Josh Jackson Joins Kings’ G League Team

Josh Jackson, who finished last season with the Kings, has officially joined Sacramento’s G League affiliate in Stockton, tweets Brandon Nunes of Kings Pulse. Michael Scotto of HoopsHype (Twitter link) first reported that Jackson had signed a G League contract and was set to join the Stockton Kings.

Jackson, the fourth selection in the 2017 draft, was in training camp with the Raptors but was waived shortly before the start of the season. The 25-year-old wing has previous G League experience, playing 26 games with the Memphis Hustle in 2019/20.

Jackson has turned into an NBA journeyman after spending his first two seasons in Phoenix. The Suns traded him to the Grizzlies in 2019, and he signed with the Pistons as a free agent in 2020. Detroit shipped him to Sacramento as part of a four-team deal at the trade deadline last February, and he appeared in 12 games with the Kings before becoming a free agent again.

In five seasons, Jackson has played 291 total games with career averages of 11.3 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.8 assists.
