HoopsHype Reggie Jackson rumors

December 4, 2013 Updates

It’s absolutely too early to really think about this seeing as Jackson isn’t eligible for an extension off his rookie scale deal until July 1 of next summer. And if no extension is reached there prior to Oct. 31 (sound familiar?), he’d become a restricted free agent July 1, 2015. Meaning, the Thunder would have the ability to match on any offer sheet he signs. But again, the fear is increasing as Jackson puts up lines like 23 points on 10-14 shooting, 18 on 8-11 and 13 on 5-10, looking like all his game is missing is an over-the-top beard.

Jackson's waited a little longer. He was a rookie, a late first-rounder in 2011, when the Thunder reached The Finals against Miami, not getting much time at all as he learned the ropes. But OKC veterans like Nazr Mohammad put the word out that the kid was getting things done in practice, and that he was going to be good. "It was tough," Jackson said. "A guy like Nazr told me to be patient, just continue to work, and my time would come. Nazr and Royal Ivey were my vets. I give them a lot of credit for not letting me go haywire ... just preaching to me on road trips that my hard work was going to pay off." NBA.com

“Perk takes a lot of bullying for us,” Thunder guard Reggie Jackson said. “He makes it easy. He brought that fire for us. Got us a little amped up. Especially with his pregame speech, talking about us being dogs, going out there, being aggressive.” Oklahoman

Brooks on Jackson and Westbrook together: “They’ve both become dynamic players on the offensive end. One of your guards is usually going to be a 2-guard, and you’re going to have to pick who you’re going to guard with. Guarding a point in this league if you’re not a point is hard. For whatever reason, that step over is tough. And they’re both great pick-and-roll players and I trust Russell’s ability to guard any 1s, 2s or 3s in this league with the exception of a few. And they’re both great defensive rebounders for their position.” DailyThunder.com

After the game, Jackson walked gingerly through the team's dressing room, grimacing as he sat at his cubicle. When asked about the injury, Jackson just looked up and smiled, choosing to not comment. Asked how long he's been dealing with discomfort, Jackson again declined to comment. With customary starter Russell Westbrook sidelined while recovering from knee surgery, the Thunder can't afford to lose Jackson. Veteran Derek Fisher is the only other healthy point guard on the roster. Oklahoman

“Oh, man. Russell today…” Jackson said when asked how Westbrook looked, cracking a sly smile. “It’s actually funny. My brother and his brother talk a little before games. His brother told mine that Russell’s probably bouncing better than ever. I had to see it to believe it. One of the dunks (today), he went up and looked like the old Russell, plus some, head at the rim. We’ll be happy when he gets back fully healthy, but it’s good to see him with a smile on his face, being about the team, bouncing back and happy to be back on the court.” Oklahoman
