FEBRUARY 10: Jackson’s two-way contract is now official, the Wizards confirmed in a press release.
The Wizards have an open two-way slot, so no corresponding roster move is necessary. Jackson will join incumbent combo guard Jordan Goodwin as the club’s second two-way player going forward, though Goodwin is a strong candidate to be promoted to the 15-man roster sooner or later.
Jackson, who went undrafted out of Texas A&M this summer, has been playing for Washington’s NBAGL affiliate, the Capital City Go-Go, in 2022/23.
Across 17 games with Capital City, Jackson has been averaging 14.6 PPG on .506/.348/.774 shooting splits. He also is chipping in 3.9 RPG, 3.1 APG and 1.5 SPG. He will no doubt get plenty of chances to boost those averages on this new two-way agreement, as this promotion will see him splitting his time between the Wizards and their G League club.
