The Indiana Pacers have signed free agents Ron Howard and Darnell Jackson. Howard is a 6-foot-5 swingman who spent last season with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants in the NBA Development League.

Brian T. Smith: Ex-Kings forward Darnell Jackson expected to attend #UtahJazz training camp. Jackson played for Sacramento in 2010-11.
As one of the elder statesmen on this Kings Summer League squad, Jackson is taking it upon himself to hold his younger teammates accountable. He plans on reminding them that the next week is about business if they hope to make their hoop dreams come true. “Everybody’s out auditioning,” said the 26-year-old power forward. “You’re auditioning not just for the Kings, you’re auditioning for every team in the NBA. So you have to be respectful, on the court and off the court. Just be professional whatever you’re doing.” Taking on that leadership role means probably becoming the resident killjoy. But Jackson seems to not mind and is willing to nag teammates when necessary. “At the end of the day, everybody’s a human being (and) everybody makes mistakes,” Jackson said. “You’ve just got to tell them. Some guys are stubborn, some guys listen.”
