Sixers Trade For Pierre Jackson

1:53pm: The trade is official, the Pelicans have announced.

FRIDAY, 12:30pm: There’s still no official announcement, but Sixers GM Sam Hinkie confirmed the swap to reporters, including Tom Moore of Calkins Media (Twitter link). Hinkie also expects that Jackson will sign with the Sixers for next season.

THURSDAY, 10:43pm: The Sixers will send 47th overall pick Russ Smith to the Pelicans in exchange for the rights to Pierre Jackson, last year’s No. 42 pick who became a D-League sensation this past season, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports (Twitter link). Jackson never signed with New Orleans, heading overseas after he and the team couldn’t strike a deal following his high-scoring showing in the D-League.

    instant offensive of the bench.. love this move.. wish it was my lakers that pulled this off

    • I think you’re mistaking Pierre Jackson for Reggie Jackson. Pierre was a great scorer at Baylor but he has not played a minute in the NBA, so I’m not sure about his instant offense…unless you know something that 30 GMs and 30 head coaches don’t know about.
