76ers Release Demetrius Jackson

The Sixers are waiving point guard Demetrius Jackson, who was on a two-way contract, reports Shams Charania of The Athletic (via Twitter). According to Charania, Jackson will go on to sign a contract to play in China. The 76ers have also confirmed the move, per a press release from the team.

Jackson appeared in six games for the 76ers this season, averaging 3.7 points per game while shooting 33.3 percent on 3-pointers. Jackson has bounced around the league since he was selected in the second round of the 2016 draft. His most notable stop was with the Rockets last season, in which he played in 12 games but struggled to hit shots.

The 76ers will likely look to fill that two-way spot as they continue to figure out the depth and rotation behind their big three of Ben Simmons, Jimmy Butler and Joel Embiid.
