Clippers Sign Reggie Jackson

The Clippers have officially signed Reggie Jackson, as the team relays on its website. The point guard agreed to a buyout with the Pistons earlier this week.

“Reggie is a proven playmaker and scorer, and we are looking forward to adding his experience and creativity to our team,” said president of basketball operations Lawrence Frank.

Jackson will make $734,025 for the remainder of the season, Bobby Marks of ESPN.com tweets. Los Angeles will carry a $512,721 cap hit as a result of the signing.

Jackson, 29, spent the last five years in Detroit, having been acquired from the Thunder in a three-team trade in February 2015. He signed a five-year, $80MM deal with the Pistons a few months later and had been in the final season of that contract before he was released. Jackson gave back a flat $800K in his buyout agreement with the Pistons, reducing Detroit’s dead-money charge for 2019/20 to $17,286,956.

Jackson’s name was among those rumored to be available via trade prior to the deadline, though no deal materialized. The Lakers had interested in inking Jackson earlier this week before the Clippers swooped in.

    Love this! Can run the second unit. Gives Lou some rest. Play Reggie in the 3rd quarter and let Lou do bis thing in the 4th. Also this allows for Pat Bev to get healthy.

      Lol yeah wait until he throws the ball away on a big possesion. Or shoots a fade away 3 with Kawhi amd George on the court, or dribbles out the shot clock. I suggest you tread very lightly with your expectations of this guy!

        Or gets hurt in the first 5 minutes of action and is done for the year.

    Reggie is best friends with paul George and they have wanted to play together for a while. No other team had a chance at Jackson because of that fact
