The Mavericks have re-signed Pierre Jackson, the team announced today in a press release. Jackson’s initial 10-day contract with the club expired on Tuesday night, so Dallas has signed him to a second 10-day deal.
Jackson, 25, initially joined the Mavs in December, but was waived prior to the salary guarantee deadline, allowing the team to avoid locking in his full-season deal. Jackson was brought back to the club on January 15, and enjoyed his best game of the season this past Sunday, picking up 10 points and five assists in the Mavs’ 49-point rout of the Lakers.
As our 10-day contract tracker shows, Jackson becomes the third player this season to get a second 10-day deal with the same team, following in the footsteps of Quincy Acy with the Nets and Chasson Randle with the Sixers. If the Mavs want to keep the point guard when his new 10-day contract expires, they’d have to sign him to a rest-of-season deal, since teams can’t ink players to more than two 10-day pacts in a season.
Dallas is now back to a full 15-man roster, with 14 players on guaranteed contracts, plus Jackson’s 10-day contract.
