jackson should get a ton of playing time and could be one of the top scorers in the D-League. Jackson was a star in the D-League before his torn Achilles, but he's cooled off as a prospect. We're hopeful he gets another shot in the NBA. Nov 30 - 3:14 PM

Pierre Jackson has agreed to a deal with Cedevita Zagreb in Croatia.

Jackson played for the Blazers during the summer league and attended a free agent camp with the Lakers, but he will have to continue waiting for his next shot to crack an NBA roster.
Oct 15 - 9:16 AM

Pierre Jackson said on Tuesday he hasn't "felt like this in a while."

He's an easy guy to cheer for and hopefully gets another shot. Jackson has quite the shoe collection and he tweeted back on Aug. 3 he'd "be sick" if he didn't get on an NBA roster and Derek Fisher did. After a really nice run at Las Vegas with the Blazers, someone will bring Pappy Jack on board for camp. If he gets an invite to a team with sub-par guard depth, he's someone to watch in deep leagues.
Aug 31 - 5:41 PM

Pierre Jackson was part of the Lakers free agent minicamp on Wednesday.

Jackson played with the Trail Blazers in Vegas Summer League, but is looking to hook on where he can. While Jackson has some upside, he's yet to log a minute of NBA action and shouldn't be on any draft lists.
Aug 18 - 9:40 AM

Pierre Jackson led the Blazers with 18 points on Wednesday, hitting 8-of-18 shots with two 3-pointers, six rebounds, three assists and three steals.

Jackson is vying for a training-camp invite, but he's a long-shot to make the roster since Shabazz Napier already has a guaranteed deal as Damian Lillard's backup.
Jul 13 - 10:20 PM

Pierre Jackson will play for the Blazers at the Las Vegas Summer League.

He was cut by the 76ers prior to the 2015-16 season, but injuries certainly played a part. Jackson is known for dropping 58 points in a D-League game back in 2014, but he's yet to log a single minute in the NBA.
Jul 5 - 4:18 PM

Pierre Jackson will attend Knicks mini camp, according to Ian Begley of ESPN.

Jackson will also work out for Portland and Dallas later this month, but will hope to hook on with the Knicks as an end-of-roster player or summer league invite. Jackson is still just 24 years old, but has yet to log one minute in the NBA and can be ignored by fantasy owners.
Jun 7 - 10:57 AM

The Idaho Stampede added Pierre Jackson.

He was cut by the 76ers in preseason and will have to recover from his Achilles tear completely. Hopefully we can see Jackson and his super cool shoe collection.
Jan 4 - 6:49 PM

76ers waive G Pierre Jackson.

It's just bad luck for a guy who scored 58 points in a D-League game two seasons ago. He had an Achilles tear two summers ago and it was clear his groin injury this month hurt his chances to make the team. If you like cool sneakers on NBA courts, this is a sad day.

The Sixers have reportedly decided to waive Pierre Jackson.

Jackson just couldn't get healthy during the preseason, and when he finally got on the floor, the diminutive point guard didn't show enough to stick. The Sixers will pay him $750,000 to go home.

Pierre Jackson missed all seven shots from the field on Friday, adding three rebounds, three assists and one turnover.

He didn't help himself and sadly we might not be seeing Jackson's incredible shoe game this season. We'll find out tomorrow if he makes the team, which seems doubtful. In his defense, he wasn't 100 percent.

Pierre Jackson (groin) will not have a minutes limit on Sunday and is expected to play a lot.

Jackson hasn't been good in the preseason, but it should be noted that he isn't 100 percent. Head coach Brett Brown seemed open to the idea of keeping several point guards on the roster for opening night due to the injuries to Tony Wroten and Kendall Marhsall, so Jackson still has a decent shot to make the team. T.J. McConnell has been playing well recently, so Jackson does need to step up in a big way.

Pierre Jackson didn't have it on Friday, scoring just two points with one rebound, three assists and two turnovers.

He was on a minutes restriction tonight, but still couldn't get it going. Jackson hasn't hit his stride since returning from his Achilles injury in Las Vegas, so he might not make the team.
Fri, Oct 16, 2015 10:32:00 PM

Pierre Jackson (groin) is planning to play in Friday's preseason game against the Wizards.

This is good news for Jackson as he could be in danger of being left off the 15-man roster and needs a strong finish to the preseason. While Jackson could play his way into solid minutes with Isaiah Canaan managing to rack up zero assists on Monday, he's battling Canaan, Kendall Marshall (knee), Tony Wroten (knee), and T.J. McConell for minutes, so he's not much more than a deep-league flier at the moment.
Thu, Oct 15, 2015 01:33:00 PM

Pierre Jackson (groin) was limited in practice on Wednesday.

He needs to get healthy because Jackson might wind up being left off the 15-man roster to start the season. After tearing it up in the D-League in 2013-14, Jackson hasn't had his game translate and it could be due to his Achilles tear from last summer.
