By signing a two contract the means Jackson will be spending time with the Delaware 87ers, the Philadelphia 76ers NBA G-League affiliate. But Jackson also has a opportunity to spend up to 23 days with the Philadelphia 76ers.
In his two seasons in the NBA, Jackson has averaged 1.06 points per game, 0.2 steals, 0.4 assists and 0.8 rebounds in 17 games with Boston Celtics and Houston Rockets.
Jackson has spent time in the NBA G-League as well, most recently with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers this season where he averaged 15.8 points per game, 1.1 steals, 3.75 rebounds and 4.1 assists in 16 games.
Last year, the 6 foot 1, 201 pound guard played for the Maine Red Claws where he averaged 14.8 point per game, 1.2 steals, 5.9 assists and 5 rebounds in 32 games.
Jackson played college basketball at Notre Dame University where he averaged 11.6 points per game, 1.1 steals, 3.2 assists and 3.1 rebounds in his three seasons there.
During his team at Notre Dame, Jackson earned many honors including NABC All-District (2) Second Team, All-ACC Second Team (Coaches), All-ACC Second Team (Media), ACC All-Tournament Second Team and ACC Player of the Week.
The newest 76ers caught up with his old assistant Notre Dame coach and currently University of Delaware basketball head coach Martin Ingelsby which is where the Delaware 87ers currently play their home games.
