Thunder Sign Frank Jackson

DECEMBER 4: The Thunder have officially signed Jackson, the team announced today in a press release.

NOVEMBER 24: The Thunder have agreed to sign free agent guard Frank Jackson, reports ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski (via Twitter). Terms of the deal aren’t known, but Oklahoma City has already reportedly lined up players for its two-way slots, so it figures to be a standard contract.

Jackson, the 31st overall pick in the 2017 draft out of Duke, missed his entire rookie season with a foot injury, but has appeared in 120 games for the Pelicans over the last two years, averaging 7.2 PPG, 1.8 RPG, and 1.1 APG on .422/.319/.743 shooting during that time.

The 22-year-old was eligible for restricted free agency this fall, but the Pelicans opted not to tender him a qualifying offer, making him an unrestricted free agent. So he can sign with Oklahoma City outright.

Five players who finished the season under contract with the Pelicans are now on track to become members of the Thunder — New Orleans sent Darius Miller, Kenrich Williams, Josh Gray, and Zylan Cheatham to Oklahoma City in the Steven Adams blockbuster that was completed earlier today.

    With the exception of SGA and the guy above….I dunno who is even on the thunder this season. The sign of a true tank season.

      They will finish dead last in the West. Who knows how long it will be until the Thunder can compete in such a deep conference.
