SEPTEMBER 27TH, 11:36am: The signing is official, the team has announced.
SEPTEMBER 25TH, 11:02pm: The signing has taken place, as the RealGM transactions log indicates.
SEPTEMBER 8TH, 4:55pm: Joe Jackson, an undrafted point guard out of Memphis, is finalizing a free agent deal with the Suns, a league source tells Shams Charania of RealGM (via Twitter). Terms of the deal are not yet known.
Jackson worked out for the Wolves, Kings, Suns, Knicks, Rockets, Mavs, Grizzlies, and Jazz, but didn’t hear his name called in the 2014 Draft. Apparently, Jackson was able to step out in his June 3rd audition in front of Phoenix brass where he worked out alongside Jerami Grant, Ronald Roberts Jr. and Cam Bairstow.
The 6’0″ guard was ranked as the 49th best senior in his NCAA class by DraftExpreess. In 2013/14, Jackson averaged 14.4 PPG, 4.5 APG, and 3.6 RPG in 33.6 minutes per contest.
