With the NBA’s trade deadline two days away, the Cavaliers have shown interest in acquiring the rights of point guard Pierre Jackson, among other deals, league sources told the Akron Beacon Journal. Jackson is a 5-foot-10 guard out of Baylor who is now caught in limbo in the Development League. Jackson was drafted in the second round last year by the Philadelphia 76ers and traded to the New Orleans Pelicans. The Pelicans never signed him, but still possess his draft rights. Jackson is averaging 29.1 points and 6.2 assists with the Idaho Stampede. He set a D-League record last month by scoring 58 points in a victory against the Texas Legends. Akron Beacon Journal

Jackson, a 5-foot-8 guard who was selected in the second round last summer then dealt to the New Orleans Pelicans as part of the draft-night deal that brought Jrue Holiday to New Orleans, said he hopes to get a call up to the NBA soon. But he admitted he doesn't know when that day will come. "That's still up in the air," Jackson said. "I'm just trying to enjoy this weekend as much fun as I can and take in all of the (scenes). I'll leave that up to my agent to figure out." New Orleans Times-Picayune

With reports of other NBA teams' interest in Jackson swirling, the Pelicans and Jackson's agent Colin Bryant continue to talk, according to a league source. Although Jackson never signed a contract with the Pelicans, the team still holds his rights. Jackson, the leading scorer in NBADL who also scored a league-record 58 points earlier this month, showcased his skills Saturday afternoon, scoring 30 points on 11 of 16 shooting and finishing with eight assists in his Future's team 145-142 loss to the Prospects in the NBADL All-Star Game.
